I bought the GS911 in January of this year and only have MAC and Iphone...I bought an older pc laptop to use for now but not sure how long it will last. What can I do to use with my Macbook Pro?

Thanks you for making that point, I figured that was coming.

You can read the previous posts about Boot Camp and how other inmates are using the product with Mac, here's the FAQ from the manufacturer:

Thanks! I've been on the fence, but I know I need this so I just ordered one.

It'll be nice to finally get the SERVICE reminder turned off.

Hey folks, please remember my previous post regarding the invoice. Our shopping cart is not smart enough to apply a discount code (still working on that, we may have a fix) so it will show the retail price when you place your order. However the card is not charged until we manually process the invoice and apply your discount at that time. You will see the discount on the invoice that we supply with the product. Your card will be charged correctly and your statement will show the discount.

Cheers,
Ted Porter

Cool deal D-Mac, you'll love it. Don't forget to download the free Beta software also, it's got some cool new features.

Thanks!

I would get an old copy of Windows XP and get Parallels for your Mac. It runs in coherence, so you can stay in OSX and have XP running in the background without even noticing it is there.

Does it have to be XP or can I run Window 7 with the GS911?

I wanted to see how my Droid 3 phone would work when my GS-911 arrives, so I went ahead and downloaded the verifier application. I had used it once before a couple of years ago with my original Droid.

Then I remembered I needed a JRE to run it, and picked up netmite, which I had used in the past for this purpose.

It didn't work.

Then I discovered that there is a beta version of an Android app available through hexcode.co.za, via their installer software. This runs on the PC, and apparently once a GS-911 is connected to it it will give you links and such to download the various applications.

Since it's native Android, I expect it will work. I forget whether the site said you need Android 2.0+ or 2.2+, but either is fine in my case.

Cool, sounds like you are on it. Let me know if you run into any problems. I don't have a Droid, but I understand it needs to be a version 2.0 or newer so it sounds like you are good to go.

Thanks for your business!

I have a customer out in the middle of nowhere on a group ride with a warning light on. Of course the rider's manual tells him to check the oil and otherwise "take it to the nearest dealer" . He made the mistake of leaving home without a GS911.

He just placed his order for a GS911 and is paying for overnight Saturday delivery so he can read out his codes and find out what's going on.

Thanks to everyone for their support, we've moved a lot of inventory. We will need to end the discount at the end of this month, so that means discounts will apply through September 30 2011.

Thanks again!

Thanks for the quick shipping. I got my unit today, and within a few minutes I had everything set up for my Droid3 to talk to it. They're happy with each other, and I expect they'll be even happier when I plug the thing in to the diagnostic port for some data.

It's nice and compact, and there's no reason I can't take it with me on trips.
