Installation of prolific driver mac
« on: November 01, 2013, 02:01:24 pm »

In the user manual, you tell to check the sytem information underusb, inoder to confirm a proper installation. But this only works, if the gps device is connected. Otherwise the driver isn't shown.

Hello aguenther,

What device are you using?
What version of OSX are you using?

If it's one of our USB GPS Receivers, you can test it with our GPS Utility: http://www.usglobalsat.com/store/download/688/mac_gps_utility_v2.zip

Thanks.

Hello aguenther,

So I am still a bit unclear as to the issue you're having. Did you test the BU-353 with the GPS Utility I mentioned in my last post?

If so, what happened? Were you able to select "usbserial" as the port?

And of course, you must have the BU-353 plugged in, in order for your computer to recognize it.

If you're still having issues, please provide some details as to your specific issue.

Thanks.

Hi Jesse,
I was just confused about your installation description. Because for me it wasn't clear that the GPS has to be connecred before the driver shows up in the system information. I have been looking and looking and thought the installtion went wrong, befor e I found out the the BU-353 has to be connected before. I just wanted to help others not to run into the same confusion as I did after reading the installation information.

Regards
