Interesting...   I have a Garmin ForeTrex 201 wrist-wearable GPS (which I 
believe has identical firmware to the yellow eTrex) and it DOES plot from my 
TH-D7A(g).    Pics of it in action here:

Review of the ForeTrex 201 here:

Is there possibly some difference in the Euro version of the TH-D7 that 
prevents this from working?
