    I am using Garmin GPS II Plus and Garmin 76,GPS Map 76, GPOS Map 76 CX
    nd GPS Map 76 CSX, canI still do a Garmin to Garmin transfer of data
    between them with the proper cable?

    You should, and the data works or not may depend on the serial.

    Another option is to use a PC and use Mapsource to move waypoints
    between Garmin GPS devices.

    Hi Peter, thanks for your post, the reason I would like to use the
    cable is to be able to transfer data in the field. I have a bunh of
    friends with Garmins and it would be nice when I run in to someone to
    be able to transfer data between units.

    A third option (again not allowing direct connection to friends'
    units) is the free USAPhotomaps. Both are easy to use and are GPS-
    friendly. If nothing else, they can be used to archive waypoints and
    you only download those of interest for your next outing, etc.

    The really old receivers could do a unit to unit transfer. The models
    you mention can't. Some of the new receivers have wireless connectivity
    and Garmin says they can do unit to unit transfer.

    I wrote Garmin about this and this was their reply: "Dear Richard
    Valcourt,


    I just spoke with my supervisor, and he confirmed that the unit to
    unit cord does not work with any of our 70's series.
    Now we know.
