My recommendation would be to get a waterproof mobile holder and use Google Maps which will do a much better job.

Hey guys! I own a 2021 Interceptor and i was thinking to fit a tripper system on the bike. To those who use it, does it help in everyday commute and long distance touring? Are there any downsides faced while using it?
Here’s what BHPian WhiskeyTangoFox had to say on the matter:
I haven’t used it myself as RE discontinued it when I bought my bike but a couple of my friends who have it on their Himalayans have said its average at best. The Pros and Cons according to them are as follows:
- Integrated Design
- Clear Visibility in all weather conditions
- Very Basic Navigation Capability, Only shows directions to turn etc and does not have real time movement like maps on the phone
- Uses Bluetooth so eats up your phone’s battery + causes the phone to heat up abnormally
- Uses the Royal Enfield App which is laggy and has a lot of bugs
- Costs Rs 5000 which is honestly way too much for its functionality
Hence both of their recommendations and mine as well would be to get a waterproof mobile holder and use Google Maps which will do a much better job. Here are a couple of links to them below:

Here’s what BHPian NTab had to say on the matter:
I have tripper navigation, and it is just a waste of money. As @whiskeytangofox mentioned, it’s better to have a good mobile mount.
Here’s what BHPian rahulcmoulee had to say on the matter:
Having owned a Meteor 350 with the tripper for 10 months now, I would suggest getting a good mobile mount instead. The tripper is definitely useful but it drains the battery of your phone pretty rapidly. Also it shows only the distance and direction metrics. ETA and traffic metrics would’ve made it better. You would be better off using Google Maps on your phone.
