No. How do I do that?
I just now installed wine. Now, the Tomtom application is a little tool
that sits in Windows toolbar and when it detects the device connected to
a USB port, it opens a browser and goes to Tomtom's update web page.

I would rather not do that. My last resort is to use my work laptop
(Windows 7) to do this. Besides, I am trying to get this done without
having to reboot my Debian machine.
