Hi Shannon,

Thanks for the info.  I downloaded the drivers at the link provided and restarted my computer but still no additional ports appear when Arduino is open and the mayfly is connected, turned on.

I’ve ordered a new micro usb/usb-c data cable that should be arriving today.  This will let me check on 2 variables; 1) it will allow me to have a new data cable with all new pins, 2) it will allow me to bypass the apple dongle that converts the standard usb connection to a usb-c.

Additionally, I’ll try connecting it to a pc this afternoon following the tutorials that Beth sent.  If none of these steps work, then I’ll get the “friend” from Adafruit.

Finally, the mayfly was previously used for monitoring CTD and turbidity.  I will be using it for the same purposes, just at a different location.  The sketch should be on the Mayfly already but without accurate time/date information, the data doesn’t have much value – and I can’t correct the time and date without making a connection to the computer, correct?

Thanks again for your time and help.
