Download Windows USB Serial Driver
The driver is provided in a .zip archive which you will need to unpack into a temporary folder. Then run InstallDriver.exe
The driver may also be obtained by installing the software supplied on the mini-CD with your GPS, or from the QStarz download page.
We have ended active development on TackTracker for macOS to allow us to focus on the Windows and Web players. See release notes for more information.
Note: As from macOS Big Sur (11), we are no longer able to recommend a driver for connecting QStarz loggers.
