Santa brought me one last year.  :047:  I like it a lot, and once you get used to just an arrow pointing the way, it's easy peasy.

Route planning on the app can be a bit time consuming if you're making lots of route changes, but I like how you can customize your route if you want. And if you just want to go for a spin not using route guidance, it will keep track of your ride's route, time, and distance traveled.

My biggest concern was battery life for the phone and the unit. That has not been an issue at all. My longest ride last summer was 300 miles and about nine or ten hours, and when I got home my phone still had 65% charge, and the unit had 80%.(  iPhone 12 if you're wondering).

I really have nothing bad to say about it.

Hope this helps.  :031:

My son has recently fitted one and likes it a lot - for the route planning I usually build them and send him the GPX file which he uploads.

I'm using Tyre - https://www.janboersma.nl/gett/index_.php - at the moment but there are plenty of options out there
TDM 900 (Commuting duties) and a 2018 Tiger Sport.  Orange Tiger 1050  - gone but not forgotten.........also in the past a 900 Sprint and 955 Tiger. Just added an XJR1300 to the stable............

+1 for Tyre, I've been using it for years (15?).  Really easy to use.
