Hi all,

[url=http://investors.tomtom.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=891265"; target="_blank]Amsterdam, 15 January 2015[/url]  TomTom today launches the all-new TomTom RIDER, designed to make every motorcycle ride more exciting. For the first time, bikers can choose the level of twists and turns they want to ride to create their own adrenaline-filled adventure. 

The all-new TomTom RIDER helps bikers discover and explore new routes. Simply select an area to ride on the map and TomTom RIDER will suggest the most exciting round-trip. Bikers can build excitement before setting out by creating and sharing touring adventures with friends and uploading direct to their TomTom RIDER.

We believe that every ride is a chance for adventure, said Corinne Vigreux, co-founder and managing director, TomTom Consumer. So we have designed TomTom RIDER to give bikers more ways to create and discover exciting routes. From the freedom of cruising the open road, to the thrill of leaning into the tightest curve on the highest peak, with RIDER, bikers can create and ride their own perfect adventure.

The stylish, yet rugged TomTom RIDER has been completely redesigned for life on the road.

An innovative rotating mount allows bikers to switch to portrait view to see more of the bends ahead. It has a glove-friendly, interactive screen to make it easy to find and explore new places. Bluetooth® enabled audio instructions delivered to the headset or helmet, give bikers more freedom to just enjoy the ride.

The new TomTom RIDER is expected to be available in late March/early April 2015.

    If you knew this on 15th January, why did a "helpful" Matthew sell me the previous model on 9th January with the promise that there wasn't a new model on the horizon?
    Luckily I don't tax my bike till April so can return the old miss sold stock for a refund against the new model, where do I return to?

    I'm no biker but just curious. Did TT think of connecting the device to the Bluetooth helmets so the bikers can use voice instructions as well?

    Hopefully it is glove compatible

    It is glove compatible. And as far as I know, instructions can be heard on BT.

    Hi Donsy,

    Welcome to the forum!

    Could you post with some more details of your problem(s) to the Rider board, please? You're more likely to get help there :D

    Is it chance that this all-new Rider device will work as intended?
    I mean especially bluetooth. Crucial issues are not solved for over 1 year.

    Bought a Rider 410 Premium Pack a month ago and it has been excellent. All aspects worked straight away including gloved use, bluetooth for phone calls and directions, waterproof and big battery life.
    Planning ride-outs with my mates has been so easy using My Drive, I can fine-tune the route and download to my TT Rider (and share with my mates).
    I'm in the middle of a big tour all over North Wales and I've not wasted any time getting lost on this trip.
    Speed camera awareness is nearly 100%, particularly average SCs, with the 410 calculating my average speed once in the monitored area.
    Loads of updates already - free for life, as well!
    I cannot recommend this item highly enough - very slick bit of biking kit! :D
