My Rider V1 sat lock has died, get 5 end stop satellites and thatís it all day, along with it leaks and the pins are worn out so I made a patch lead up, so I got a new one

Rider Urban came with 845 maps and 9.205 , did the map guarantee and it didnít work so I had to get on the phone to tom tom, well !! it worked all OK in less then 5 mins I had the new maps on it ,I was well imprest with them

Pro:
Faster boot up
2 sec sat lock
better docking station
better GUI
nicer looking map
usb plug (no where for the water to get in )
more routing options ( the one thing I didn't like, the V1 would rout me 30 miles more to save 30 secs) so time will tell if it sends me down muddy roads with the no unpaved road option set
2 gb fast ram so up dating is a lot faster

Cons :
no option to set compass to point at dest with distance with the V1 I would ride at the shortest rout by the compass ,if I let it do it for me I would end up going down some deadly roads for a Bike
no power caddy as standard, but I have usb power plug on the bike so in the dry plug the usb lead in

will add some more as I use it up to 10 time a day and 10hrs a day
