Build #184 – 1.3.0-RC1

Download: MacCaching Build #184(9mb)
For more beta builds:

A minor update from #184. Sounds like most HC owners are up and running again. There may be a minor issue with the 60C-series from Garmin. If you have trouble, post in the forums. I’m calling this RC-1. I know all of the bugs aren’t fixed, but I need to push out a newer version than 1.2.3.

Announcing: MacCaching 1.0!

YouTube Video: Demo of 1.0’s Features

On October 31, 2006 CMiYC Labs released the first version of MacCaching. The first 12 hours it was available for download, fifty people downloaded it. That might not seem like many, but that was just a few months ago. Since then, there have been many thousands of downloads, almost three hundred posts in the forums, and we have received hundreds of email messages.

Thank you for all of the support to this point.

I’m proud to announce version 1.0 of MacCaching!

Here is what is new for 1.0: Read the rest of this entry »

Open Source IOGear / Prolific Driver

In the forums, ryust has pointed out that there are is an Open Source version of the drivers for the Prolific chipset. This chipset is typically found in the serial-to-USB adapters that typically cost less than $15 US.

The drivers directly from Prolific tend to be problematic, which is why we have been recommending the KeySpan adapter (about $40US).

Give these Open Source Prolific drivers a try if you are using a serial adapter based on it (most commonly the IOGear chipset) and let us know how they work.

MacCaching 0.6.2

Finally. Download: MacCaching 0.6.2 (5.1mb)

This build of the 0.6.x releases should work.

I didn’t realize I was compiling the cmconvert and gpsbabel utilities incorrectly. I apologize for the trouble. Please let me know if this version still doesn’t work!
