Raspberry Pi & GPSMap 8610

Bit of an odd one.. We have a Garmin GPSMap 8610 and I have my RP4 (64bit) connected to it. The screen display works well.. now I'm trying to get the touch portion working. When I plug in the USB cable the Rpi see is and seems to install ok, but It doesn't work (not too surprising I think), any ideas on the drivers needed to get it going?

Ratsbat,

Thanks for the link.. but I didn't see the touch screen portion in that post, just HDMI which I have working no problem between the PI and GPSMap.

geoffr ... sorry, too hastily read. No, I think a mouse will be the only way to go. The Garmin is just being used as a display. One way traffic.
