TomTom wants to send you to map an uncharted island

Now this is what I call a contest. Not content to do the normal GPS giveaway, TomTom has ramped it up, with a contest to send five families or groups of friends to map a tropical island for two weeks. Their “Map Paradise Project” will create new navigable maps for Fiji, St. Lucia, Mauritius, Cape Verde, and the Seychelles. Not only will they cover the winners’ expenses, they’re going to pay each group $15,000 to boot.
