On OS X, there are no ports being picked up for the GPS functionality. Possibly, incorporating the newest qextserial code will be a start as there is support for OS X in the current 1.2 branch. Another possibility would be allowing manual input of the device path.

is this #1170 the same issue?

#2 Updated by John Tull over 14 years ago

No, but thanks for adding that pointer. It might be possible that a fix here can supply a fix for the plugin as well. This bug relates to the under development GPS functionality (live tracking, etc.) that Tim and Marco are working on.

#3 Updated by Marco Hugentobler over 14 years ago

Does the upgrade of the qextserial code (thanks, jef!) solves this problem?

Yes, this is now working. I do not have my hardware to test the 1170 possible fix right now.
