Hi

I have been using my XDA Orbit as sat nav on my bike, but it takes a long time to set up and I need to install a mount. Also, cannot receive calls at the same time as using Sat Nav.

Has anyone tried the new rider yet, and does the headset allow you to dual connect to a phone and the sat nav?

Thanks for any advice

Yes, the headset allows for audio navigation instructions and telephone calls, but it's actually the RIDER2 which has the dual connection, not the headset.

Thanks for the advice

I have ordered my TT Rider from GPS World, with a promise of delivery today.............................guess what nothing turned up!

Annoyed because I have a long trip tomorrow and wanted to fit it tonight.

Cannot even get a reply from their support, despite the fact that they were very prompt to reply before purchase!

Fitting it to a Yamaha Thundercat, so hope mount will work

20 MPG, eh? Laughing I can use the 'phone at up to 40-50 mph before it gets unusable and I can hear the audio instructions at 70mph. In both instances I was using 'rhubarb and custard' earplugs. My helmet is an Arai Astro-R.
