Followers 0

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone out there who could help me set up my MAC to readily communicate with my Garmin eTrex Vista CX gps unit? I have vistied the Garmin site and downloaded the Garmin communicator plug in for Mac and still am unable to download cache waypoints/locations to my GPS. Any suggestions or tips would be great as I am new to this.


Thank you

I do not have a Mac or run Vista.


Some of the more dumb things to look for;


Is the unit turned on?


Is the port enabled?


Are you using a USB cable to connect with? Did you install the drivers for the cable? I did not know my cable came with a CD with drivers, sure did work a lot better afterward! LOL :D
