General navigational Kit / Getting the most out of my eTrex H
« on: February 02, 2014, 01:27:25 PM »
G'day all,

New to the forum and just posted in the intro section. Getting into kit, I have a couple of questions about refining my use of the eTrex H. Thus far I've only used it as an emergency back up. I usually just waypoint my starting point, plot this on my map, and then put it away. If the s**t hits the fan, I can get it out and find my way back (hopefully).

Resolved the issue I had here!

I'm an Apple Macintosh user. Have been since the get-go. Has anyone ironed out what's needed to connect the eTrex H to a Mac running OS 10.9.1? I have the Garmin cable but it ends in a female 9 pole D-Sub. Need to "convert" to USB.

Found a cable on eBay, seller named KawaMall. Anybody using it?

G'day all,

Just a few words to introduce myself. Grew up in the Australian bush, learned map reading as a teenager and school cadet. Practiced on weekends while hiking around the Dandenong Ranges east of Melbourne.
Being an avid hiker as well as a hunter I've been able to keep my skills alive and I never seem to lose my fascination with maps. Never been truly lost but back in the day before GPS I will admit to being "geographically challenged" a few times.

I never go into unfamiliar territory without a map, my compass (Suunto MC2 Global) and a Garmin eTrex H.

I divide my time between Australia and Sweden so I get to slog about in different types of terrain. Been in Sweden for a few months now for the moose and wild boar season but will soon be heading off down under.
