Does ArcPad 10x communicate with Garmin GPS via USB? We are running Arcpad10 on a new laptop with out a serial port & a new Garmin 62s, which also does not have a serial connector plug anymore.

I read a post in this forum that indirectly hinted this is now possible, but cannot find anything saying for sure if it is true or not. I know the solution is for the virtual software to convert USB port to a virtual serial port. However, since serial ports now seem to be going the way of record players and VHS machines it would be nice for this to work in the native environment without the gimmicks.

Thanks in advance,
