Is it possible that TomTom has exposed an unknown number of GPL violations? If I recall correctly, the FSF only wants compliance so have these companies that made cross-licensing deals with Microsoft made their bed and have to lie in it or is there a legal way out?

Guess they found a way through it. TomTom will remove the offending features from their software. The SFLC maintains that these software patents are not valid and haven't been proved to be any more valid through this settlement: http://www.softwarefreedom.org/news/2009/mar/30/settled-not-over-yet/
