YLEECOYOTE replied to YLEECOYOTE's topic in GarminThat 5.60 exe file does not seem to execute on my Windows XP machine. I double-click on it and nothing happens. Is it compatible with XP? If it is not compatible with XP, could I copy the way points to my newer (Windows 7) computer using the serial cable plus a serial to USB adapter? If so, should I still be using v 5.60? If those ideas are no good, could I do it using a cable with the Garmin 4 pin connector on one and and USB on the other end? Thanks
YLEECOYOTE posted a topic in GarminHave about 60 waypoints in my original (yellow) eTrex. Want to transfer those waypoints to an eTrex Vista I bot used that came with a serial cable. My computer has a USB 3.0 port but no serial port and runs Windows 7 but I still have an old PC running XP with a serial port. Is there a version of EasyGPS that will work with both these eTrex devices (or two versions: one for each)? After I transfer the waypoints, I'd like to continue to use the Windows 7 computer with the Vista. How would i do that if not already covered by the answer to the above? Both my original eTrex and the eTrex Vista have no letter designations after their names.
