For windows 7 and 8 I can help were these settings are, just tell me if you can not find it.

Modernizing your Garmin serial interface

Well, it should indeed — just ignore my previous post in this thread: After installing all the relevant software, I connected the eTrex. Presumably these must be set according to the default “expectations” of the serial port on the eTrex H.

Thanks Lyle, Ivo and boogyman. Ivo, In line with your comments, I downloaded both Mapsource and Basecamp. I have not used this configuration before, but looking at the Garmin webpage about the Communicator Pluginfollowing catches my attention: After installing it, I received the following confirmation on the Garmin web page suggesting the installation was successful: After going through the welcome responses to this last night, I decided to uninstall the whole shooting match, and start from scratch.

Garmin eTrex H – hey presto

Once again, the eTrex successfully communicated with Google Earth.

I continued through the list of checks: The USB to Com converter does what is does, it converts the type of connection to the PC, actuall that part of hardware seems to work fine. What I understand is that the operating system does recognize the etrex to be connected, as a USB eerial


I think it can be concluded that the problem is originating from my own PC at home. Question whether the garmin software does detect your device or not, at all. Also the communication to gqrmin etrex seems to work fine eetrex the updater, which is asking different functionality then google earth or other appsat least it is recognized also proven by installing on other pc’s. My PC is a 64 bit and my eTrex connects fine Silkylemon.

Garmin PC Interface Cable – Rs232 Serial Port Connector-etrex H eTrex Legend

Before removing this, I rebooted the PC and reconnected the receiver. Can anybody suggest a fix?

Connection to Google Earth was flawless.
