I have a Linux computer. Must I buy a Windows computer before I can upload a map for my TomTom?

    Hi, with a WiFi model, you don't need to have a computer to make upgrade!

    Unfortunately it is not a wifi model.

    Have you tried using the 'wine' for Linux?

    I tried to install TT-connect in Wine yesterday.
    I was hopefull, because it looked like it was going to work.

    An desktop icon was made but in the end the install failed.

    Why do people always choose to install windows in a virtualbox or Wine in order to try to get programs to run on linux.

    Did anyone try to go for a MacOS in a virtualbox on Linux and see where that ended up?

    Can this make TT-connect run?

    macOS only runs on apple hardware. Most certainly not in a VM on just any hardware.
