Electronic charting without a serial port...

I just did the same this weekend. The one thing you need to do is to change the comport on you program.

Just to update anyone who is interested, I got tired of resetting the gps - computer port settings everytime I restarted the garmin software so I returned the "Garmin" usb - 9 pin adapter and picked up a card and added a 9 pin port to my computer. Now it works fine and only cost 35 bucks!
