Hi Raoul,

thanks for you question. I do not know any method to expose the GPS trackers as serial ports on Mac OS X, but I'm also not really an Mac OS X user. Judging from the linux source code of the corresponding Linux driver (http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=blob;f=drivers/usb/serial/navman.c;hb=HEAD), it shouldn't be to hard to implement for Mac OS X by somebody who as a bit of experience in these things.

Michael
