There is now a Linux®️ version of TomTom Sports Connect. It has been tested on Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04. I just published the FAQ with a download link:

Really pleased to see Sports Connect on Linux. I was lucky it installed really easily on my desktop PC running Ubuntu 17.04.
Getting it working on my laptop was a little more difficult as Sports Connect depends on an old version of a library that is not part of Ubuntu 17.04
The following commands run before installing Sports Connect got things going:
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/215074266/libgstreamer0.10-0_0.10.36-1.5ubuntu1_amd64.deb
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/185267586/gstreamer0.10-plugins-base_0.10.36-2_amd64.deb
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/185267581/libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0_0.10.36-2_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libgstreamer0.10-0_0.10.36-1.5ubuntu1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0_0.10.36-2_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i gstreamer0.10-plugins-base_0.10.36-2_amd64.deb
works! TNX FYI TomTom Sports Connect for Linux works on Ubuntu 17.10
Hello, thank you it works great under mint 18. Would it be possible to build an eopkg for Solus distribution ? Solus is growing with many switchers from ubuntu.

Here is the package request form of Solus

Or at least can we get sources to build it ?

Thank you 🙂
