more specifically: they use s3c2410 in their early devices, s3c2440 in their
later, and s3c2443 in their top-notch devices.  you can't get that much

however, their application is written for direct framebuffer access, so
that will be somewhat hard to map into our X11-based design.

Also, be aware, that anyone doing this will very likely violate their
license agreement with tomtom :)
