In helmet spoken instructions via the BluetoothTM included headset and the speed linked volume (volume of voice instructions will increase/decrease depending on speed of your bike) and the anti-glare screen that provides an optimal view, even in direct sunlight makes navigation along the quickest, shortest or avoiding toll roads route chosen quick and simple. Multiple waypoints and destinations can be used entered into the TomTom RIDER also.

The TomTom RIDER offers hands-free calling via BluetoothTM connection with a compatible mobile phone. (For safety reasons it blocks outgoing calls while the bike is moving, but if you choose to accept an incoming call it is automatically routed to your helmet. When the bike isn't moving or you have stopped for a break you can make and receive calls normally.)

The TomTom RIDER features an integrated GPS antenna and is ready for TomTom Plus services. This TomTom satellite navigation system can also be used within a car and recognises if you are in a car or on a motorbike so there's no need to adjust the RIDER for use in the car.
