PC or EasyGPs does not recognize my Garmin Etrex Vista

4 posts in this topic

I am trying to use my Garmin Etrex Vista connected to my PC.   There appears to be no selection for this device in EasyGPS.   All of the Etrex Vista have a letter behind them such as C or H.  I have tried both C and H and it doesn't work for either.

I have used this GPS on my previous computers (prior to Windows XP) and it worked OK.   It has the Garmin supplied interface cable which is a DB9 for the RS232 port.   There is no selection for this Port in EasyGPS.   I have tried a converter cable that is for going from RS232 to a USB port and that does not work either.   It does not work on my XP, Windows 7, or Windows 8.1  PCs.

HELP !

EasyGPS no longer supports Garmin eTrex receivers that use a serial port.

What was the reason for dropping the serial Garmin GPS's?

Also is there plans to re-implement this feature?

There are no plans to re-implement serial data support for old GPS receivers.
