    Are you going to test it? I am very interested in seeing results.
    I would test a build myself but I have not got any maps.

    Um, you guys do know that this is just the GPL source code for the Linux Operating System used on the TomTom GO, and not the TomTom software itself don't you....?

    From the linked page:
    The tarball is a linux 2.4.18 kernel with ARM patches and some TomTom patches to support the TomTomGO hardware. It does not contain the navigation software. See their page on their use of GPL-licensed software.



    Another question is does it even support x86 platforms?

    I don't think the NAV software is GPL. It's probably completely proprietary and not available for download anywhere.

    It isn't, otherwise we'd all be using it! This link was posted a while ago.

    What it does mean though is that somewhere at tomtom HQ they have source code for a good GPS software that works on Linux. We just need to apply some pressure on them to persuade them to release it for Linux, not just the TomTom GO
