Garmin Communicator Plugin

#1 Post by topoguy » Sat Aug 11, 2007 7:17 pm

Does any one know more about this Garmin software?


http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator/faq.jsp

the FAQ seems to skirt the issue of what the program does :-?

what is the purpose of transferring data from a GPS device to a website?

Okay, got the page now. As GPSPowered (kelvin) implied, this "Garmin Communicator Plugin" running in IE6+/FF1.5+ should act like Mapsource for communication between PC and Garmin GPSr to transfer data such as waypoints and tracks. Good stuff. :mrgreen:
