I'm a newbie to the list and to geocaching in general. My Canadian
friends got me hooked on it while I was on vacation there. So I
purchased a Garmin Etrex Legend unit and brought it back to Japan
where I live. Unfortunately, I learned later that the unit has
little information for Japan. I went to our local electronics shop
and purchased the cable USB-serial port cable converter.
Unfortunately, it seemed made for PCs (the diskette with the driver
was for a PC), and I couldn't get it to talk with my Mac (iBook G4).
Can anyone direct me to a cable that seems to work best with Macs?
And any ideas for getting some basic Japan info on my unit? I did
find a map that I could download, but I'm not sure if it'll work.
It's an exe file, which of course won't run on a Mac. Do I just
upload it to my Garmin unit?
Sorry to have so many questions.....I appreciate any help.
