This is just a SWAG (scientific wild assed guess). Perhaps you need to install the Mac driver for the BU-353. Try USGlobalsat Corporate

I had the same problem. Here is the answer by Goblasat support.
Best regards

Hello Arwed,
*
Thank you for contacting USGlobalSat Customer Care.

Unfortunately, due to the specific version of the PL2303 Prolific Chipset used in the BU-353, it will not be compatible with Windows 8 & Windows 8.1 & Windows 10.
Although, just recently, we may have found a work around, please refer to this forum post: BU-353 with Windows 8 & Windows 8.1

If you're looking for a USB GPS Receiver that is fully compatible with Windows 8, Windows 8.1 & Windows 10,
we highly recommend the new BU-353-S4, which uses the new SiRF Star IV chipset that offers better performance, faster time to fix and better accuracy: USGlobalsat Corporate

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks.

Yes, installing the old driver and telling windows not to update the driver can work, but it was not worth messing with that all the time, so I purchased a new puck BU-343-S4 This was for a Win10 machine. This has been written up previously in a thread titled with "Windows 10" in it if there is any interest in searching.
