    GPS Software / Hardware

    Hey,
    my dad has an older garmin GPS 12 handheld reciever, they sell a serial cable for it, I was just wondering how I can find out if the reciever is compatable with software. I have tried to find lists, but cannot find them anywhere.

    Any pointers to some info would be greatly apprecheated.
