    Garmin Fortrex 101


    Hi all,

    I'm really considering getting a Garmin Fortrex 101. I have a Rino 120 that runs pretty good on Linux, but I'm thinking the Fortrex uses a USB interface, whereas my Rino uses serial.

    Any know if this guy works on Linux, or can give me any ideas/reviews/thoughts/links on it?

    The unit is available with a serial cable connection and is NMEA compliant. Using GPSman, I was able to d/l all tracks, routes and waypoints from my Rino 120 and then upload them to the Foretrex.

    Hate to sound super cool, but if the shoe fits...
