If TomTom does not use long file name support in the kernel do those patents become moot in a legal battle?
I have not used any of the recent TomTom models, however when I worked at TomTom four years ago for both reading the SD card and the internal memory for the cheaper models, long files names are not needed. The map and voice files are in the "8.3" format and as far as I know the TomTom never gives a file listing to the user.
