+jollybgood Posted June 18, 2002 Share Posted June 18, 2002 I had to share this. For about six months I've struggled with using my G4 Titanium Laptop with Virtual PC to upload maps to my GPSV. Using a Keyspan USB to Serial adapter I've been able to transfer waypoints and upgrade the firmware on my GPSV but uploading more than 3 megs of maps was virtually impossible. Well, I finally solved the problem. A friend told me to toss my Keyspan Adapter in the trash and buy an IOGEAR USB to Serial Adapter (model GUC232A). Finally, FINALLY I was able to upload 19 megs of maps to my GPSV using my Macintosh (took 52 minutes and 38 seconds). Works flawlessly. No lock ups or sudden loss of signals. The trick is to NOT install the Mac drivers. Rather you should install the Windows Drivers through VPC. I knew there were enough people struggling with Macs, VPC and thier GPS units that this would be welcome news. The IOGEAR adapter transferred at a hefty 115,200. I can't recommend this adapter enough. My Kepspan High Speed adapter is going up for sale. Jolly R. Blackburn http://kenzerco.com Quote Link to comment
