No download from garmin Vista to OSX

brissot
Hello,

My configuration is
AppleG5 - OsX 10.3.8
USB serial adapter ATEN UC232 (prolific chip)
Garmin Etrex Vista (notC)

It works well for up and download with
MacGpsPro
Mapsource (using VPC7 and Win98)

OK for download from Vista to computer with "FlightTrack"

It does not work for "IGNrando" trough VPC7 and Win98.

I just tried to use the function "use GPS receiver for input" of MacGpsBabel
v1.2.5 and am answered "sorry, download from Garmin GPS receiver failed"

Any help available ?

By the way, the IGNrando format is not in the list of MacGPSBabel formats -
I know it is the "french exception"  :-)
This format is

            <ETAPE>
                        <POSITION>45.228718,5.690939</POSITION>
                        <ALTITUDE>212.287994</ALTITUDE>
            </ETAPE>

And I convert it manually into gpx format using a text editor to get

      <trkpt lat="45.228718" lon="5.690939">
       <ele>212.287994</ele>
      </trkpt>
Can this conversion be added to MacGpsBabel ?

Thanks by advance

L.Brissot

sorry, this is not a topic for me. Please wait for another answer.

does the IGNrando file format only consists of such items <ETAPE>...</ETAPE> ?
If not plaese send me a sample file (waypoints, routes and tracks if
possible).

It's look like a simple itegration in gpsbabel. :-)

O.K.
