Garmin GPS getting wrong permissions

My garmin GPS is being attached with the wrong permissions, 600 instead of 666

I've followed the instructions outlined here, rmmodding gps_babel, making a file /etc/udev/rules.d/51-garmin.rules and trying both

ATTRS{idVendor}=="091e", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0003", GROUP="aluchko", MODE="0666"
SYSFS{idVendor}=="091e", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0003", MODE="0666"
But I still end up with
ll /dev/bus/usb/002/024 
crw-rw---- 1 root vboxusers 189, 151 Jan 31 22:10 /dev/bus/usb/002/024
Anyone have an idea what's going on? Here's the associated dmesg

[22974.906627] usb 2-5.1: USB disconnect, device number 23
[22980.203137] usb 2-5.1: new full-speed USB device number 24 using ehci_hcd
[22980.289881] usb 2-5.1: New USB device found, idVendor=091e, idProduct=0003
[22980.289888] usb 2-5.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=0, SerialNumber=0

Re: Garmin GPS getting wrong permissions

So it turns out that a colon was needed when assigning the permissions, and with that change both

ATTRS{idVendor}=="091e", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0003", GROUP="aluchko", MODE:="0666"


SYSFS{idVendor}=="091e", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0003", MODE:="0666"

Work fine
