TomTom Urban Rider - seriously dumbed down sat nav

Advantages: It gets you to your destination... eventually, minimum expectation of Sat Nav to be honest
Disadvantages: Pretty much everything except what has been kept from the old model.

The TomTom Rider series is sat nav for motorcyclists - so I've been using the TomTom Rider V2, the model this is replacing. Naturally I expected this would be a nice improvement with some good new features. The lane navigation system shown in the main pic ...

You can get where you need to get easier with a zumo

Disadvantages: A bit on the expensive side in the satnav world

A while back I visited the world of satellite navigation, which meant that I no longer needed to carry a lot of maps around with me. I started off with a simple device which basically helped me get from A to Z without having to go through L and back. So t ...

Better the second time round

Advantages: far more securely mounted to bike, same great interface
Disadvantages: Not all bluetooth functions supported by smartphones
