Test: TomTom Bandit and RIDER

IMG_5599Time to go more in-depth with the products from TomTom I’ve been hanging onto for some time now. We are talking about the TomTom Bandit action camera and the TomTom RIDER 400, their new motorcycle specific navigator. I brought them both on the amazing trip to Grisslehamn this weekend to see how they stood up against the Garmin Montana and GoPro… Fortsätt läsa Test: TomTom Bandit and RIDER

Into the wild, Nite Ryderz edition

11049601_10153079774960922_6565967703774242420_nAfter months of planning, failing to execute and planning again, we did it. We packed our gear and headed out into the unknown. And it was the kind of journey that fills the void in your soul caused by the mundane way of life for a mindless drone…  Fortsätt läsa Into the wild, Nite Ryderz edition

AFK – adventure awaits

AdventureIt’s time for my first overnight offroad motorcycle adventure. We’re talking sleeping bag, tent, fire starting tools, the whole lot. Now this only for the night so it’s more of a trial-and-error-tour to see how to pack and what to bring. I already know more or less what to bring since I’ve spent more than a few nights in the woods but I haven’t brought my stuff on a bike before… Fortsätt läsa AFK – adventure awaits

And she’s done!

11750620_10153074551565922_5241922655967020140_nIf the devil is in the details, then everything I do must appeal to the other guy because I am really thorough when it comes to details. Like for example soldering the wires to the crimps because I don’t trust them enough. That’s what I did today when I installed the electrical section of the TomTom RIDER 400 bar mount… Fortsätt läsa And she’s done!

TomTom RIDER 400: Unboxing and first look

IMG_5604I did it! After having procrastinated  for a week – I’m on vacation after all – I finally pulled through and did an unboxing video of the TomTom RIDER 400 Navigation (GPS). Or an attempt at least. Editing in iMovie isn’t exactly the most exact science. But here it is, I hope you enjoy it.  Fortsätt läsa TomTom RIDER 400: Unboxing and first look

Sneak peak: TomTom RIDER 400

IMG5813The things I do for you, readers all over the world. The kind people at TomTom Sweden, and the even kinder people at their PR-agency (Cloudberry, thank you!) sent me this to review over the summer. Tomorrow I’ll try to edit an unboxing video which will be followed by a First Look and, later on, an in-depth review. Does that sound all right to you…? Fortsätt läsa Sneak peak: TomTom RIDER 400

Waiting for the good times

1468615_10152864618160922_4369698682482131712_nIf you came here to read about the TomTom Rider 400, you’ll have to wait just a little bit longer. I still haven’t got it yet but it’s probably due any day now, and I promise I’ll make it up to you, okay? There are no riding reports either, not even anything mechanical. Bad weather combined with finishing up some stuff at work before I go on a much needed vacation hasn’t really left me that much time to do either. In the meanwhile, I’ve been occupied with watching biker build offs on YouTube. Fortsätt läsa Waiting for the good times

Another test coming up

19228_10152917210493037_3030931799266313770_nThinking of which GPS to get for your bike? So do many people and let me tell you, it’s a jungle out there. For the last couple of weeks, we’ve been using my friend’s Garmin Montana, supposedly the best GPS for the offroad adventurer there is. I can’t speak for it’s efficiency in that sense but for the onroad adventurer it does have its flaws. Like finding places for example. For that reason, I’ve decided to test another competitor… Fortsätt läsa Another test coming up

TomTom Bandit: Time lapse

19784_10152901547405922_6562901408833575357_nThis weekend  I made a short time lapse using the built-in function of taking one frame in 1080p every second. It turned out okay and naturally I wanted to show you this. Unfortunately Google, who kind of owns Internet, has decided to make the worst god damn apps to iOS, the YouTube app and the YouTube Capture apps. Since it seems nearly impossible to upload a video in true HD-quality, you’ll have to take my word for it when I say that the time lapse looks much better when played from the original file… Fortsätt läsa TomTom Bandit: Time lapse

TomTom Bandit action camera: First video

11694891_10153022198565922_831752339346630067_nI am about to hit the town with Nite Ryderz so all I have time to is to show you this video made with the “shake to edit”-function of the TomTom Bandit action camera. As far as selection goes, I made a mistake which meant that the available source material was lacking and I cut out the audio due to it being horrible and added a song instead. The bad angling is the result of the GoPro-mount lacking the sufficient strength to keep the camera upright. Oh, there are various resolutions and frame rates in this clip. More on everything tomorrow… Fortsätt läsa TomTom Bandit action camera: First video
