Hi everyone I just purchased a Mac Book 2.00.
Can anyone personally tell me if they have used a GPS software / receiver with a MB?

Thanks,

I know that Garmin as promised OSX support for quite a while but not much has come of it. I haven't even seen a beta. I think that pretty much goes with most GPS software. You'll have to run it in Parallels like I do.

There is RouteBuddy

Which has Garmin USB support but I think you have to use their own maps

Here's another which may have some Interest http://www.chimoosoft.com/gpsconnect.html

If you have Magellan then you are out of luck
