"Don't would be enough of a demand" is a false argument. Maybe MS imposition after recent Patents case?
Make information open/available and the Community will provide these system compatibily without cost for TomTom.

Navman's Navdesk also doesn't run under Wine. I tried it with cxoffice (a commercialised flavour of Wine) about 18 months ago, and reported it as a failure. The reply was that it was not possible to support it, then, at least. That's why my next GPS was a TomTom :-( -- Ross

Another Linux user voicing my frustration with TomTom due to the inability to update my device via Linux. Currently the TomTom has a number advantages over navigator software on the Android phones, but as soon as other navigator software catches up, it will be bye, bye TomTom as my TomTom continues to become more out of date.

Hmmm. I actually started another thread on a similar topic, after my search for "Ubuntu" or "Linux" yielded no results, and this thread was here all the time. Not very good search results, to say the least ...
Anyway, I'm not holding my breath for TomTom Home, which I currently use for my XL devices, but surely it's easier to get MyTomTom to work with LInux, including Ubuntu, since it's browser based!
C'mon TomTom, I know you guys are probably sorting out a lot of stuff with your models right now, and I'm about 70-90% happy already with my new GO 2535M Live, but there are only two reasons that I use Windows for at present:
1) TomTom updates,
2) Canon printer management.
Everything is so much faster, including 20 second boot time on my new laptop, 50 second boot time on my oldest (ten years old) laptop, and shutdown in less than five seconds on both. Don't get me started on the security concerns ... you just never know what's going to happen if you're using airport and hotel wireless connections. None of that matters with Linux, of course.

Nearly 3000 now in the petition.
How dare they use GPL in their product and not support GPL on the desktop. Just makes them look like money grabbing scum rather than genuine members of the GPL community.

So far I've not seen anyone commenting on the fact that TomTom is written in linux! How hard can it be then to create a linux variety desktop? Chalk up yet another vote for a linux interface.
