there is an acknowledged problem with uvisor and freebsd when attempting
to connect via USB. AFAIK, there is only connection via serial, and more
recently via ppp. I am not familiar with the M130, so I don't know whether
ppp or serial are options for you or not. The ppp option is on the archives
for pilot-link and coldsync, or if you can't find it, I can dig up the 
info and send it to you.

Hope that helps.
