No, they still support it. They have a separate, new site for tech 
support (there is a link on their main site) which includes a driver 
for OS X. I downloaded the driver and installed it. It does nothing 
with my adapter. KisMAC doesn't recognize any NMEA GPS device and ASP 
reports nothing different. Any other ideas for chips I should try?
