Garmin Oregon 450 with Linux

view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi! I am looking to buy the Garmin Oregon 450 Mapping GPS and I wonder if I am going to encounter major problems or limitations by running Linux (slack 13.1) on my computer?? I am new to GPS'es and I don't know whats involved in getting the GPS to run with Linux. So far, I am only aware that I might need to install some applications but I don't know which ones... I am looking to get the full functionality of the GPS (I guess for over $300). Anybody is aware of incompatibilities or problems between this GPS and Linux? Thanks for any feedback! (HowTos)
