Yes, I would be interested in paying for car navigation software to run on
the OpenMoko.
For reference, TomTom Navigator 6 for PDAs with maps for western europe on
DVD is around EUR 110 (US $150)

TomTom Go is Linux based, perhaps you can get them to offer their product
for the OpenMoko?
I would be very interested in a solution for the OpenMoko at that price range.
