10.7: Prolific 2303 based USB to Serial adapter drivers
Authored by: johnalex on Aug 03, '11 04:06:19AM

I tried this, but the driver didn't work for me. In my case, I installed the driver from failberg:

https://github.com/failberg/osx-pl2303

Note the warning: "A very unofficial fork of the Prolific PL2303 driver." However, this driver worked when the official driver did not.

Same experience here as johnalex. Official driver worked under Snow Leopard, but not under Lion. Although the driver was loaded (confirmed through About This Mac --> System Report --> USB), "Load My Tracks" could not find my Garmin GPS.

With this unofficial fork, it works fine again. I can't help but wonder for how long, though...
