Hi,

I found Francis Fustier's article for installing the BU-353 on a Mac. This article is old but it contains a link to download the Prolific PL2303 USB driver for macOS 10.13.
https://blog.francis-fustier.fr/en/insta...avxmacenc/

It may help if you told us what version of macOS you have and what other application (software package) you are trying to use with the BU-353 in addition to OpenCPN.

Here is the official Prolific download site for their driver on macOS 10.15:
http://www.prolific.com.tw/us/showproduc...29&pcid=41

Prolific added this special note on the installation for macOS 10.13 to 10.15:
"NOTE: Mac OS High Sierra 10.13 introduces a new feature that requires user approval before loading new third-party kernel extensions. Go to System Preferences - Security & Privacy and click Allow."
