TomTom's Biker Friendly GPS Is A Rough Rider

By Tony Ibrahim | Monday | 18/02/2013

Bikers with no sense of direction rejoice: TomTom has introduced the GPS rider.

TomTom's rider is a portable GPS designed specifically for bikers. Biker-friendly tweaks include instructions being relayed over bluetooth, a 4.3 inch glove friendly touch screen and a weather resistant (including rain) body. Included in the kit is a new charging bike dock which turns the GPS on or off with the bike's ignition. 

With TomTom's Rider, Bikers can choose the quickest route, the most scenic or their own custom ride.

"We listened to feedback from motorbike communities to create a device that was customised for the way [bikers] want to ride," said Winnie Kwan, Senior Marketing Manager, Asia Pacific at TomTom. "We found that the overwhelming majority of bikers use their motorcycle for recreational purposes and many actively seek out routes that offer fantastic scenic touring experiences. TomTom Rider gives bikers the ability to find and ride the best scenic routes in the world."

TomTom's rider will be available from retailers in March. Additional features follow compliments of the official press release.

Key Features:

Winding Roads: TomTom's Windings Roads feature allows bikers to select routes with the most bends for a more exciting ride.

Upload Routes and Go: TomTom's Upload Routes and Go feature enables bikers to upload preferred routes captured online to the TomTom Rider device. These routes can be shared with other riders via Bluetooth.

PC Route Management via Tyre: Users can download Tyre® interactive software to search, create and edit routes on a PC before uploading them to the TomTom Rider device. These can then be shared with friends.

All-Weather Device: TomTom Rider has a glove-friendly screen that responds instantly to touch. It is designed for any weather conditions, including bright direct sunlight.

Free Australian Lifetime Maps: TomTom Rider includes free Australian Lifetime Maps. For the life of the product, users can download four or more full updates of the map on the device every year, which includes all updates to the road network, addresses and Points of Interest.

Map Share: Users benefit from free Daily Map Changes from the TomTom Map Share community, which includes dynamic changes such as new speed limits and blocked roads. Map Share helps overcome the more frequent road changes and so avoid delays or detours.

Points of Interest: Via TomTom Rider, users can access the Points of Interest feature to find interesting places to stop en-route, such as restaurants, motels and fuel stations. Personalized Points of Interest can also be added, for future reference.

IQ Routes: TomTom's IQ Routes uses real travel times for each and every road shared by millions of riders, therefore providing the optimum route and arrival time.

Accessories: A range of optional accessories are available for the TomTom Rider personal navigation device, including a car mounting kit; charging bike dock; and a unique anti-theft solution.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
