    Garmin Etrex Vista?
    I am trying to connect my Garmin Etrex Vista GPS, the early monochrome model with the PC serial connection cable, to my shiny new Macbook Pro. I have a serial to USB adaptor, but the driver CD with it is a mini CD and I can't use it with either my Macbook or iMac 20 1/2. Is there any way that I can connect it???
    I have discovered that wine gets better with age. The older I get the more I like it !

    I'd suggest heading for the web site of the manufacturer of your USB to serial adapter to see if they have a driver for OS X.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
