Please see the OpenTom project for TomTom GO navigation systems. TomTom has been very helpful in releasing all kernel code under GPL (there even is 100% fre SD-Card support). They even released pinouts of the connectors, etc.
Maybe also of interest, my newest "locked down" linux based toy is a Motorola A780 cellphone (quad-band, with GPS). It runs a heavily modified 2.4.20 kernel with glibc(!) and qtEmbedded on top. There's already a port of two different gameboy emulators and a console program available from the folks at motofans.
The list is neverending, I'm running into tons of more-or-less open devices during my gpl-violations.org... I'm also intending to put a "www.gpl-devices.org" webpage online, but hampered by lack of time :(
