I have a Clarion MAP680 navigation system, with some version of Windows CE on it. Is there any way I could hack it to get my beloved Linux on it?
It seems to have a 1 GB flash drive or something, and a SD card slot I've never used.

By the way, I have no hacking experience whatsoever.

This might be very difficult to do... do you know what CPU it uses? – Renan Apr 28 '13 at 18:40
@Renan It's a 400 MHz CPU, couldn't find out more. – MadTux Apr 28 '13 at 18:48
It's a SiRFstarIII. There's no board file in the mainline kernel, only one for the prima2, so the outlook isn't too good without doing a bit of programming yourself. – Gilles Apr 28 '13 at 20:29
@Gilles What about BSD? – MadTux Apr 29 '13 at 7:24
@MadTux I can't find anything in the NetBSD ports, so I guess you're out of luck. – Gilles Apr 29 '13 at 9:50
