Basecamp (Mac OS) cannot find device (GPSMAP276C)

Hello, I have trying to find more hints about this problem and all what I found so far did not help.

Basecamp does not find my GPS.

Here are the SW versions
Macbook Pro 13": 10.8.3
Basecamp: 4.1.2
GPSMAP276C: 5.50
Garmin Communicator Plug-in Version 4.0.4.0


and what I tried already
The GPS is recognized with basecamp on a Windows PC (same cable).
The USB on my Mac is working e.g. USB stick, mouse, camera - all ok
called Mac hotline - gave a special restart (ALT+CMD+P+R) - no difference

Any idea what now?

Add-on:

1. I installed basecamp on another Macbook pro 13" 10.8.x and the same result - basecamp does not find the GPS.
2. I installed windows 7 on my Mac, followed by Basecamp and

dada - basecamp recognizes my GPS and I can e.g. upload tracks and waypoints.
This eases my life a little, it does not solve my problem since all my maps are installed on the MAC OS and I do not have the installation CD for the Windows side with me (since I travel around the world on my motorbike and are therefore space-limited).

How to get the Basecamp in MAC OS recognize my GPS?

BaseCamp will not help you transfer maps to your GPS.

You need Garmin MapInstall for Macintosh to do that job.


BaseCamp is recognizing your GPS, since you can transfer Waypoints etc.


Try MapInstall and see if you can install maps on your GPS that way.

Mac does not see my GPS

thanx, since I am new in this I thought basecamp is same as the old Mapsource. Learned something more now.

Well, then my problems remains, as Mapinstall does not find my GPS either.
It seems like the whole MAC OS does not find my GPS.

Any ideas?

I'm guessing that the USB 3.0 protocol is incompatible with the GPSMAP276c. Try using a USB 2.0 Hub in between your MBPro and the GPS.

Thank you very many



That was it.
I knew it was working at home when I tested with roadtrip. Since I had many USB devices connected I used my USB2.0 hub and now on the road, I did not use it (UNTIL NOW)

Cool - soon you will get some tracks from our gravel road riding
