Hey kids: check this out. So I have a GPS with only a serial port interface cable, but a laptop with no serial ports; only USB. So I went off to locate a USB-serial adapter at Radio Shack. When that wouldn't work, I searched GARMIN's site for a driver or information or anything that might guide me. I did find that the reason my software (Mapsource and Nat'l Geographic TOPO) won't look at USB ports for a device is that my versions are a little old - old in computer time, not necessarily real-life time. But I can easily download an update to the software, which I'll do tonight.
But GARMIN did email me a response to my tech question, which you can read below. There is a chance that the software update won't work - check it out.
So, I'm wondering if anyone else has had this same problem. Do any of you fall within the 20% SOL-ers? I want to see what anyone else has done to try to fix this issue, open up a little dialog on this funky subject.
