Tomtom - the hardware units - run on comparable hardware to the Neo.
Arm under linux.
It's not completely impossible that it could be convinced in software to 
run a copy of the hardwares software.

The UI is broadly compatible - screen of a sort-of-similar size to the 
minimal one, and touchscreen.

The mobile phone one costs $99.
It's not eventually that unrealistic to expect that FIC could buy at 
half this, and sell to end users installed on shipped phones at $75 say.

Which is quite reasonable.
