README for the source code of the parts of TomTom GO software that fall under open source licenses, TomTom GO version 5.1 and 5.2 software (initially released with the GO 500 and GO 700)
This is a document describing the distribution of the source code used on the TomTom GO device with version 5.00 of the navigation software, which falls under the GNU General Public License (the GPL).
The compiler toolchain used to build all the software for the ARM Linux platform consists of a number of components:
2. The Linux Kernel
TomTom GO uses version 2.6.10 of the Linux kernel, with modifications by TomTom, which provide drivers for the specific TomTom GO hardware. Since the start of the 2.6.x kernel series, ARM Linux support has been in the main kernel source code, as released by Linus Torvalds.
The official site for the Linux kernel is:
The base version we used can be downloaded from any kernel mirror site:
The complete source code for our version with build number 904 can be found here:

3. BlueZ libraries and utilities
TomTom GO uses version 2.15 of the user-space BlueZ libraries and utilities. The kernel-space BlueZ support is the default version built into version 2.6.10 of the Linux kernel.
The official site for BlueZ is:

4. Other third party software
TomTom GO also contains some other software that is licensed under the GPL:
5. TomTom GPL software
TomTom GO also contains some applications for Bluetooth support that make use of the BlueZ libraries, and therefore are also licensed under the GPL:
