        Comments about StarTech.com USB to RS-232 Serial DB9 Adapter:

        This device doesn't work as claimed. An email from
        (Canada) Startech support states that this is for
        serial printer use only and will not work with
        other communication devices such as terminal adapters and RS232 controlled gear. Startech should know their products, don't you think?

                If you don't know what RS-232 is - say bye-bye. If you do, then you know that todays computers don't use the old connections. Well, Radio Shack has them and they work Great. Thanks Tandy.

                    Comments about StarTech.com USB to RS-232 Serial DB9 Adapter:

                    Originaly it appeared that the S/W was not compatible with Vista 64 bit. After contacting the vendor I was given an unverified version of the 64 bit configuration.

                    I was trying to read data from my Garmin GPS to Garmin MapSource Topo S/W. The Garmin S/W could not find the GPS unit.

                    I then tried downloading the GPS data directly into Google Earth. This worked just fine.

                    My problems appear to be associated with the Garmin MapSource S/W not the S/W provided by StarTech.

                          The adapter works fine, I use it to download information from my Garmin running watch to my laptop. The mini CD with software didn't work for me...my MacBook superdrive isn't compatible with mini CDs, and on my PC laptop I couldn't find a driver on the CD, so I ended up going to the website and downloading the driver. Works fine now.

                              works with Vista. Install driver by "Updating" and searching the CD-ROM that came with the device. Do not browse into the Win98 or 2000 folders.
