    Default Garmin and macOS incompatabilities (not solved yet completely)

    Hello fellow forum members,

    After reading many post's I've decided to replace my pretty old Garmin GPS12 with a Garmin Drive 76, although i have read a lot about problems in connection with macOS!

    First I started out with Android File Transfer App and today I switched to MTP for Mac.

    MTP for Mac is an Android file transfer driver for macOS. It is a kernel filesystem driver that lets you access Android gadget’s files by USB. Connect Android to macOS, and you will see it as a file system. It gives you native access to your Android (or any other MTP compatible devices, e.g. newer Garmin GPS) on macOS (Mac OS X). Just connect your Android phone or tablet via USB cable to your Mac and allow "File transfer", you will have access to any file on it. You will get them the same way as you would insert a USB stick or any other external drive. Your gadget will appear in the system as another drive.


    That means that you can access any files on your mobile device from Finder or any other software on your Mac. And it’s already unnecessary to copy these files with Android File Transfer to your local disk in advance to use them. You even can edit them directly on your's device from macOS.

    I hope this will alleviate many headaches :-)

    As the product is in the final stage before the start of sales, its still can be downloaded for free from:

    Have fun and enjoy!

    I just got an email from the software engineer @ hyperintegrate.com and he told me that the further product development and bug fixing on hold due to the sanctions :-(
