Customer Reviews for TomTom Sat-Nav - Rider 550 Premium
Can't get lost Great SatNav
The SatNav is very well built and has a great attachement capability. It's easy to mount on a bike or use it in the car with the car mount. It's easy to use and follow the navigation. While riding it's easy to change stuff with the gloves on. It has constant updateds on speed cameras, and roads so you wont get lost with this. The only down side I can think of, is if you want to have updates on the trafic you need to connect it to your phone and the app for the phone is not great as it's always on. Also if you connect it to a intercome you cannot controle the volumn of the SatnNav on the SatNav but need to do it via the phone or intercome. Overall I would recomend this SatNav to anyoneRead more
This is a really good product and I am finally able to get places without getting lost! Within the time I've had it, it has generally been really good but sometimes seems to get lost when on the motorway and suggests an alternative route while pointing to the nearest exit junction- this may well be due to the settings or something and does not happen often. Overall I really like it and would definitely recommend.Read more
Top notch! Although I've transferred from a Garmin I've had for years finally sussed out the ease of the tomtom, and I'm no wizard with this sort of stuff!!Read more
Not just for the bike!
A great bit of kit. Superb on the bike and also in the car. We have just had a trip to Italy and took the 550 with us. Lucky for us as no Sat Nav in the hire car! It never let us down. Easy to use and great with the app for my iPhone. Well worth the money. Comes with everything you need to mount on the bike and in the car (with the premium pack). Very pleased.Read more
Gets me there with bells and whistles

Excellent product, very easy to set up and use. Very well made and will no doubt last for a while.Read more
Love this bit of gear!
I'd been hankering after one of these for some time - I had a Rider 2013 before this - but it was slow when recalculating etc. No regrets to date - wifi updates are very handy, the MyDrive functionality is a little ropey - e.g. transferring routes to and from the device doesn't seem to work bi-directionally. Functionality has been very impressive, especially when connected to my phone for live traffic updates - the right hand journey bar shows how far away your next filling station/cup of coffee is, which is awesome. It will read aloud text/WhatsApp messages, and will interact with Siri apparently if that's useful to you. So far I love this. Good investment, definitely.Read more
Tomtom good but not perfect
Nice unit , simple display and touch menu. Possibly too simple for the more savvy. Also it's a 4.3 screen not 5.5 as you might think being called the 550. It's simplicity is compensated for by its no fuss operation. Works really well with the Wi-fi to plan routes in mydrive and my route then upload straight to unit. Quick and easy route planning but no fuel range setting so you will need to manually find a fuel stop at your tanks range unlike competitor unit. I still cannot connect to my Bluetooth headphone and use the voice instruction guidance . Also, although it connects to the P20pro phone it can't use its data services but I can upload routes from mydrive app. Information is well delivered on the screen but I find it slow to keep up when going around roundabouts so need to check your exit before entering the junction. . I liked the ease to swivel from horizontal to vertical alignment of the unit but I found you need to go into settings and lock the display as it kept going back to horizontal when leaning over during cornering. The internal fuse is in the mounting and is no simple task to replace so I recommend fitting a inline 2 amp fuse even though the manual says it's not required to help save a possible nightmare later changing fuses. Overal I'm pleased having brought it at sports bike shop due to the great price. Otherwise I might have said it was over priced ???? Good battery life 6 hrs if you decide not to connect it to battery. Strangely no covers or caps for electrical terminals on the mount if you remove the unit from the bike or caps for cable so I interested to see how these deal with weather?Read more
Excellent piece of kit, easy to operate, easy to read, highly recommended.Read more
Easy to fit, locking unit was a godsend, I don't have to take the unit off if I just pop into a shop. The response of the screen is very good and makes travelling an easier task. The voices are great as you can have different people on different journeys so it doesn't get boring.Read more

Questions and Answers
I have a 2019 Multistrada 1260s, and I have a Ducati sat nav bracket fitted behind the screen above the dash. Will the Tomtom 550 fit this bracket, and can I plug it into the 12v socket on my dash. Thanks PaulMarch 26, 2019
The RAM Mount included with this Sat-Nav is suitable for bars/brackets with a diameter of 0.5" - 1.25". The TomTom Rider series must be installed in the cradle provided and powered from the motorcycle battery. The accessory ports installed on modern motorcycles are not powerful enough to keep the device operating correctly.
I have a 2018 Kawasaki Z1000SX Tourer - does the sat nav fit to the provided Kawasaki mount? Thanks.February 25, 2019
The TomTom will fit the Kawasaki sat nav mount.
Does this come with the hard wiring kit to wire straight to my motorbike?September 28, 2018
The box contains a motorcycle mount, Ram mount, USB cable and a power cable. The power cable can be connected to the battery, or can be wired into your bikes loom (although we would suggest that a professional does this)
Will I be able to import routes from alternative sources, e.g. Routes provided by Motorcycle Touring Holiday Company ? or from website such as BestBikingRoads.com ? As I used to be able to do with my old Rider V5 and with the earlier V2.August 16, 2018
We can confirm that you are still able to transfer routes from your laptop/PC to your 550 device.
