I know nothing about the TomTom Rider but I’d do some research on it being able to go off-road. Many non tramping or sealed road centric GPS just get confused if you aren’t on a sealed road, including some of the car specific Garmin models.

Besides that I’d go for Garmin in NZ, not just for the tracks here but also for the weekly updated free maps from the NZ Open GPS Project.
