GeoAgro GIS integrates GPS Babel tools, an open source GIS translator. Thus, GeoAgro GIS will support the same GPS models supported by GPS Babel - for more information visit: http://www.gpsbabel.org/


GPS models with full support (navigation and GPS points download)

All GPS devices using the NMEA GPS Protocol, are fully supported by GeoAgro GIS. 

This is a list of GPS models Garmin USB supported by GeoAgro GIS:

Astro Forerunner 205 GPSMAP 60CSx StreetPilot 2650
Edge 205 Forerunner 301 GPSMAP 60Cx StreetPilot 2720
Edge 305 Forerunner 305 GPSMAP 76C StreetPilot 2730
eTrex Legend C Foretrex 201 GPSMAP 76CS StreetPilot 2820
eTrex Legend Cx Foretrex 301 GPSMAP 76CSX StreetPilot 7200
eTrex Legend H GPS 18[1] GPSMAP 76Cx StreetPilot 7500
eTrex Legend HCx GPSMAP 195 GPSMAP 96 StreetPilot c310
eTrex Summit Cx GPSMAP 276C GPSMAP 96C StreetPilot c320
eTrex Summit HC GPSMAP 295 Quest StreetPilot c330
eTrex Venture C GPSMAP 296C Quest II StreetPilot c340
eTrex Venture Cx GPSMAP 378 Rhino 520 StreetPilot i2
eTrex Venture HC GPSMAP 396 Rhino 530 StreetPilot i3
eTrex Vista C GPSMAP 478 Rhino 520 HCx StreetPilot i5
eTrex Vista Cx GPSMAP 496 Rhino 530 HCx
eTrex Vista H GPSMAP 60C StreetPilot 2610
eTrex Vista HCx GPSMAP 60CS StreetPilot 2620


In addition to these devices, most serial Garmin GPS receivers are supported, including:

eMap eTrex H GPS 12 Rhino 110
eTrex Camo Forerunner 201 GPS Rhino 120
eTrex Legend Foretrex 201 GPS III Rhino 130
eTrex Summit Geko 201 GPS III+ StreetPilot III
eTrex Venture Geko 301 GPS II StreetPilot III+
eTrex Vista GPS 12CX GPS II+
eTrex (Basic Yellow) GPS 12Map GPS V


Note Note: these GPS devices communicated through serial ports will require to have their corresponding drivers installed in your computer, to work properly

If you have another GPS model, you may check if it's compatible by sending an email to [email protected]


GPS models with full support (only GPS points download)

The following Garmin GPS receivers are supported, but they do not support Garmin communication protocol and don't work with the garmin option. To use these receivers, read or write GPX files from the mass storage device as mounted on your computer.



It's important to note that GPS Garmin NUVI, smartphones GPS, or PDAs that do not use the NMEA communication protocol are not compatible with GeoAgro GIS. For more information please review  Why can't I connect my Garmin Nuvi or my gps-enabled mobile phone to GeoAgro GIS?


As a workaround, if your model is not compatible with GeoAgro GIS, you can try downloading your points, by following these steps: Using GPS devices not compatible with NMEA


Also, the next release of GeoAgro GIS will expand the nr. of compatible GPS models by integrating GPS Babel, a  free software for GPS download and data transfer. For more information, please visit this list of GPS models compatible with next release of GeoAgro GIS.
