TomTom Rider GPS 2013 Edition

There have been a lot of rumors lately about TomTom and their new TomTom Rider GPS. As we all remember the first TomTom Rider GPS was a failure. However, TomTom is promising a new and improved TomTom Rider in 2013. They have decided to try their luck again with the same name for the GPS. If you had the old version of TomTom Rider I suggest taking a look at the new version and checking the specifications, because it is packed with lots of features that the old version was lacking. Motorcycle communities around the world, have supported TomTom in this development, and helped TomTom build the next TomTom Rider. TomTom asked, and gathered information from motorcycle forums, and biker communities to improve their new TomTom Rider.

The improved charging dock turns the device on and off with the ignition. TomTom added a improved display for better clicking and visibility. With that they have thought of adding friendly touch option. What it means that you are able to touch the screen without taking your motorcycle gloves off.
