Subject:   Connecting Garmin GPSMAP60 to the USB

Hello Guys,

I'm trying to get my Garmin GPSMAP60 conected to my desktop through the
USB port, and then use gpsman. In gpsman is the port reference pointed
to "/dev/ugen0" (also tried "dev/ugen0.1-3", but up to now, without success.

The system:
FreeBSD mugin.localhost 6.2-RELEASE-p1 FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p1 #0: Sun
Feb 18 22:38:32 CET 2007
root@mugin.localhost:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/MUGIN  i386

The message in "dmesg" when ataching/detaching:

ugen0: vendor 0x091e product 0x0003, rev 1.10/0.01, addr 3
ugen0: at uhub0 port 2 (addr 3) disconnected
All threads purged from ugen0.3
All threads purged from ugen0.2
All threads purged from ugen0.1
All threads purged from ugen0
ugen0: detached

For my Palm Tungsten it all works perfectly, "dmesg":

ucom0: Palm, Inc. Palm Handheld, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 3
ucom0: Palm, Inc. Palm Handheld, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 3
ucom0: at uhub0 port 2 (addr 3) disconnected
All threads purged from cuaU0
All threads purged from ttyU0
ucom0: detached

The strange part of it is that the Palm Tungsten atachment/detachment
had exactly same behavior and messages, until I loaded the "ucom"
driver, so I suspect that the "ugen" driver might not be the correct one.

The question then is, which one to use?
