Sat Nav's

Hi Everyone,

Just wondered what the thoughts were on the Tom Tom Rider sat nav.
I have a Garmin 660 at the moment and found it almost unworkable, probably me. Anyway decided to change it.
Went to Bucklers Hard in Hampshire today, pressed the home button to get me back to Reading and it kept trying to return me to where I'd just come from!!

Cheers Richard.

I've got one mainly because I like the one I've got in the car. I don't find it as intuitive to use as the car version but the more I experiment the better it gets. The plan a thrill mode is brilliant, in France last year we discovered roads that we would never have found on a map.
It hasn't led me down any blind alleys......yet - but I guess never say never!  :005:

I've had 3 over the years and the only times it has ever led to me astray is when I've accidentally asked it to.

I've just got a Rider 400 with my new CR. Free Lifetime Maps/Traffic/Safety Cameras but they've changed the mount & power lead  :023:  so it wont yet fit on my 1200. I'll be trying it out today as I have a x-country ride to Aylesbury to do.

Happy to recommend TT. And the associated TYRE planning software.
