Hi

I have done a quick search of the forums and I didn't get an answer hence I'm posting here.

I have a TomTom Rider Model 4GD00 with all the latest software updates.

I would also like to have voice commands played to a bluetooth or hardwired speaker.

Is this possible?

That would be a Rider 5.

If you can locate a suitable BT speaker that can handle the A2DP BT profile, yes, you can probably make it work. They're out there. However, finding one that can handle outdoor use and isn't too large is another story.

Thanks Canderson, Ill try the A2DP BT speaker.

Has anybody got experience of doing this? The speaker does not need to be waterproof, I am going to use my tomtom rider when driving the car.

Ah, that certainly makes a difference!

If your vehicle has an aux input jack, it might be preferable to use an adapter like this, and allow your vehicle's sound system to do the work:

or this

If you actually need a speaker, a gadget like this won't set you back much

The Rider is designed to work with Bluetooth A2DP headsets (ala Scala) when riding, so should work with any A2DP device. Haven't used any of the above, but the specs seem to line up properly.
