Getting Handspring Treo 90 to sync with Jpilot

The treo 90 uses the visor module so this "should" work with other visors. (Treo 600 is reported to work this way too)

Download and install Jpilot (see the [SynapticHowto] for installing Software).

In preferences/settings of JPilot, set the serial port to /dev/ttyUSB1. Speed is 57600.

Close JPilot

Hit the sync button on the Treo's cable.

In a Terminal type:

ls /dev/ttyUSB*

To make sure ttyUSB0 an ttyUSB1 are there. They ONLY show up there when the sync button is pushed then they go away.

Open Jpilot. Hit the sync button on the left. It should sync.

How to install files on the Handspring

Open Jfile, go to file/install. Browse to the files you want to install and double click or hit the add button. This adds them in the "files to be installed pane". Once you've got all the files you want selected in the pane, hit done and close JPilot.

Hit the sync button on the Visor/Treo and make sure its in /dev, then open JPilot and hit the sync button. The install files window pops up with the files to be installed in the lower pane, hit done and they should sync over to the palm.

Its not elegant or as simple as it should be, but this is how I got my Treo 90 to sync finally! [Margot Ross]

I have had my info on Visor PRo snynced with Ubuntu. But, taking Contacts as an example, they don't seem to work well in Evolution. I mean, the categories/fields are not matched. By the way, Contacts is in fact the only section that updated/snynced.
