GPS source code for Windows


I have a Garmin etrex GPS that I am trying to hook up to my laptop having Windows XP professional. I need a source code written in Java(preferably) or C. Does anyone have any clues about its existence? Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks a Bunch.

Looks quite promising to me.

There also are a number of libraries available (check out )

Hope this helps

Recently I have posted some code to read GPS in Windows environment with Visual C++, maybe could be helpful:
Garmin Etrex supports NMEA and a Garmin proprietary communication protocol. The protocol was (is?) available on Garmin web site.

To achieve your goal find a RS232 communication example for XP (google). From there add Garmin’s functionality.
