Anyone out there use a Magellan GPS and have Vantage Point running who could help me out recovering some data from the Triton?

I've given up trying to get the laptop running it again, just too complex for this cybercretin. But if I could send the GPS to someone, along with a USB drive, and they could just download all the tracks, routes and waypoints, get them on the GPS and send it all back, it would be really helpful.
Should probably set up a virtual box on the mac and try to get XP and VP working on that but, again, cybercretinism intervenes.

I am in the south of the state if that helps..... and a bit of a map nerd with way too much GPS software!

I also still have an old laptop running XP!

Hi you wonderful person. Vantage Point should run on your laptop, but I don't want you to risk running into issues if you try installing it and things go bung.
