I just connected my TomTom XL IQ Routes. Seen like a mass storage. How

Again, the kernel is working here, you just need to copy the proper
files to the device. I do that all the time with my Garmin device.


I also have a Garmin Nuvi, and I would love to be able to update it from
Linux. Could you please document the steps you take to update it (or
point to an existing doc) ?

I do not know, sorry, I have a different model and haven't updated it in
years, only the maps and cache data which works just fine from Linux.

I couldn't even register it on Garmin website, let alone download the
map updates, as they require you to install some ActiveX in your browser
to identify the device. Not an option, as I don't have Windows.

Odd, that means they are cutting out the os-x users as well? I find
that a bit hard to believe, but oh well.

Garmin also is using Linux internally in their newer devices, so I
imagine there are ways to update the devices as that is what their
engineers use, it might not just be all that public.

good luck,
