Err... Where does the FTDI bit come into it? For Flowlink you just plug in the interface, and it'll appear in the list of ports. If you don't see it, go into the System Profiler ('Apple Menu' -> 'About this Mac' -> 'More Info...') and see if your Mac has detected it as a USB device. You may need to plug it directly into your Mac, rather than through a hub such as your keyboard.

Just plugged the Flowlink into my MBP, aligned my FT80 on it and downloaded all of my sessions. Simples!!! Great work iSMART boffs. You have gone where the Polar guys should have gone years ago! Do they know just how the world is moving to Apple in droves? Guess not!!!

Hi there very clever people....so glad I found you and are now able to at least download workout files to my Mac......I do have a question though....with the FT80 I am able to set up strength training exercises. Do I enter this through the "polar personal trainer" site and will it transfer to my monitor or am I just dreaming ????? Do I need to wait for polar to get their act together to be able to do this ???????? I'm sure you have guessed by now that I am not very tech savvy !!!!

Thanks again for being very clever. Cheers Jo :P

At the moment, we don't support this, but we will at some point in a future release.
