Re: Garmin GPS on USB port
I got it working! For those who may have the same problem, the solution is pretty simple. I simply changed for another adapter. At first I used an adapter identified as HL-340. I tried an adapter from Belkin and it worked like a charm. I did not need to load the module pl2303 only the module garmin_gps is enough.
Thanks to everybody who tried to find a solution.

I try to communicate with my GPS via a USB port but without success. I used to do it with a serial connection without problem. Eventually, I will have to plug my GPS on a laptop with USB port only so I have to find a solution. According to a few things read on the web I have to load the garmin_gps module. I did it with succes but the documentation found said to use /dev/ttyUSB? which device I don't have. Maybe I still have a few things to understand about the USB devices and udev!
I would like to know if someone have been able to communicate with a Garmin GPS via a USB port and how you did it. Or maybe someone with a good understanding of USB and udev could help me understand what is going on and what I should do to make it work.
Thanks for any help.
