TMW-1000 application download for Mac OS X
Using the TMW-1000 logger under Mac OS X is absolutely simple with our little dashboard widget.
If you're not used to the Dashboard, it's a particular environment in which you can arrange and run very small web application, called 'Widgets'.
To access the Dashboard, just click the dashboard icon on your dock, or the dashboard key on your keyboard, or press "Fn" and "F12" together.
The widget will look like the picture on the right.
If the logger wasn't connected to the system, or just turned off when the widget was started, just click on "Search device" to force device detection.
You may want to configure or check some parameters of the application; if you click the small "i" on the top-right of the widget, the following configuration panel will appear.
As you can see, you can choose the device port (the widget should pick up the right port for you) and the directory in which files will be downloaded (if you change this path, please make sure that this directory really exists!).
When you are ready to download the log, press the "Download log" button. Please note that if you want to also clean up the logger memory after the download, you have to check the "Erase memory" option.
When finished, you will find the gpx in the chosen directory, with the "tmwlog" filename prefix.
Here is the widget package:
Click the download button and wait for the system to ask you if you want to install the software, then accept the widget by clicking the "Keep" button.
The widget is now installed and can be accessed anytime by activating the dashboard (with the icon on the dock, or the dashboard key on your keyboard, or by pressing "fn"+"F12").
