    I'm a complete novice with GPS units so don't laugh at some of my questions, I have a garmin 62s that I use with montana maps micro sd, my question is can I use that micro sd chip in the Tom Tom that i can mount on my wind shield or dash? I would love to have the bigger monitor screen to watch as we drive, or is there a monitor screen only that I can patch to from my 62s that will go on my dash, I don't want one that goes into my dash

    The maps from your Garmin 62s won't work in a TomTom as they are, you may find some links on the net for converting Garmin POIs to TomTom POIs (Points Of Interest), but this is not the same as converting maps, I don't think there is anything available to do this conversion. Unfortunately it's bad news on an external (larger) display for the 62s also, sorry, not, possible

    May i know something about the Tom Tom? What are the specifications of this device?
    Also in which field this device has the most applications?
    Is it compatible with all the main development boards?

    There isn't just one TomTom, there are a range of them, unlike some other makers such as Garmin, Magellan etc, TomTom tend to specialise in vehicle mounted GPS devices commonly called Sat-Navs, used for navigating in a car, truck, motor cycle etc, using built-in maps of public roads. They can also be used for other GPS related activities such as Walking, geocaching etc. but this is not their primary use. TomToms don't easily lend themselves to software modification / home-brew hacking as far as I'm aware
