Hello,

Sorry if this was discussed before but I could not find anything.

How do I install TomTom Navigator on Garmin Nuvi 300? Is it possible at all?

Thanks.

It is not possible, TomTom uses Linux for the PNA or Windows Mobile for PPC, if you want a TomTom go and purchase one it will be easier, or stick with the Garmin - Mike

Thanks Mike, but what does Garmin Nuvi 300 use as OS?

I know TomTom Navigator can be installed on Windows CE and Windows Mobiles and wondering if Nuvi based on windows.

Iliko, why would you even want to do this? Even if you could conceivably install it I would imagine the performance and inherent stability of the hybrid system would be very suboptimal indeed!

Just was wondering if it is possible or not before buying a GPS device.

So you haven't bought a gps yet but you're thinking of buying a garmin to hack tomtom onto? Doesn't common sense say that you should just buy a Tomtom?

Yes common sense says that, but I had a gift voucher for comet which did not have Tomtom.
