TomTom RIDER 2nd Edition

GPS device creator TomTom this afternoon unveiled the RIDER 2nd Edition, the sequel to its popular mapping system for motorbikes. As was alluded to in a premature site posting, the revised unit has a new RAM mount that adapts to more handlebars and is more easily adjusted for a clear viewing angle. It also comes bundled with a Cardo scala-rider Bluetooth earpiece for making phone calls without the rider first removing their helmet. A new, free Buddies service also adds an element of social networking with friend tracking and notifications when fellow RIDER owners drift into range.

The second version of the RIDER will be ready first in Europe by the end of May, where it will sell for between 300 and 400 ($590 to $786) depending on the choice of region-only maps or those covering all of western Europe. A strong chance exists for a US version, but this has not been made available. [via NaviGadget]
