Mine has the following settings for I/O format:
The NMEA setting has worked for me. On startup it says "1999-2002 Garmin
Corp. Multi-Lingual" and the software version is 2.20. Maybe there is a
"single-lingual" version as well that doesn't support NMEA input.. Also
looking at the Garmin changelog for the multi-lingual version, NMEA
waypoint input was implemented in software version 2.04.
