TomTom Unveils the New TomTom RIDER - Its Award Winning Navigation Solution for Bikers

UK, 11 April 2007 –TomTom, the world’s largest navigation solution provider, today announces the launch of the new TomTom RIDER, TomTom’s all in one navigation solution designed for bikers by bikers.

The new TomTom RIDER will come in two versions: TomTom RIDER Europe will feature complete door-to-door navigation anywhere in Western Europe and TomTom RIDER Regional will come with maps for the UK and Ireland.

Combining ease of use, portability, a touchscreen that is specially developed for use with gloves and TomTom’s award winning software, the new TomTom RIDER is the perfect tool to ensure bikers can safely and reliably get from A to B.

In addition to being waterproof, the new TomTom RIDER comes with a new Cardo scala-rider™ Bluetooth® headset for in-helmet spoken instructions. The new headset fits open and closed helmets and has exceptional noise cancellation performance to ensure that bikers can hear directions and phone calls with unparalleled clarity. TomTom RIDER also comes with a new RAM® mount that fits on virtually all motorbikes and is easy to mount. Its design is renowned worldwide to withstand the toughest conditions bikers may encounter.

To ensure ultimate safety, the new TomTom RIDER features a secure dock on which the RAM mount fits easily, as well as a unique four icon user interface that is ideal for gloves.

“TomTom RIDER is the first ever navigation solution specifically designed for motorbikers and the world’s best-selling. This new TOMTOM RIDER gives bike riders more of what they love when navigating on their bikes — high quality, easy to use and safe navigation, in addition to impeccable vocal instruction, smart services and extras to ensure they have a great bike experience,” said Harold Goddijn, TomTom’s chief executive officer.

For bikers who own a car, TomTom RIDER also has a car-kit accessory that allows the TomTom RIDER to be used in a car much like the TomTom GO and the TomTom ONE ranges. This car-kit accessory can be purchased for just €79.95.

The new TomTom RIDER will be available from the end of May 2007. Pricing is expected to be approximately £300 - £400.

TomTom HOME will also be available to TomTom RIDER users. TomTom HOME is TomTom’s free software application enabling users to manage, download, store and transfer content from their computer onto their TomTom device.

Content and services provided by TomTom’s unique PLUS offering are available for TomTom RIDER as well, managed through TomTom HOME.

I doubt it, from my understanding the hardware has had a redesign in that area but we shall see at the show!

Anybody know when the TomTom Rider V2 will be released in the US?

Also, is there a list of differences between V1 and V2 somewhere to help me determine if the wait will be worth it?
