If it's a Prolific PL 2303 this driver was reported to work on OSX
Mountain Lion 10.8.4, 64 or 32 bit. I thought I read that back a few 
weeks ago. 

Just had a look and it's in Spanish LOL. There are translators online
that should take care of that problem.

Hi Mats,

I'm not a MAC user. But I seem to remember reading in the UV-5R group that a MAC user had the same issue with the ratio going into transmit with the programming cable plugged into the radio. I believe the fix was to acquire and install the correct driver.

Like the drivers for the Windows PC, you have to install a particular driver to work the USB-to-Serial chips that are commonly used in the cheaper (but not always cheaper) programming cables. Check the CHIRP wiki. It has a recently updated list of driver sources that you should try.
