Thought I'd share this with other Tomtom Rider users. It's a pretty cool application I found that ties into Google Earth and your Tomtom for doing route planning - and its free. It was developed by a motorbike rider. Its called "Tyre" - (Trace Your Route Everywhere), and can be found here It requires Google Earth installed as well as the application, and is a whole lot more powerful than planning using either the GPS itself or Tomtom Home. It will work with other Tomtom models as well. Not sure whether others are already aware of this app, but thought I'd share it!
