I just received a TomTom Rider as a gift and have a couple of questions:

1. I plan on using the Rider for motorcycle trips and wondered if there are any pc based mapping programs (streets and trips, etc) that I can plan a route on and download to the TomTom?

2. When we travel on our motorcycles we typically want to plan a route similar to what you can do in programs like streets and trips (example you can type in the intersection of US-6 and SR-287, 19003 and it pin point that). Is this possible on this unit?

Hi,
Sorry you have not had any replies and this ones a bit late but here goes. There is a program called " tyre " and if used in conjunction with google earth you are able to plan your routes mile by mile and and use it on the rider, let me know if you need anymore information.
