Anyone running a Garmin
over the straight USB cable? [not 4pin barrel -> Serial->USB converter] In this case a GPSmap CSx, but I assume the same holds for other modern garmin
I assume that streams the real-time data via the Garmin binary protocol, and that gpsd on UNIX could connect to it (but I didn't try that).
Will it work? or is that usb cable only for post-trip upload/download of rte/trk/wpts? The garmin manual is pretty light on useful details.
selecting GARMIN from the gps
input drop down list doesn't seem to pick it up. The Garmin USB driver seems to be installed ok + visible in the MSWin device manager and the garmin interfaces menu page sees it connected.
It would be a lot more elegant setup if the usb-usb cable can do away with the serial
+ serial->usb + 12v plug
, and so far finding the Windows7 driver for the serial->usb adapter on hand has been a PITA.
