TomTom Rider 550
Hi there,

I've been searching the internet, unfortunately I can't find an answer anywhere. So I hope someone here can help me out.

I've got a TomTom Rider 550 which I use for my motorbike trips. Next month we're going to travel with a campervan, now I'm wondering if I can use my Rider 550 as routeplanner. It's quite a big/heavy campervan, so it's important to know that the proposed route is really suitable for the vehicle.

Let me explain exactly what my issue is:
  • I'm planning a route in MyDrive
  • I select the campervan option, fill in all characteristics like length, width and height
  • After the route in MyDrive is completed, I'm sending it to the TT Rider 550
  • The import is successful and it shows the route
This is my question: now it shows the motorcycle icon, and that's confusing me. Is the route only suitable for motorcycles, or is it also safe to use it for the campervan? Riding into the Alps with my motor is quit different from riding the same route with a campervan.

Does anyone has any experience with this? Your help is much appreciated!


Hi there I’ve just got a rider 550 & while in the MyDrive section the stop syncing message has been showing for about 30 mins. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? I have been on the Tom Tom chat section & they’re as much use as a chocolate teapot.

If you receive a synchronization stop message it is because in my opinion your GPS is not connected to the internet.
