Question about Garmin eTrex Legend GPS Receiver
I have a newer PC that does not have a physical serial port. According to Garmin, a serial to USB adapter can be used. I have added one and assigned COM2 using standard serial settings but Web Updater not MAP SOURCE will detect the GPS. I have verified that the COM PORT is working properly and have also verified that GARMIN is selected on the interface screen. Any suggestions?
Change the interface setting to NMEA Out and see if that helps. That is what I did on my Legend, bought in 2003. It still crashes the computer every so often, however, and I haven't figured out why.
