    Default Connecting Etrex 20 to Android Tablet

    I have an Ainol Elf 2 7" ICS tablet, does anybody know if it is possible to connect my Garmin Etrex 20 via the USB plug? Also are there any free mapping programs I can use it with? I can use my Etrex with Memory Map on my netbook & would like something similar for my tablet.

    Is possible to connect via USB only in "storage" mode. Ainiol has a RISC base processor and lot of applications are not rewritern yet for this type of processor.

    Thanks for the reply, at least I know there's no point in my searching any more for any apps that would be useful. Pity as it would be handy to have the maps on the larger tablet & use the etrex to get the gps signal. Not really a great deal of use for just connecting it in storage mode as I could just as easily do it using the micro SD card. Wonder if it's possible to use a bluetooth gps with my tablet? I have an old bt gps & a usb bt dongle.

    Storage mode works.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] gives a listing of apps for iphone and android. Not sure which works with eTrex20.
