After searching a while on the net I’ve understood that GpsBabel can’t read from Garmin Oregon 600 because this device does not support the Garmin serial protocol. Sigh.

But I think it’s a bad idea that GpsBabel just silently delivers an empty output file without generating any error message. This will confuse a lot of users.



gpsbabel.exe -D 4 -w -r -i garmin -f usb: -o gpx -F test.xml

Output file test.xml:
