Flytec has been acquired by Naviter old. On the original Flytec website, we can read :

With Microsoft’s release of Windows 8 and later 8.1, access to flight data or configuration of older Flytec devices through a USB cable is no longer working. The manufacturer of the USB/Serial converter chip took the opportunity with Windows 8 to enforce a generation change of his products.

Some readings on the internet seemed to show that it was possible to successfully install an old driver (2008) on recent versions of Windows. We have successfully tested this installation for a Flytec 6020 and a Flytec 6015.

The 2008 IO-Cable_PL-2303_Drivers-Generic_Windows_PL2303_Prolific driver can be downloaded from our website. Here are the installation steps:

  • Unzip the resulting zip file
  • Run file _PL2303_Prolific_GPS_1013_20090319.exe
  • Connect the GPS vario
  • Go to the control panel
  • Option Device manager option
  • In principle, GPS is not recognized by your computer. Although French, screenshots can help

  • right click on Prolific-to-Serial Comm Port
  • Choose Update pilot
  • Browse my computer for a driver

  • Choose from a list of available drivers
  • In principle a window appears with at least two drivers: the one that did not work and the one that has just been installed

  • Choose the version dated 27/10/2008
  • Enjoy
