Hopefully this is temporary. I have used the MacOS version for about 10 months with no issues. Any plans for a future app store version? Many of us have left the Windows ecosystem years ago.

A new report shows that 2021 MAC shipments grew almost twice as fast as the PC market as a whole. Annual growth for Mac was 28.3%, against 14.6% for the global PC market.

I noticed the same. I’ve used the Mac app successfully for almost 4 years. Never had a problem.

Last week I did the 11.3.3 update using their Windows utility running in a VirtualBox VM. Worked fine, but not a great solution for folks who don’t have a Windows license or don’t have the technical ability.

I can understand why (I do not blame him) Joe at ZAutomotive has done this.... It is a very prudent / a smart move on his part.

This move will save User's of the Tazer JL and ZAutomotive a lot of headaches..

Using the MAC utility Joe made available was always a crap shoot of sorts... yes, regardless of guy's here saying they used it and had no issues..

I keep an old PC laptop just for Tazer updates and for my GMRS software. Trying to update with a Mac was just too unreliable.
