The last time I checked with palm, I received the email that it's not supported on Macs and I see no such option in the hotsync manager that there is in the WINDOZE version.
Yeah I know that Palm are not working on it...
I was wondering if anyone in the shareware/freeware world has come up with a fix...
As I see it...
The palm makes a TCP/IP connection to a specific system on the network (your desktop) on a specific port (can't remember the number off hand)..
I was thinking of a perl script which accepts data from this PORT and redirects it to a fake /dev/ interface which the Hot Sync on the Desktop Mac would see as an interface so you would just select it..
So really you just need to write a little script which listens for TCP/IP connections and passes them on to a /dev/ port.. which you create..

It seems that maybe the solution could be built from some of the parts of this MacOSXHint (http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20031014043646454&query=palm+usb+avant+go).
I would be curious if it worked. I haven't played much with the parts but they look promising.
