DIY TomTom docking station


TomToms have been getting pretty cheap. We like ‘em because they’re nice and hackable. This diy docking station was made from some etched PCBs, a bunch of male pin headers and a bit of hot glue.

    oh mah god that is so ghetto, i love it

    but Tomtoms are still WAY overpriced

    in Poland you can get Chinese knockoffs running Windows CE like Akira 3512 or Manta 020 for $90

    you can unlock them to a full windows mobile mode and install TomTom on them :)

    this it
    3.5′ touch screen
    USB/SD/MMC/MP3/MP4/AVI
    Windows CE 5.0; Procesor Centrality’s Atlas II 400MHz; SDRAM 64 MB; 128MB Flash

    all for $90 and you can unlosk it to full windows CE access
