Hi all not sure if this is the right place to post, so apologies if not
Does anyone know if there are plans yet for a linux distribution of tomtom home?
I found this thread from 2 years agoalthought there still seems nothing out there

We have TomTom HOME support for Windows and Mac only, so Linux is not supported at this time.
As to your question of if it will happen in the future... TomTom employees/staff cannot comment on future plans or software releases. This kind of information is sent out or announced officially by our marketing team or via a press release.
Sorry I can't help further with this. Let us know if you have any other questions.

It's more tragic than funny. Marketing would be the people to answer this, as TomTom technical people have been gagged (they clearly know the answer: TomTom will never support Linux). Marketing have probably never even heard of Linux. They certainly won't answer this thread, or respond to questions, except by using a prepared script. The idea that they might actually be interested in customer feedback is not one they understand.

If you can't help us with information on a linux based client, at least offer us the name of a contact upon whom we can vent our wroth (or at least keep the matter near the forefront of their attention span ) so that we can continue to apply pressure where it might see a decision made. Even if the decision is a "No", at least we would know that we are all flogging a dead horse and could toss out TomTom devices into the nearest blast furnace.
Please make your marketing team understand that their present course of ignoring us is something they do at the company's peril. Get them to pull their heads out of the sand and actually discuss the matter with their paying customers (ie. Us.)
As long as you and your workmates continue to insulate them from our attentions, they will continue to ignore is.
TomTom's reputation in the linux community will keep circling around the drain.

I don't understand why you can't make a native Linux version.
TomtomHome 2 has been made in XUL, the mozilla programation language and run on xulrunner witch is totally multiplateforme. On Windows and Mac OS X you need to add ext2 partition format support to access to Tomtom beacause is running on Linux. Don't need to add support this support it is native on Linux.
One person need maximum 2 or 3 weeks to port Tomtom Home 2 to Linux.
I can understand if Tomtom Home 2 have been written in a compiled language: C, C++... But now with XUL.

It is the beginning of the end of any company when they let the marketing people make the rules.
Windoze is dying on its feet, Linux is going from strength to strength. I wont be buying another GPS that cant talk to a linux system.
