Need MEPIS and Garmin info

#1 Postby Jerry3904 » Sat Aug 06, 2011 1:58 pm

New Wiki entry, where I hope we can collect some good stuff on using a Garmin unit with MEPIS.

http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php?title=Garmin

Have any knowledge/experience you can share? TIA

I have a 60CSX at the office and will see what is needed to get it going. I did have it working with TangoGPS at one time.

I just packaged garminplugin_0.3.3-1 for MEPIS 11 and am uploading it to the CR now.

I wasn't aware of it before.

Great! Now if we can just get someone to test it and tell us how it works...

I am not running a stock Mepis, (sid upgrade), so not sure it would install. But I will attempt it. Hopefully it will not blow away my Garmin software.

if you have a Garmin unit, can you install the plugin in a VM of M11?

That is a thought. I will need to install VirtualBox. I cannot say when I will get to it. I seem to be burning the candle at both ends these days.

FWIW....

I have an older eTrex Legend with a serial interface, and a USB-to-serial adapter with a Windows driver. MapSource works fine in a Win2K VM (VirtualBox) in M11.

Its tough when there's nothing to add to the wiki cause it just works :celebrate:
Nuvi 660NA and 1300 are reported to work with the USB cable, and mount in Device Notifier as soon as it is plugged in.

Using Synaptic with the below repository enabled

Code: Select all

http://main.mepis-deb.org/mepiscr/repo/
mepis11cr
main non-free

I see that timkb4cq uploaded it at least an hour ago, yet I cannot seem to find it in Synaptic using search
Am I missing something? :confused:

The repository doesn't update in real time. There's a daily update at about 7pm EDT (2300 UTC). Check again in about 40 minutes.
