Its been a while, I've lost my notes, and I don't have either a garmin 
gps handy or gpsbabel loaded right now, but it should be something like:

   gpsbabel -t -i garmin -f /dev/ttyS0 -o gpx -F outputfile.gpx

Without the -t, it should write waypoints into outputfile.gpx  Use -t 
for tracks and -r for routes.

gpsbabel home page also mentions to be sure that nothing else is using 
the serial port, such as gpsd.
