No, currently for non-Garmin mobile devices, (for this part of the region) Garmin navigation software can only be used in Windows Mobile, Symbian S60, Symbian UIQ, and Palm OS's.

Happy waiting.
I was using the N900 for a couple of months and was disappointed with the rate new apps being developed for the unit, so decided to ditched it for the Nexus One instead with android 2.2.

Guess it shouldn't be difficult for Garmin to have a version on the N900 as they do have the Garmin-Asus G60 which is running on Linux too [-o<

Models like A10 in Europe and garmin-asus phone in US are no doubt android based. However, the G60 which is available in Asian countries like Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and etc is still Linux based.

Of course, M10 and the earlier M20 are windows based.
