Four Things I Have Learned

  1. Released in 2001 as a UBS device, an upgrade wireless version came out in 2014. The entire product line was discontinued in 2018. You can still buy them on eBay for around $25.00
  2. My USB PowerMate still works fine in macOS Catalina (version 10.15.4)
  3. Griffin PowerMate Support website is still available with links to the latest User Guide.
  4. When I add a Keyboard Shortcut it appears to not to save.
