PFC Cirrus II console with Avionics, Serial-to-USB (FTDI chipset)

I am using a Serial to USB adapter to my new iMac to connect my Cirrus II console up t the iMac. The Cirrus II console works with other simulators, but XP11 does not see the console and avionics. Previous versions of XP did see the console. When will you make XP11 see the older Cirrus II console with Avionics work on a MAC?

Hi Paul,

We have never supported Mac COM port (via third party USB COM part adapter) but we do support COM ports on Windows in X-Plane 10 and 11. Unfortunately, if this has ever worked in the past, it has been without our knowledge or testing or intention of support.
