my newest device is a Garmin Foretrex 101.
Since there's no comercial cable available to connect the Foretrex to the Palm Tungsten T3 I tried to make one by myself. I bought a 2.5mm plug and used an existing Palm cable. As I found out, the RS232 on the Palm Universal Connector is at pins 10 and 11. So I connected the pin 11 (TxD) to the leading edge of the Foretrex plug and pin 10 (RxD) to the middle contact. The GND I soldered to the Palms pins 1 and 7.
But Pathaway was not able to recognize the Garmin unit in any case. I tried Garmin-Garmin and Garmin-NMEA. As port I used Cradle(8000) since there is no RS232 option.
Does somebody has an idea what I did wrong? Was the cabeling OK? Does Pathaway support the Foretrex device at all?
