USB GARMIN eTrex CONNECTION

2 posts in this topic

Hi All - I am hoping someone can help - PLEASE!!!

I bought a Garmin eTrex (the basic yellow one) and tired to connect it to the laptop using a Garmin serial cable and adapter, but it would not recognise the Garmin. I searched the Net and found a USB cable, but, the same problem. I have tried all the standard eTrex setting in EasyGPS but none will be recognised by the laptop.

I am doing my pilots license and bought the GPS as a belt and braces in case I get lost and can use it to get to the nearest airfield which could be a life saver, so would REALLY like help on how to solve this please.

Thanks in advance - Chris

EasyGPS no longer supports serial-based GPS receivers. If you purchase a USB version of the eTrex, EasyGPS will work with it. There is no way to use EasyGPS with your old serial-based eTrex.
