I have a GPS that I use on my bike...$250 with the mounting system, total. Sure it is not in colour and does not have all the features that TomTom has but the price for the TomTom GPS is too much. Having too much info on a GPS is not good for concentrating on the road IMO.

TomTom Rider is the first ever all-in-one navigation solution designed specifically for drivers of motorcycles and scooters.
Complete with all the advanced features of TomTom’s award-winning line of TomTom GO, the new TomTom RIDER boasts detailed street level maps for the entire U.S. and provides real-time access to traffic and weather information via wireless Bluetooth technology to help riders get to their destination.
Completely plug and go, the smart and easy to use TomTom RIDER is designed to be the perfect partner for anyone looking to explore and tour the open road or the urban jungle on their motorcycle or scooter. It comes with a Integrated GPS receiver based on SiRF Star III (with 20 Channel All-in-view tracking) in a tough weather-proof case, fixes easily to any motorbike or scooter and is easily transferable from one bike to another.
TomTom RIDER features a simple, easy-to-use touch screen that has been designed to work even with gloves, as well as an anti-glare screen and integrated sun-visor that ensures the best view of the screen possible. It’s completely portable so that you can put it in your bag and take it with you when you’re not on your motorcycle or scooter. TomTom RIDER also provides up to 5 hours of constant driving, powered by its built in Lithium-ion battery.
Additionally, TomTom RIDER’s design matches the sleek look and feel of the best motorcycles and scooters in the world.
“Motorcyclists are among the fastest-growing segments and are some of the most adventurous customers for our category. Developing the first portable navigation system designed specifically for this audience is yet another example of TomTom’s cutting-edge innovation and market leadership,” said Jocelyn Vigreux, President of TomTom USA. “Automobile drivers already enjoy the extensive navigational capabilities of our portable TomTom GO and PDA-based Navigator products. The new TomTom RIDER is a natural progression for us in our award-winning line of portable, personal navigation devices.”
TomTom RIDER includes full-featured, detailed maps pre-installed on a weather protected memory card. RIDER provides turn-by-turn spoken instructions in over 30 languages. A comfortable headset that fits in a helmet works wirelessly via Bluetooth to make sure TomTom RIDER’s vocal instructions are as clear as possible. Riders can seamlessly navigate door-to-door to any location in the United States.
Riders can choose their preferred route type, for example avoiding highways, as well as the shortest, fastest, most scenic routes and more to get the most out of the motorcycle driving experience. TomTom RIDER users can also access TomTom PLUS information services (see separate press release) through a suitable GPRS Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. TomTom PLUS is a bundle of services that provides real-time information on traffic congestions and weather conditions, and offers extra downloads such as detailed city maps, additional voices, points of interest and much more.
