Default ChartView downloading of waypoints to Garmin

I have used Chartview and other Maptech packages (Offshore Navigator) to manage my waypoints and then to download them into various GPS units, including my Northstar 951 and a Garmin 225. But, when I try to download toa handheld Garmin eTrex or a new Garmin 176c, I can't send any waypoints to the GPS. I can get the GPS position on the laptop, but can't transfer any waypoints. I have tried garmin Host Mode (xfer mode) as well as the nmea in/out modes but nothing....
any thoughts ??

Thanks
Eric

If memory serves I set up my Chartview Sortware to Garmin and my GPS interface to GARMIN/GARMIN.
