Thanks Jason, it works.

I created /dev/pilot as a symlink to /dev/ttyUSB1
I added this line to /etc/modules.conf, to avoid running "modprobe

alias char-major-188 visor

Now i press the sync button on the craddle, then click on Backup in
JPilot, and it just works.
I configured the maximum available speed in JPilot. Seems to be ok.

I love this application. :-)
