Hi all,

Am returning to a motorbike for commuting and fun after many years. Have a Garmin I3 for the car which i am well pleased with. However this is not suitable for using on the bike so i am after some advice on what would be a good option to consider. Tom Tom and Garmin seem to be the two main players in the bike field but neither of their units are very cheap. All advice and guidance great appreciated. Rob

Another device to add to the shortlist is the Becker Crocodile which is designed for bike use but its considerably cheaper than the TT or Garmin bike devices, a quick search found This web page, but there will be plenty of others, read some reviews on it if you can find them - Mike

I have a Garmin in the Car but following lots of good reviews I went for the Tom Tom Rider 2 for the bike. Brilliant cant recommend it enough and gives much better directions than the Garmin. Its also cheaper and comes with the headset. I got it for a good price from Amazon. Make sure you do not buy the original Rider by mistake, they had lots of problems that the 2 corrected them. Best thing I have put on the bike and I think makes riding even more enjoyable.

Can you install the speed camera database into the Becker Crocodile?
