I'm sure you already thought of this, but they *could* be like the USB wireless modems. They turn up as mass storage
containing drivers, etc when you plug them in. They become modems when software switches them over.

I'm on my second USB Etrex. I'm certain I've got position data out of them, using gpsd and the Garmin USB driver on
Linux. I'm not positive that I've tried this with the newest one, though.
