An observation on the Oregon

If you leave it in Garmin Serial (System/Interface/Garmin Serial) interface mode it always powers up in Mass Storage mode when you plug it into the computer.

But if you put it in Garmin Spanner mode, it asks you if you want Mass Storage or not and if you choose "No", it fires up the gps and is still connected, but you can see the display, and use the gps, unlike Mass Storage where all you see if the dull black Garmin screen.

You may not be able to do everything you want, like copy Geocache files to the Garmin\Gpx folder, but you can upload to Mapsource in Spanner mode.
