      Works great. I did have to find a driver for Mountain Lion that was compatible with interactive whiteboard. The driver it ships with and is available for download seemed outdated for the Mac. But, it works great.

      Had trouble under Mac Snow Leopard

      Comments about IOGEAR USB to PDA Serial Adapter Mac/Win:

      Bought it to connect a Garmin GPS to my Mac. The supplied drivers failed to load under Snow Leopard. After much research I got it to work...... Now that the driver issues are sort out, it looks like it's working great. If it were truly plug-and-play, I would have given it 5 stars. Unfortunately, needing to use my advanced Unix knowledge and getting under the hood on a Mac, really isn't the Mac way. Not sure if other adapters would have the same problem.Would only recommend this to techie friends.

          I bought a $3 adapter on another site and it didn't work (at all, despite A LOT of troubleshooting) and left me with no alternative but to simply purchase another. This one is still cheap, is well constructed and works as it's supposed to work.

              It would not work with my digitizing tablet out of the box, and neither manufacturer could get it to work. I had to return it.

                I would have given 5 stars if the Windows 7 drivers had been included. Still, they're easily available on the IOGear website. Instructions weren't great either, but the adapter works very well.

                  Does exactly what it says, and works well with OSX. I've had several of these for years and have had zero problems with them.
