Not getting lost

After researching a decent business to buy some bike essentials I decided to ride my bike to collect. I've only be riding for a month so this seemed a perfect opportunity to get to know roads outside my local areas. The idea was to use my mobile GPS to get there, let's just say after riding around I was getting frustrated with my mobile as had to keep stopping to look at the map, After 6 hours on the road and mobile battery power depleted I returned home empty handed. The item I had intended to collect was a Tomtom 550 motorbike satnav so I ordered it online from the Sportsbikeshop. and got it delivered. It was really easy to use Sportsbikeshop's website and the Reading store staff were very helpful on the phone too. The Tomtom is a great piece of kit, simple to set up and use with good graphics, journey options and mount is strong and versatile. The Sportsbikeshop Prices are very competitive keep up the good work.. Thanks. .

Very well designed

I am delighted with this latest version, downloading updates directly from our router at home via the wireless connection, and keeping up to date with traffic information via the bluetooth connection to my mobile phone. It even offers to read texts that arrive on the phone when connected to my Sena headset. The only disappointments are its inability to transfer routes I've saved on the TomTom across to the 'My Drive' programme on my Mac (it'll only transfer 'tracks'), and a few occasions during a week in Ireland when it repeatedly lost audio connection to my intercom (a friend with the same TomTom had the same problem, so it doesn't seem to have been a fault with my headset); but those issues don't take away from the excellent qualities of this well designed sat nav.

Navigation that works -simply

Like the Ronseal advert the TomTom does just what it says on the tin. A bright screen works well with or without gloves: and touch sensitivity is adjustable. Straight-forward menus backed by sensible help tips make operation easy. And it's a really tough device - a casual drop just scuffs the case. Transferring routes to the device by Wi-Fi is so much easier than finding the correct lead to plug in! In MyRouteApp the 'Save' menu copies routes directly to the TomTom application.

Best motorcycle sat nav

Everything can be better but as it is I cannot fault the device, Easy to set up and use, as uncomplicated as it needs to be, I use it with MyRouteApp route planner smooth and simple. I have just got rid of my BMW which had a Garmin Nav VI installed, that was over complex difficult to programme so to compare much prefer TomTom. My old TomTom 400 died some time ago battery issues so hopefully this will be better on that front.

A big step-up on earlier Riders.

I have had a Tomtom Rider for about 8 years, the company stopped supporting it some time ago but I persisted with it and did the job OK. But the time has come for a replacement and I opted for another Tomtom due to not being able to understand the whole Garmin thing. The Rider 550 is a very much more capable bit of kit and I'm getting on well with it. The problems I have are not with the satnav but with the MyDrive thing, apparently put together by monkeys with spanners. The unit is very easy to use and of high quality, Updates do take time but you need to allow for this. You do need to wire it in to your battery to get the best results. But the satnav is very good and worth the effort, probably the best currently available. I'd recommend it.
