UVISOR(4)                BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                UVISOR(4)

     uvisor -- USB support for the PalmOS based PDAs

     device uvisor
     device ucom

     The uvisor driver provides support for USB based PalmOS PDAs, like Hand-
     spring Visor, Palm Mxxx series, and Sony Clie.

     The device is accessed through the ucom(4) driver which makes it behave
     like a tty(4).  The device has several ports for different purposes, each
     of them gets its own ucom(4) device.  The attach message describes the
     purpose of each port.

     The usual Pilot tools can be used to access the attached device on the
     HotSync port.

     The uvisor driver supports the following devices:

     o   Handspring Treo
     o   Handspring Treo 600
     o   Handspring Visor
     o   Palm I705
     o   Palm M125
     o   Palm M130
     o   Palm M500
     o   Palm M505
     o   Palm M515
     o   Palm Tungsten T
     o   Palm Tungsten Z
     o   Palm Zire
     o   Palm Zire 31
     o   Sony Clie 4.0
     o   Sony Clie 4.1
     o   Sony Clie 5.0
     o   Sony Clie PEG-S500C
     o   Sony Clie NX60
     o   Sony Clie S360

     The code to provide multiple ucom(4) instances has not yet been ported
     from NetBSD.  It is unclear whether this driver works in its current

     tty(4), ucom(4), usb(4)

     The uvisor driver was adopted from NetBSD 1.5 in August 2002.  This man-
     ual page was adopted from NetBSD by Tom Rhodes <trhodesATFreeBSD.org> at
     that time.
