Customer Reviews for TomTom Sat-Nav - Rider 450 World
Robust and easy to use
Easy to install and set up. Have only used it a couple of times to make sure it was installed correctly but is clear and easy to follow.Read more
A little disappointed that you cannot have music on through your phone whilst using the rider 450. I should have purchased the 550 that allows music whilst using the device.Read more
Simple to use and excellent graphics.Read more
Poor back-up service
The device itself is OK. I originally bought a Rider 410 but after 38 days and only the second time I used it there was condensation under the screen. Took it back hoping it would be replaced, but no, it was sent back to Tom Tom. I was told it would be a week! After nearly 4 weeks still no Tom Tom - it apparently got "lost" in the system. SBS then replaced it with a 450 as they had no 410. In fairness I was lent a 410 by SBS whilst it was away for repair. Very disappointing as I had to keep doing all the chasing up. Not my best experience with SBS.Read more
I got this mainly for the plan a thrill function which is simply amazing. I haven't done a big tour in years so doubt I'll use it for that, but I've no doubt it'd be very good. However I do struggle for nice places to go on a ride out without using the same old routes, or go through the getting lost process of finding decent roads which is very hit and miss. With the TomTom on Sunday I just tapped where I wanted to go and it mapped a fantastic route there and back. Fitting was fairly straight forward (with my brothers help to solder connections on for the battery). But the dock is incredibly stiff at the moment getting the until on and off. I contacted TomTom who said this should loosen of time, hope so as it's a bit of a pain at the min. Not really used many of the function, but it seems feature packed. I don't have a Bluetooth headset yet but think that would help so I'll pick one up soon.Read more
Easy and compact
Having looked around for a Sat-Nav to ease my wife's mind on my tank bag routes I decided to go for the TomTom 450 Rider. Not disappointed at all. I have easily managed to load my own preferred European routes. Good clear screen with easy to follow directions. Lots of features that I haven't made use of yet. Sales staff Mark was very helpful. A great Sat-Nav, well worth the great price.Read more
It's solid and waterproof
This TomTom Sat-Nav is an essential piece of Motorcycle kit, even if you know how to get there. It's solid, waterproof, with good aesthetics, and comes with an easy mount, with the ability to rotate to portrait. It has lifetime maps and speed camera updates, and connects easily to Bluetooth components. I just can't get on the bike without it!Read more
Some great features
Got some good features that the last one didn't have. Large screen, easy to read, simple to use. Good blue tooth connectivity. Life time map and camera updates. It will get its true test when we go over to France in July.Read more

Questions and Answers
Can I disable speed camera alert on this model because I have heard this function is illegal in some eu countries. ThanksApril 27, 2019
TomTom advises that when you drive into an area or country that does not permit speed camera warnings, your Rider switches the speed cameras service off. You will not receive speed cameras warnings in those areas or countries. Some areas or countries permit limited speed camera warnings, for example only warnings for fixed cameras, or warnings for risk zones. Your Rider automatically switches to give limited warnings when you cross into those areas or countries.
