    Ive had my 550 for a while now. Changed from the Garmin 595Lm to the 550 mainly because of the almost unreadably dim, fuzzy display on the new Zumo
    so far the TomTom Rider 550 has given some real headaches...
    1. Lean into a corner, and the orientation flips to portrait, so lock it in landscape mode unless you want to be seriously annoyed
    2. traffic wont work, known issue, no answers or updates, safety cameras also not working...
    3. no music control... urgh
    4. Phone function paired with an iPhone 8 plus starts music playing on the phone..wtf
    5. no elevation data
    6. no real data page... come on TomTom
    7. no “Cockpit” page...
    actually, the only nice thing about it right now is the clarity of the screen
    its off my bike untill a serious update is released
    sooooo much can be fixed with a firmare update and some software coding. In a waning market one would think they will try harder...

    Changed as well and so far the Rider550 is one big disappointment... if it were one the listed problems... however the list is much longer then these 7 points

    Too True, Just_Me

    Mine is on the kitchen counter, useless on the bike
    now its bombing into bright white screens or EGA Leasure Suit Larry graphics...
    needs a complete restart, wifi keeps dropping, updates and maps a nightmare.
    why, oh why is there not just ONE decent unit on the market????
    i may try the Nuviz next
