Not only car or truck drivers need navigation devices, bikers may also want one. Here comes TomTom’s new Rider, a portable navigation device built especially for bikers, allowing users to choose the way they want to ride. The all-weather device include a range of biker-friendly features.
Not only provides the fastest route, the Rider also gives bikers the ability to choose most scenic or their own personalized route, and the Windings Roads allows you to select routes with the most bends for a more exciting ride.

The device meets IPX7 rating to protect against any wet-weather conditions and it comes with RAM mounting hardware to fit most bikes and charging bike mount with battery cable.
