	Oho! *That's* the term I didn't follow.

	You have hit a troublesome trouble. No. All of the cables for my 
old GPSs have one or other of Garmin's special plugs on one end -- and a 
serial plug on the other.

	The little piece of hardware you can hide in your hand, meant to 
put between a serial plug and a USB port, is no help even under XP.

	The original serial plug works with XP if the computer still has 
a serial port -- but not with Wine (nor CXO, btw, last time I looked).

	The XP laptop, actually, has no serial port of its own. I had to 
get a special card, whose external end has what liiks like an ethernet 
port; with it comes a little hand-length cable with an ethernet plug on 
one end, and a serial port on the other. 

	That *usually* works with XP -- not today, for instance, God 
knows why. And I don't seem to have a slot for the card on any of my 
other machines ...
