Linking Garmin GPSMAP 278 to a Laptop - problems
Has anybody got experiance of running a Garmin GPSMAP 278 (or variant) to a Laptop using a USB cable for Memory Map software to provide a real time GPS track? My laptop runs Memory Map, and presently is not seeing the GPS all the time. It is becoming a pain! (I had a Garmin GPS 60 previously and this worked just fine)
If I start the computer and Memory Map first, and once these are running, then turn on the Garmin GPS then Memory Map is able to see the GPS and provide a constant position marker.
However if the Garmin starts first then Memory Map doesn't see the GPS, or gives a error message of "Garmin does not support D800 protocol".
I have loaded the USB drivers provided, but without sucess.
