GPS data from Garmin devices in GPX format can be converted to an ArcGIS feature class or shapefile using the GPX To Features (Conversion) tool.
The instructions provided describe how to convert Garmin GPS data to a feature class or shapefile.
ArcGIS currently only supports serial port connections of GPS equipment. For more information, please refer to the following Esri Support Technical Article, Bug: USB connection does not link a GPS unit to ArcGIS.
As a workaround, use the DNR Garmin Application from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to convert GPS data to formats compatible with ArcMap. Click here to access the application's download file.
This generates a feature class showing the locations and information collected on the GPS device.
