My Garmin can work well on Windows, but when I use Garmin in ROS, and follow the Getting Started with gpsd_client (C++) to get data from Garmin, all steps work well until using gpscat , my Garmin connect with
computer well, but no data print out with gpscat. Meanwhile, the software SNSRXCFG_320.exe from Garmin's company can connect the device well. Can anyone help me to solve the problem? And when I follow the remaining tutorials no the page of Getting Started with gpsd_client (C++), I just can't get any data on topic /fix. I'll appreciate if anyone one can help me, thanks a lot!!

I got the same problem for garmin 18x usb. The device can be recognized well but no data comes out. I suppose the reason is that there is no linux based software that can decipher the garmin binary format the nmea sentences.
