+jollybgood Posted December 12, 2005 Share Posted December 12, 2005 (edited) I haven't frequented the boards recently so maybe I missed it.... When did USB and Macs/VPC suddenly start working? I bought a Streetpilot 2720 last week. Came with a USB cable. I assumed it wouldn't work on my Mac so I borrowed my daughter's PC to update the firmware and so forth. Today I was bored and decided to hook it up to my power book via USB and turn on Virtual PC just to see what would happen. To my amazement Mapsource instantly recoginzed a 2720 was connected. I swapped waypoints back and forth, did some routes and downloaded them. Worked like a charm. Then I used Garmins' WebUpdater and via VPC and that worked too. Not sure if the fix was caused by the latest Tigers OSX upgrade or if it was on Garmin's end. Does anyone know if this new connecitivity with Macs is true with the other USB GPSs from Garmin? I'm hoping the new 60CSx will work the same way as my 2720. One can hope anyway. After years of using serial cables and USB/PDA adapters to get my GPSV and GPS 60C to talk with my Mac I'm rather stunned that I can finally do it with a simple USB cable and no fuss. Wonder of wonders. Edited December 12, 2005 by jollybgood Quote Link to comment
