TomtomdvdIf you’ve always had a burning desire to watch movies on your TomTom GO GPS receiver, Makayama has a solution for you. With their Media Studio for TomTom software, you can easily transfer DVDs or other videos to your TomTom Go device. You’ll need Makayama’s software running on a Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista machine but the process appears to be fairly straightforward.

Media Studio for TomTom is priced at $32.95 and there is a free trial available. The free trial will only allow you transfer up to 3 minutes of video at a time, so choose wisely mobile grasshopper. Sounds like this is for people that aren’t directionally challenged since they’ll be using their GPS for viewing movies. Then again, if they know where they’re going, why do they have a GPS device in the first place? ;)
