    Garmin announced that theirs will be Mac compatible - see the link below. Sorry that I don't know anything about the different GPS units, so I can't make any specific product recommendations.

    I just received a Garmin GPSmap76x... Garmin still does not have MAC compatibility. I bought the National Geographic TOPO! software that is GPS interfaced and MAC compatible, but cant seem to get the GPS to link up with it.

    infact, I dont think the GPS will be recognized on the computer because Garmin does not have any MAC drivers available (to what I can find). SO... any GPS software compatible with mac, wont work with Garmin because the computer wont find it.

    I think.


    NOTE: I just ran google earth and had my waypoints and tracks downloaded.

    From what I remember you can't install maps from the National Geographic software into a Garmin unit. Only Garmin software allows you do to that. You've gotta print a map (yeah I know) when you use the National Geographic software.
    I can't wait for Garmin to work with Macs. I've got a handheld unit that just sits because I can't upload maps via the computer.
