    Anyone know how to get this to work on a Mac? I cant get either USB or Bluetooth to work. It only connects via BlueTooth for 2 seconds, then disconnects. USB is apparently not supported.

    Any workarounds or other apps out there that will allow me to tether to a mac?

    Thanks!

    I'm tethered via bluetooth on my mac right now. More info please, what phone, what version of pdanet. I upgraded my droid to 2.01 and needed to get an updated version of pdanet on the market, then I resetup it up on osx for bluetooth and now is working great

    I can't get PDAnet to work with 2.01 either. I looked on the PDAnet web site and can't find any new Mac version. The latest version on the Android page of PDAnet's site is 2.14 which is an .exe file which can't be used on Droid. I can't even find the old Mac version on the site. My version of 2.11 was for the phone only and only the Bluetooth DUN part worked. If there's a newer version that works on the Droid with Mac could you possibly post the link?

    So to update. First off, you can find the most up to date pdanet in the Android Marketplace. So last night after I updated to the latest, and it wouldn't work, then I readded the droid as a bluetooth device to my mac. Then it worked, and I posted the reply to you. Then I couldn't get it to work after that. But I did see on the release notes for the updated version of PDAnet on the Marketplace that a Mac version was coming very soon

    I got an email from PDANet... mac compatibility will be out in 2 weeks.

    I found the latest version in the Market Place and downloaded it and installed successfully (2.14). Doesn't work, and now I see the note about a Mac version coming, DUH! I should read these things more closesly.

    PSUfan5- thanks for letting us know about the email from PDAnet. Guess we're gonna have to wait a little on this one.

    Just an FYI here. If you install "Download Crutch", you can then install .exe files. HTH
