I can say for 100% positive. But off the top of my head I can't think of any reason why not. They should use the same connector and you are only making connection on three wires.

For those of you with Garmins, and a little ability with a soldering iron, check out www.pfranc.com for Almost free connectors.

 

For the ETrex, use a serial mouse cord from a dead mouse - (9pin), cut it off the mouse at the mouse end) and then wire the cord to a connector from pfranc.com

 

I did both mine, and my buddie's for 10 bucks CDN.
