Importing data from /dev/ttyUSB0
I have a problem trying to import data from a Garmin Forerunner 305 USB device. dmesg shows the following:
usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 3
usbcore: registered new driver usbserial
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for Generic
usbcore: registered new driver usbserial_generic
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial Driver core v2.0
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for Garmin GPS usb/tty
garmin_gps 1-2:1.0: Garmin GPS usb/tty converter detected
usb 1-2: Garmin GPS usb/tty converter now attached to ttyUSB0
usbcore: registered new driver garmin_gps
drivers/usb/serial/garmin_gps.c: garmin gps driver v0.23
However, if I try to do a cat /dev/ttyUSB0 it just hangs and the cursor doesn't return. Google Earth is also supposed to be able to import the data, but it hangs also.
By the way, if I plug it into the other USB port, it still declares that it is attached to ttyUSB0.
I seem to be missing something here, but I don't know what it is.
