GPSy and GPSy Pro software both work under the OSX/Classic environment. We're currently
upgrading both products to work natively under OSX and hope to have a product out shortly. As of March of 2005, we've made good progress on the port and should have something by the early summer.
In the meantime, here are some tips on how to use GPSy products optimally in OSX:
- Either OSX 10.2 or 10.3 work great
- Download the Mac OS 9 drivers for your Keyspan device from Keyspan.com.

- Install the OS9 drivers (make sure your Keyspan device is unplugged).
- And away you go. All features should work normally under OSX / Classic.
- Congratulate Apple

despite having such a cozy compatibility layer. Thank Keyspan for finally getting their
OSX drivers finished so that said lazy GPS software developers have motivation to get
