I've read a lot of posts but all about new Garmin units and windows 7. Don't laugh but I'm still using my eTrex Legend handheld and I was able to get it to connect to my Win XP Pro laptop using a USB cable with no problems.

I now have a Win7 64 bit laptop and even after reading all the posts that Win7 32/64 bit contains the USB driver I'm still not able to get it to work. I've also installed the USB from Garmin website and still no luck.

Windows does find the device but it will not install them correctly. Is there anyway to get this to work in Windows 7?

Thanks
Wade

Does your Legend have a USB connector on it or a serial connector?

If you are using a serial-to-USB converter cable, all bets are off because you are not looking for a Garmin USB driver (well, you are but that's not the end of the problem). You are needing a driver for the serial-to-USB cable that will work with Win7 64-bit.
