greetings from a new MacBookAir user.

I had to use my Durametric to clear an air bag code on last Sat. I had left the car running with a/c going to cool down the inside before taking off, and without the seat belt connected the air bag light came on. Yep, its happened before.

I use my Durametric with a Sony PC. No problems.

I now have a small MacBookAir and want to take it on road trips with Durametric software installed. I'm told I'll need emulation software and then I can download to my Mac, get the latest Durametric, and use a newer version interface.

I think I downloaded an update a few years ago into my PC. the original interface works great with it.

Question: Mac users, what did you have to do to get Durametric to run on your Mac? I always carry the Durametric stuff in the car, but not the PC as its really my wifes laptop. so now I have the Mac for myself and want to take it with me when I'm on a road trip.

Any tips on getting it set up would be appreciated. jl

I also have a Macbook Air and have used bootcamp to partition the flash drive and installed a full version of windows to run some financial software tht has not been ported to the mac.

That way you have the best of both worlds. If you can take it to an apple store they can provide all you will need.

thanks for the timely reply.

Assume your using Windows 7, any problems there?

Our daughter and family are east of Memphis, and we get there and to Nashville on a regular basis. Hope to see you out on the road!

Cheers,

If I've got this right, you are using Bootcamp system emulator and have installed Windows in a flash drive. when you use the Durametric you plug in the flash drive, start windows and voila! Yes?

I do not use a separate flash drive - it is the one built into the Macbook Air. I just boot it up as the Windows choice vs the OS choice and run it like a normal pc. I can switch it back and forth - but chose not to run both at the same time. With Parallel you can run both at same time but the one program that I run under Windows will not run that way.

This way I can have all my programs on a small light portable computer and not worry about what platform it runs under.
