I have updated to OSX 10.11. My Davis Vantage Pro weather station is not being recognised by the weather software I run (Weather Cat) I think its down to the drivers I use for the USB connection from station to iMac
Does anybody know if there are issues or if there is planned software for OSX 10.11 for the USB to UART Bridge drivers.
No problems running on OSX 10.10 and I have tried downloading the latest drivers but no support for OSX 10.11 mentioned.
Thanks for any replies.
We've gotten a few complaints of CP210x drivers malfunctioning in 10.11, but none of the issues so far have ended up being the driver itself. From our perspective, the driver is behaving the same as in 10.10, and we haven't personally observed any failures. A customer does have one outstanding issue - the driver fails when the device is connected directly to one of their Macbook Pros (and works on all of their other Macs), but we haven't been able to reproduce this one either. In that case, the problem was solved by routing the CP210x device through an external USB Hub. That might be something that you can try.
Otherwise, it's pretty difficult to debug third-party products using our CP210x devices: they could be using custom hardware, drivers, etc. that we have no visibility into. You may want to try contacting Davis, or whoever makes Weather Cat, to see if any other customers are seeing this issue.
