I have an all NMEA 2000 system on my sailboat connected to Open CPN running on an M1 chip-based MacBook Pro through an Actisense NGT-1. The problem is that the NGT-1 drivers aren’t compatible with the M1 Chip Mac even though those Macs have been on the market for a year and a half. Consequently, I can’t run my chart plotter on the newer computer until Actisense produces new drivers that make it compatible with the M1 chip Mac. I’ve been corresponding with both Actisense engineers and FTDI engineers about this for about six months, but nothing seems to be happening. has anyone been able to solve this problem?September 22, 2022 at 12:14 pm #23128Fred of OccamParticipant
Have you loaded the serial drivers for Mac, ie PL2303HXD&G_Mac Driver_v2.1.0_20210?
These should be available on line.

I don’t see that driver on the Actisense website. Do you have a link to the website where you found PL2303HXD&G_Mac Driver_v2.1.0_20210?September 23, 2022 at 12:57 pm #23218Fred of OccamParticipant
It is not on the Actisense site.
Just Google PL2303HXD&G_Mac Driver and you will get to several relevant sites.
If you still have a problem I can send you a copy to your own web address.
My macs do not work without this driver.December 24, 2022 at 6:41 am #31076williamwei1326Participant
same issue here, using Macbook pro 2021, arm-based m1 chips. Cannot install the PL2303HXD&G_Mac Driver (Mac os 10) and the mac os on the laoptop is Ventura 13.1. using parallel desktop running Windows11 and system cannot identify the NGT-1-USB device, installed the usb driver but still no read from the Actisense NMEA Reader and navigation software. cannot upgrade the firmware too.
Looking for any good solutions ASAP.December 27, 2022 at 8:51 am #31370
