TomTom introduces GPS device just for motorcycle riders
TomTom has introduced a new portable navigation device just for motorcyclists with the design and features based on feedback from the rider community.
The TomTom Rider has a 4.3-inch touchscreen and offers navigation based on the routes the motorcyclist wants to ride including fastest, most scenic and personalised routes.
By downloading the Tyre interactive software, bikers can search, create and edit their own routes on a PC and upload them to the TomTom Rider and also share them with other riders using the device’s Bluetooth connection.
The TomTom Rider can also use that Bluetooth connection to feed the audio from the product to the rider’s helmet so they can keep their eyes on the road.
And the touchscreen is also glove-friendly with large icons that make it easy to navigate the device’s menu system.
TomTom Rider is also weather proof so it can be used in any conditions whether it’s bright sunshine or driving rain.
A new charging dock also means the device will automatically turn on with the ignition of the bike and off again when the motorcycle is shut down.
Another key feature of the TomTom Rider includes is Winding Roads which allows users to select routes with more bends for a more enjoyable and exciting ride.
And like other TomTom products, the Rider comes with free lifetime Australian maps.
There are also IQ Routes that provides real time travel times depending on the time of the day you are planning your ride.
TomTom Rider will be released in March with pricing to be announced closer to the launch date.
