+BubbaSmiths Posted January 21, 2006 Share Posted January 21, 2006 Hi! I got a new laptop - a Mac. I love it! I buy Virtual PC so I can run my GSAK and Mapsource (which all works swimmingly on my WIN XP box). I load up the drivers, I load up the software. I can unzip my .gpx and look at maps and all that. But when it comes to transferring anything to or from the handheld, a Garmin GPSMap60C, forget it! It is weird: both Mapsource and GSAK say "no device connected." On that point they are firm! But the WIN XP device manager (running on my Virtual PC), sees the USB port as enabled and even calls the device "Garmin USB Device." The handheld thinks it is connected. When I unplug it, WIN XP goes beep. And when I plug it in, WIN XP goes beep again. Those annoying hardware eject/inject chimes, you know. So, what is my problem? Does anyone have success running waypoints etc to/from Virtual PC-hosted applications thru a Mac to a Garmin? Thanks! Quote Link to comment
