GPSOut with Garmin 296

Recommended Posts

I have GPSOUT working fine with a Garmin 295 using a USB to serial port converter.

I just upgraded to a Garmin 296 though and I cannot get the GPS to receive data from GPSOut. The USB drivers for the GPS are loaded and my Device Manager recognizes the GPS... but what port is a USB port, i.e. what port do I configure in the GPSOUT configuration file? I turned on ports 1 and 2 in the Garmin 296 setup and matched this in the GPSOUT configuration but it does not work. Any ideas?

That is close but it applies to a Windows CE USB port... that is the basic idea though... what would the entry be in the GPSOUT configuration file to point it to a USB port?

The only alternate seems to be using a standard serial port on the 296 and a USB to serial converter on my PC.
