Do you need one or have trouble with the one you have?
Best Buy sells Dynex USB PDA/Serial Adapter Cable, Model DX-UBDB9. It plugs into a USB port and provides you with a serial port. I got one for my Garmin eTrex Legend and have sucessfully transferred data from my GPSr to laptop and back using EasyGPS and GSAK.
If you have an adapter and your GPSr is not recognized . . .
1. You may have to check to see your GPSr is in the Garmin or the NMEA Serial Data Format mode and determin which mode the software you're using needs.
2. You may have a port conflict. Go into 'My Computer', 'Properties' and check properties for you adapter when it's plugged in. It will let you know if you're getting a conflict.
That being said, I still can't get my older Streets 98 Program to recognize my GPSr. That may well be because it's an older program. A co-worker has a newer Streets Program he's going to bring to work. We'll see what happens there.
