GPSr Units / Re: Garmin eTrexH legacy software

Hi Boyd. No not working and Garmin not responding positively. If I install BaseCamp then MapSource update (as on Garmin site) I gat a version of MapSource that wont recognise my eTrex H. Likely because the MapSource is installed off the install of BaseCamp. BaseCamp wont run the eTrex. Device Manager sees my eTrex.
Garmin sais now that they don't support the eTrexH I have, but my docs with it say they will for the life of the device.
Then they say that the MapSource is available etc.- but that is the update. I don't think they are really interested, paying attention or care. Their Help person has given me a mobile number that is not connected and continues to give me it despite being told of my experience. They just keep repeating the same unhelpful advice.
I have the device working well, it connects to the computer and is recognised by windows 10, my NatMaps are working fine but I cant use it because of the Garmin software does not recognising the device. You would have to recon that they would have an archival copy of the Legacy software for the eTrexH. But they do not respond to that part of the question at all. Where would be the best place to post with a chance of connecting with someone with a copy do you think ?

Another thin I have just realised, part way through for an entirely different reason, I had done a regedit to add more admin install rights. Maybe that was helpful with win 10. Anyhow it is now available. cheers

Thanks Boyd. I did all that but still nothing. Only Basecamp. So did again nothing, then again and it popped up as Mapsource installed and icon available. Recognising my device too so will grab some data tomorrow and test it all out. Thanks for your help. Cheers

Thanks Boyd.
Did all that.
Garmin sais the Basecamp wont connect via serial connector. I have converter to usb but Basecamp doesn't see my device, so I guess they are correct on that one.
I just need a copy of MapSource. Surely Garmin still have one in their archives ? Or someone out there has a copy ?
Or do you have someother workaround please ?
and thanks

I cant locate my original MapSource software for my etrex H for pc rebuild. Mapsource updates on Garmin site only work if legacy MapSource program installed. BaseMap does not work with serial devices (according to Garmin info). I love and rely on this device and wish to be able to make use of it. I am not having much luck with Garmin. Any chance someone has a copy please.
