The e-mail address confirmation email came through without the links for the confirmation. "Special:ConfirmEmail/(UID)" instead of "http://www.opentom.org/Special:ConfirmEmail/(UID)"
(I'm wondering if this it intentional to keep anyone who can't figure it out from editing. If so, maybe someone should delete this) --Peq 07:16, 14 July 2011 (CEST)
Removing stuff from Main_page
Today Bello removed my Stuff from the mainpage.......
21:10, 10 February 2009 Bello (Talk | contribs) (Commercial software links removed from section - →Product Family - (the links do not belong here, this is a hardware related section)))
"this is a hardware related section" ????
TomTom ist Hardware , i agree
Height is software!
TomTom Console is software!
TTTracklog is software!
TTslideshow is software!
And the two links i made (See History) is Software too.
iTomtools is shareware, (http://www.tomtomheaven.com) the autor ask for 5 Euro.....
Mobilnova Media Center for TomTom (http://www.mobilnova.com/MobilNova/en/FrontPage.php) is Comercial i agree, but a good Produkt
But i found ~ 30 links to TomTom.com. Did you agree with me TomTom ist comercial?
My Idee is, make on the main page a change to 2 sektion one to hardware an one to software
Main Page |---------> Hardware | |---------> Software ---------> Projects | |--------> Freeware / Shareware | |--------> Comercial Software
Put please don't remove my Work :(
I don't make this kind of major change to the mainpage without permission, i like to make a discussion with you and the team. I want your suggestions and opinions about this.
Sorry about my english spellig, i am a german.
Best Regards Frank
Hey, this is a wiki: do whatever you think make sense. I myself thouht, that software does not belong to "product family". Thats all. All your work is still in the page history. Nothing to worry about. RELAX! A good place for your links would be at the "Community portal" page. Please do not misuse this wiki as a pure link collection. The pages in opentom wiki should contain real content you can (hardly) find anywhere else. If your software has its master-homepage outside of opentom, a simple link should do. No need to create a dummy-page, which only purpose is to make readers klick on the link. --Bello 12:50, 11 February 2009 (CET)
is it possible to get the sources you are running on the OpenTom? Im interested since Im also working with the S3C2410?
I guess your are an opensource team, aren't you!?
Hello Together! I'm activ in the Openstreetmap Projekt, and I think our projekts are related so near together that we can work together! My Idea is to run Openstreetmaps on the Tomtoms and edit them when they are not correct or detailed. It would be the Perfect Package, an Openfirmware on a Navigation Unit with Open Maps like Openstreetmap! All about the Project at http://www.openstreetmap.org
What you are thinking?
Hallo zusammen! Ich bin aktiv bei dem Openstreetmapprojekt und denke, unsere Projekte sind so verwandt, dass wir zusammen arbeiten sollten! Mich beschäftigt die Idee, auf dem Gerät unsere Karten laufen zu lassen. Das, was Tomtom mit Mapshare macht, war schon vor Jahren meine Idee, und jetzt könnte man mit dem Openstreetmapprojekt da mitarbeiten, ebenso wie die Karten auf dem Gerät sehr gut untergebracht wären, da sie wie die übrige Software frei wären. Genau wie bei der proprietären Lösung sollten fehlende oder geänderte Straßen oder Poi's mit einem Dialog geändert oder hinzugefügt werden. Alles zu dem Thema unter http://www.openstreetmap.org
Was meint Ihr?
Ist das machbar und in eurem Sinne?
Iam working on a peace of software (ttpixelmap) which does something like this. But it is only based on bitmaps! TomTom Open PixelMap uses the original 256-color tiles of Openstreetmaps. So, you have download the tiles which a small shellscript first and transfer it to your tomtom. Of course its free software and als graphic stuff is using libgd which I have crosscompiled for tomtom with support for jpg,png and truetype-stuff.

Somebody know the fact that the TomTom device SDK has been discontinued on February 19th. This is the message that we received fron tomtom when we discover the sdk' missing in the official web tomtom, the question is why and whic future about develpments? Maurizio vellano
Date 31/03/2009: I see the page for the development kit moved to:  (I was thinking about putting a compiler on the tomtom itself. Stage1 is the compilation with the cross compiler, stage2 is compilation on the tomtom itself. I've been compiling gcc and stuff around 1995 with netbsd ;-) Of course a keyboard connected to the Tomtom would be nice, but I still need a set of USB plugs, so that I can add power and keyboard/other stuff. I suppose that should be possible?? Marc C
Tomtom Win CE???
Actually it looks like something is going on. First thing, last December rumours were heard about Microsoft buying Tomtom that in turn led to TT shares price rise. Next 19 Feb 2007 TTGo SDK removed. And finaly TT lanched TT Go 710 in Taiwan based on Windows CE. Check out link: http://taiwan.cnet.com/cnetlife/reviews/0,2000080353,20030687,00.htm Also check www.tomtom.com.tw you will find an update programm called 710install.exe Pilotcom OZi
- While not being able to read Taiwanese myself, my guess is that the reference to WinCE in relation to the picture of the TomTom 710 unit is most likely a mistake. While TomTom do release a version of Navigator for WinCE/Mobile devices (for example the new iPaqs), I find it hard to believe that they would be deviating from the Linux OS currently on the rest of the 710's in the world --Paulw 15:46, 19 June 2007 (CEST)
- Note: The rumors cannot be true for all Tomtom Go 710 devices. At least I do have one running Linux, and I purchased that in February 2007. Hiran
- InstallTomTomHome.exe is a Windows programme, which can be autorun if you connect your (Linux based) TomTom to a computer running Windows. The programme does exactly what it's name says: it starts the installation of TomTom Home (2) on the Windows computer (Mac users can directly download TomTom Home from the TomTom web page. wolf
Since opentom.org is somehow affiliated with maintech.de and maintech claims on their website that they are hired by tomtom to help with linux drivers and stuff i guess that they should have a little more insight on this issue... Can you shed some light on the retreat of the SDK? I would love to see tomtom opening up the existing SDK under an OS Slicense (GPL!?!) instead of throwing it into the dustbin so that the community can continue to produce add-ons. After all, the (relative) openness of the TT was the reason I bought this product.
ONE v3 Localized (512mb flash)
Anyone have an idea how I could modify my ONE for more memory? It is rather limiting only to have 512mb of space and no SD card reader. Also if anyone needs the ttsystem from the ONE, let me know.
Has anyone already opened the case? Can we get a photograph of the inside? Maybe a SDcard is directly soldered to the PCB and one could change it. --Bello 11:32, 4 January 2008 (CET)
ONE v3 USB
I just got a ONE v3 for xmas. yay. From reading previous articles looks like the USB was not functional with those units. Since now it is functional I wonder, from a hardware standpoint, if it is possible to transfer GPS coordinates from TOMTOM to the PC as they arrive to TOMTOM. Of course the kernel will have to be recompiled, but my question is, does this USB port allow this. I am hardware challanged... An explanation would be great of how this works.
The same thing is also passing through my mind, but in a different way. Can the tomtom USB be used both as a SD card while there is a console, so that you can use the GPS logger (tomtom console) and download the data from the internal memory at the same time? In this way, all I need to do is create a program that catches the data from the tomtom at regular intervals, so I can re-use them for my program.
Hi I'm looking for a marine application to run on my tomtom. Are you aware of any such application? If not what would be required to load different map data? Many thanks
date 31/3/2009 Could it be you're looking for digital elevation models?? See eg SRTM3 on:  What do you mean with marine apps?? I know they have some kind of image format there that is used by police/army. I do not know if you would find a package on a huge list like 
Delete System (bootloader)
Hi to all. I wanted to ask you how you can join the Internal Flash Memory of TomTom GO 520, to downgrade the File System (bootloader). How well you know you can TomTom in the Processed Bootloader (system), but not Downgrade, to re-enter a previous system. The TomTom make available all sources she used, which created the O.S. Device.
How can then remove the system and re-insert preview, perhaps with the excellent TTCONSOLE ?
Thanks to all
New mediacenter: TomPlayer
Hi to all... In the web there is a new and very good player for TOMTOM. Its name is TomPlayer. You can see project details and download here: www.tomplayer.net. It is completely free unlike Mobilnova. (If the previous link doesn't work, try to search it in SourceForge.net.) I'd like to add this new player in the http://www.opentom.org/Media_Center page. Is it a good idea?
Yes, but we have this link already in the community portal. But add it anyway, why not? Dont ask, simply do it-.
Other cross compile environment.
For a complete own linux on the Tomtom.
Also Debian is in it ...[ http://www.debian.org/ports/arm/]
Ethernet over USB
I have such a device: 3com USB to inernet adapter. It should be possible to add the drivers to the kernel sources (from Tomtom.com).
See here for some links to the device. 
It works great on ubuntu: you disconnect the ethernet cable, plug in the usb to eth, and whoops, your network switches. The TT USB port would become a network interface... (once it is there, we would be able to login etc... even run a XDMP session ;-)
TomTom For Race/Track Data Logging
I was looking at getting a GPS based logger for track days and race days which I go on most weekends... Now I have a few TomTom's sat in the house, and noticed some people are using PDA's to log their track times, and lap data (fast points, slow points, corner speeds...)
Now as TomTom uses Linux, im sure its possible for someone to code such a program to run on the TomTom and allow people to download the logged information from the TomTom to their computer to view lap times and the corners and things like that!
I searched all over the net, and have not found anything similar (well appart from Event Logger, but its not really the same thing as what im talking about)
Anyone think they can code this?
In fact, its like the DriftBox, so it would need something like
- Lap Timer (will log posisions from the first lap, then once it goes past the start point again, it will start timeing, and then stop/start when it reaches the end/start again logging the lap times)
- Performace Meter - Log the slowest speed, fastest speed, distance
- Data Logger - Graphs of the track, showing the different laps so the user can compare the lap times, speeds... to see where their going wrong/right..
More information here (navigation bar along the top for the different features): http://www.driftbox.com/drift.html
I discovered opencpn - an opensource marine chartplotter navigation software - see here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/opencpn/ I played with the Linux and windows versions and it is really nice. It can use vectorial maps you can download for free from NOAA or your own scanned papermaps. I wonder if a more knowledgeable contributor can port it to Tom Tom tough. It will be a nice addition to the "repository"
Tomtom Freisprechen über Frontlautsprecher
Mit den bei ge-tectronic erhältlichen Geräten(z.Bsp. flexmute2) werden die Navi-Ansagen des Tomtoms bei vorderer Radiostummschaltung über die Frontlautsprecher widergegeben, im Fond läuft dabei weiter Radio. Die Navi-Ansagen werden über den Kopfhörerausgang ausgegeben. Beim Freisprechen mit via Bluetooth verbundenem Handy wäre es toll, die Stimme des Gesprächspartners analog Navi-Ansagen hören zu können - geht aber nicht. Der Ausgang über die Kopfhörerbuchse ist gesperrt und auch der Mikro-Eingang. Dieses betrifft alle Tomtoms. Ich könnte mir vorstellen, dass es softwaretechnisch möglich ist, den Ton des Gesprächspartners über den Kopfhörerausgang auszugeben und auch den externen Mikroeingang dabei zu entsperren. Meine Kenntnisse zur Realisierung reichen nicht aus; ist jemand weiteres daran interessiert, der weiß, was zu tun ist? Was kann ich dabei machen?
