Bluetooth LE Friend Not Appearing As Serial Port OSX

by epalaima on Sat Aug 12, 2017 1:45 am

Hi, I just got a Bluetooth LE Friend, and am trying to get it working by following the tutorials here:
https://learn.adafruit.com/introducing-adafruit-ble-bluetooth-low-energy-friend/terminal-settings

I have plugged in the Friend after installing the drivers as described and tried a restart. The serial port does not appear in CoolTerm or in the terminal when I use "ls /dev/". I have tried with other serial ports (USB to Arduino) and these work as expected.

Any idea what is wrong here? I have tried the friend both in DAT and CMD modes.

Can you check System Report and see if the Friend appears in the USB devices?

You can get to System report through the Apple Menu, About This Mac...
