  1. I have just installed the NM Topo! on my iMac. I have 60CS, Keyspan serial to USB adapter. I keep getting error message saying "The COM port seems to be used by another application".

     

    My 60CS works fine with MacGPSPro, so the unit, cables and adapter are OK.

  2. Just got my 60C and am trying to connect it to a Mac G4 PowerBook with OS X thru the USB port. I tried the USB cable at first thinking that since there was a USB port it should be recognized like all other USB devices. There was no connection established with the USB cable.  I then got a serial cable and a serial to com port adapter. I also bought MacGPS Pro because it seemed to support the 60C. I still can't get it to see the GPS unit. This site also said that the 60C will not work with the USB port because there are no USB drivers for Mac OS X yet.  It seems like the combination of devices I have are not meant to work together. Anyone have any solutions or suggestions?

     

    Thanks,

    I got my 60CS week ago and it CAN connect to MacGPS through serial cable and Keyspan USB serial adapter. I have PBG4 12 inch and iMac and it works on both. :o

     

    Points to consider: You need the newest driver (download from www.keyspan.com). I don't have different type of adapter, so can't comment on it.

     

    Make sure su set the right communication protocol in your 60C. For downloading/uploading of waypoints you need GARMIN protocol (Main Menu -> Setup->Interface->Serial Data Format->GARMIN), for real time display of data from the unit you need to change it to NMEA In/NMEA Out).

     

    I played with this last time for the first time. If you have more questions, let me know.
