Garmin with Linux

Postby kenny_lex » Sat Jan 03, 2009 8:50 pm

I has a hard time to find programs that works with my GPS (Garmin 60SCx), I has found some programs like GpsMan, GpsDrive, Viking and QLandkarte, but non of this programs works for me and they can not access my GPS via the USB.

I seek any suggestions for GPS program that I can test and any tips on how to get the USB connection to work. I want to use the program to upload/download tracks and waypoints, live tracking is a plus but not needed; but I want GUI programs and not command line programs like GpsBable.

P.S Sorrw for the bad spelling, I am a Swed.

Apart from those you mention I've found that Garmin has released the source code for at leas some of their gadgets
So if you dare compile.... (and don't forget to install build essentials first)
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
