Gram & I have an older Legend that came with a serial cable for downloading caches. No serial connectors on computers any more... Anybody have a usb cable for this GPSr that you'd like to unload? I can find them new on eBay & Amazon, but thought I'd check here first for a better bargain!

Thanks, Cheap ole Chris & Jim

I have a Legend and it uses a standard mini-usb plug. I've picked up a number of these standard cables over the years from various "appliances". I've also bought a couple at the local dollar store for $1 each. Thinking this might be a quick score at the local dollar store for you if this is the type of cable you're looking for.

I know the Garmin OEM version of the cable comes with the noise reducer built into it, but I've never had a problem with the off the shelf usb cables.

This is an older one that does not work with the standard usb cables. It has a flat 4-contact plug about 1/2" wide with a small locator prong. The GPS works good, but we'd like to download coordinates sometimes rather than manually programming.

I think I have an extra one. You will still need a USB to 9 pin adapter. I picked one up off the internet a few years ago for just a few dollars.

Poke me in a couple days if you do not hear from me.

I have the same thing and had to pick up the serial to USB adaptor when I first got the GPS. Works just fine.

Thanks, gkrone. The interface cable you show looks like the one I have. But by the sounds of it, I think I'll try to go with the usb-serial adapter to add to my cable, rather than start over with an actual usb cable for my Legend.

I appreciate all of your comments and experiences, friends. I had to get out the old Legend we've had since starting geocaching. The last several years I've had access to a GPSr from work that has a few more features. But that is not available any more, so we move forward by going back to the beginning with technology!

cYa, Jim & Chris
