Unless there is a site that you can get bike satnavs for a good price, most I have seen are pretty much silly money.

Was looking into getting one (nothing specific) recently but until I have enough cash to buy one I will be happy enough to enjoy the ride and get lost for a few hours and ofc hope to find a petrol station somewhere :}

Not to hijack but what sites are you guys looking at?

Well FWIW I rate TomTom pretty highly - my old Rider 1 is still going strong after nearly 6 years and survived the crash which wrote off my 1200. The mount went west and the unit itself is a bit battered, true, but then, so's its owner. :rolleyes:

My Rider 2, that came with a bluetooth headset, is a very good piece of kit. Apart from the function of sat nav, I can take and make phone calls and channel my music through it. :top:

You can pick a TT Urban Rider up relatively cheap (?200-ish) and the shortest route or twisty route settings both take you to some very interesting places you probably wouldn't find on your own.

When touring in Europe or the USA I pre-plan itineraries which would be far too convaluted to follow using a map. I wouldn't tour without one now :top:

Rider V5

I took the plunge and bought the V5 when using my prev bike for work (inner-city multi-drops). Yeah, it's sound in all modes, but it was a bit minty...

Designed for using with gloves on, so it's like an old mobile phone - tapping buttons several times for the letters for postcodes. Other than that, sound.

Oh yeah, I'm new. Hi!
