Default Blackberry Torch 9800 and Garmin GPSMap 62s compatibility

Please Login to Remove!

I use this GPS for walking in the countryside entirely off road.

Is there any way to connect these two devices via their respective USB ports? I'm not clear whether these are mini or micro USB ports.

Is there any software that can be put on the BB Torch to enable one either to record off-road tracks and or download them from the Garmin to the Torch, in order to store them there temporarily in a meaningful format before moving them to a home computer?

Please note I understand that the Torch has its own GPS, proprietary map and that there is an option to put Google maps on it. Neither of these maps shows any off-road detail at all.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

The Torch has a Micro-USB connection. Sorry can't help with the rest other than suggesting that it probably will not work.
