Garmin eTrex Legend Cx and APRS

Followers 2

Recommended Posts

For Christmas this year I got a Garmin eTrex Legend Cx, and the main point of it was for APRS. My parents made the choice (since I'm in Middle School), and I'm not sure they checked if it was compatible. Anyway, has anybody been able to do it? I know it doesn't have a serial port, making it challenging to do...


BTW: I forgot to mention that I've been really active Geocaching with it. It wasn't my parents intention when they first bought it, but they really support it.

the etrex actually does have a serial ouptut.... the four little brass buttons on the back, (under the rubber flap)... the cable should be available from the place you got the etrex from, or garmin or gpscity online.


i have used the etrex (basic) successfully for aprs for some years now.
