And when the gps is plugged in via usb it does as a matter of fact show up as .wine/dosdevices/h: But the communicator plugin does not recognize it. I have tried google and the search function in this forum, but all solutions seem to recommend windows in virtualbox, which I would rather avoid.Or else softlinking /dev/tty USB - which does not exist in Ubuntu 10.04. This procedure works for software update on my garmin nvi265w, using Firefox in wine. I have tried installing IE on Play On Linux - and when I tried to update my maps I got an error message saying that I was using wrong version of . Experimenting I have now succeeded in messing up wine. It works OK but its UK/Europe maps have never been updated. Is it worthwhile paying for a UK/Europe map update for the 255w or buying a new GPS with UK/Europe lifetime updates? Cheers I have just purchased a new nuvi55 and was surprised to find out when I attemted to charge up my new Nuvi 55 with the Garmin charger it informed me that I was to use the charger supplied in the box,so I changed cables and lo behold it worked.Are new GPSs now so much better than the Nuvi 255w that it is better to go the buy new route? The reason I am writng this because I had not been able to get my LIFE time updates on my 255w for approx 5 months.Electronic devices seem to always come with several cords, or require the purchase of additional cords for communicating with computers.Fortunately, some Garmin GPS devices have an advanced method of updating without the need for a USB data cable or serial port.
I just did a complete maps update from the Garmin website and it worked flawlessly. I tried and tried to do it via Wine but I got stuck as you did.
