No joy with my Garmin etrex GPS unit using a KeySpan USB serial adapter
on an iBook) with the etrex's Main Menu -> Setup -> Interface ->
  Serial Data Format set to  set to "NMEA In/NMEA Out" (at 4800 baud).

KisMac does seem to identify the correct serial port 

But I get the same message on the Map tab of KisMAC:

     Last Position 0.000000N, 0.000000E @ (null) Not enough sattelites 
in View!

... whether the Garmin etrex is plugged into the KeySpan or not.

Without KisMAC, I can see the NMEA data coming into that port with
ZTerm (at 4800 baud).  So the KeySpan USB driver seems to be working
