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/. This article transcripts the GPS models listed in: http://www.gpsbabel.org/htmldoc-development/fmt_garmin.html, where you'll find the latest information on supported models.


GPS models with full support (real time navigation and GPS features upload/download)

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

Full support means that the GPS device can be used for real-time navigation in GeoAgro GIS, or for uploading/downloading features, as detailed in the GPS toolbar.


The following 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 not supported (allow for GPS features upload/download through third party programs)

GPS Garmin NUVI, smartphones with GPS, Palm Devices (PDAs), and other GPS devices that do not use the NMEA communication protocol are not fully compatible with GeoAgro GIS. This means that these devices can not be connected for real-time navigation, or direct upload/download of GPS features  (for more information please review  Why can't I connect my Garmin Nuvi or my gps-enabled mobile phone to GeoAgro GIS?).

Warning Warning: If you try to connect GPS devices not fully supported by GeoAgro GIS, the program will not recognize the device.

However, you may use these  receivers to transfer data, by reading or write GPX files from the mass storage device as mounted on your computer.  As a workaround, you can upload/download GPS features, by following these steps: Using GPS devices not compatible with NMEA
