Been there, done that! In the absence of a paper clip, you just have to let the battery run down and it'll be OK next time you switch it on. Not great if you were planning on using it in the time it t ...

There's a list of the phones that Tomtom staff have proven to work with the Rider on their website. They break the functionality down into 4/5 separate areas and they say exactly what (didn't) work fo ...

I've done it with a Garmin Streetpilot i3 and it was OK... I could even hear it (a bit). Bike satnavs become hard to "read" clearly on bright days and putting one underneath a piece of shiny clear pl ...

Hi all,

what's the situation regarding security / copy protection with maps for the TTR2? I see the US/European maps for sale on Ebay and I don't want to buy a dud. Can a map card be swapped around ...

Bear in mind that the dock could be easily stealable, depending on which mount option you use. Is it a RIDER or RIDER2?

It's a Rider 2.

Thanks guys. I was wondering... can you safely leave the dock attached to the bike at all times - even when the TTR isn't there? I'm just wondering how weather-proof the dock is...

TIA

Hi all,

My Transalp will be in for a service next week and I want them to fit the battery cable for my TTR while they're at it. They haven't done one before and they're not keen to attempt it witho ...

TomTom HOME requires the device to be connected and switched on even during the planning stage and only runs as a 'virtual device'; that is you get a 3.5" screen to work with.

Indeed, and it is p ...

PostForum: Motorcycle GPS Users   Posted: Fri Sep 14, 2007 10:05 am   Subject: TT Rider Vs TT Rider 2 - What is the difference???
I think the main differences are that the mount and the in-helmet speaker (both of which were - I believe - problematic on the v1 Rider) have been replaced by high-quality 3rd party components from Ra ...

I'm reasonably chuffed with my Rider 2 so far. As mentioned in other threads, my first one was replaced as it didn't grab the SD card properly. I've found that it does some rather stupid things such a ...

OK, cheers.

Well, I've invested in a card reader and hooked it up and lo and behold, Tomtom Home has recognised it and downloaded some updates.

Now I might be having a senior moment here, but I ...

I seem to remember reading that some folks were able to get Tomtom home working by putting the SD card into a card reader on the PC instead of actually having the Rider connected to the PC. ...
