Hey everyone,

I'm new to Arduino, and trying to get my Mac to 'talk' to the board using XBee and a Cocoa application. I have the XBee connected to my Mac using the Sparkfun Explorer USB board and another XBee wired to my Arduino (Uno). The XBee's connect fine using the Arduino IDE, but I really want a Cocoa application to send and receive data to my Arduino. I downloaded the example XCode project from the playground and I figured I'd work off of that, but I get a crash or error when I try to select the XBee breakout board serial port. Connecting my Arduino directly to my computer works fine, however. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Ok, I solved it! I had out of date FTDI drivers installed on my computer. Now it's working fine!  :D
