You'd be better off asking in the general sat forum or FTA forum if installing a BUD.

You can use the TomTom to discover your true long/lat just the way it is. The info screen that shows you the GPS satellites available, also shows your lat and longitude. If you're installing a motorized setup that'll at least give you an idea of which satellite is closest to you to start you off. If it's a single setup, you at least have an idea of which way you need to point. The TomTom can be used as a digital compass and nothing more.
