For those who ride new routes every day, this is as much use as......, well fill in the rest yourself. If you plan to ride anywhere past the 10km, look elsewhere. I was using it all over from Vegas to San Fran to Grand Canyon.
So I bought this device so I could keep it mounted on the bike.
A regular car GPS in a rainproof case mostly does the job, but my old GPS didn't do bluetooth, so I could see but not hear the navigation.
It's not quite as quick and smooth as on an i Phone, but it does work well once you've got it figured out.
I had been using i Phone apps for navigation, but only audio through my bluetooth helmet speakers, because I wanted to keep the phone on me, in my jacket pocket (rather than on the bike) in case of an emergency, and also I didn't want to use all my phone's battery for navigation.

Obviously the programmers at Tom Tom never travel, but live in their Mommy’s basement with 20MB download speeds. you better have a huge data plan on your phone, because Tom Tom needs to connect to the Internet to find any Points Of Interest. The trouble is, in some places they will list a road, but not give the name of the road. Tom Tom also brought me to some random spot in Kolomyya that it had listed as the centre of town. If you have trouble planning how to ride the same two points then the Rider may be for you.
The only way Tom Tom connects to the Internet is via your phone. Has done this in other places, but in Kolomyya, it was a totally random spot. It is supposed to learn where you ride and when you ride those routes. Ride 10km then spend the next 3 weeks discussing the ride. I had the US Maps installed and took it with me to Vegas.
You can also import planned GPX routes via a micro SD card or USB cable synced with a desktop computer.
