Sorry FREEdom is choice.  If I want to pay TomTom for the quality of their 
maps I want to be free to do so.

So chosing closed stuff is choice of the beholder.

Hence I think you should not oppose but rather NOT choose to install TomTom.  
However if your opposition to bring it onto the freerunner limits my choice I 
think you are wrong.
