Changing baud rate of a Garmin GPS 18x PC
vsometng
I have a Garmin GPS 18x PC device. Its default baud rate is 4800. For the application I am using it for I need a baud rate of 115 200. How do I change the baud rate?

You first should download the technical specs (PDF) from here:

https://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/GPS_18x_Tech_Specs.pdf

Look at the Comm and Config menus (page 32). Then download the configuration software that the spec is referring to if you don't already have it. I don't know what rates the unit supports (didn't check) but Garmin also makes a copy of GPSgate available for download and you might be able to fudge things that way if the device doesn't directly support the speed you need.
