EDIT 20070502 - working on Angstrom in chroot without patching kernel, package coming sometime.

---

http://www.tomtom.com/page.php?Page=gpl

my wife bought me a TomTom GO 300, and I discovered that it runs linux when I, naturally, googled to see what hacks had been done. I was quite surprised to find it ran linux.

interestingly, TT originally used 2.4.18 but now 2.6.10.

they provide useful downloads and all the patches for the kernel, so those with a particular predilection for low-level hackery might find that page interesting or useful.... especially if it'd be possible to use TT's bluetooth hands-free system.

all we need now is to hack a GPS receiver into our Zauruses along with wifi and bluetooth, and we've got it made!

oh yeah, there's an OpenTom project too:
