So, do we know if the newer Garmin units have only USB or do they have
serial as well?

You can't. Fun with USB...
Even something like a USB->Serial converter cannot be used in this
case. Those are designed for the computer end of a USB cable. I
know of no way to convert an end-device from USB to serial, although
perhaps somebody has created a more intelligent device that can do
this now. If so, somebody on here will enlighten us I'm sure.
