It's the Tom Tom Vio. Anyone have any experience with one? https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/sat-nav/scooter-sat-nav/



I'm not even sure if it's available in the USA :roll:

Okay so it seems that the Modern Vespa forum has a running thread on this New and awaited Tom Tom Vio. A few members across the pond have received their's and have given their comments and reviews. They've included a few pics too :P
http://modernvespa.com/forum/topic149477.3

Surprise! Not available in the USA yet but, I'm getting the idea that Tom Tom is setting up their USA maps and will be selling this unit to us soon (maybe that's just wishful thinking?) :D Dunno.

Here's a most recent link a Vespa member shared: https://www.tomtom.com/en_us/drive/scooter

I'm going to tailgate their running thread for awhile. 8) Cheerio

Nice , but why not use your phone in a holder. Might be good to use in the rain however, keep the phone dry.. 149 .00 ??

one issue i have with this sat nav is that it relies on being connected to your phone. Without your phone it doesn't work. Would have been alot better if it was a proper stand alone device

I don't get it. Why not just buy a real GPS Unit? Even TomTom builds those, and you don't have to connect your phone. If you tried to answer your phone while riding, you probably would not hear each other anyway. Worry about the phone once you have pulled over somewhere, or once you stop for a break.

Get one of those Vortex nav devices Larry Crowne recommended to his professor for her car. :ugeek:
