I have mine syncing using the earlier versions of these packages from
red carpet, but not exactly the way I'd like to. I have to start gpilotd
from a terminal, then go to my visor and do the sync thing, then kill
gpilotd. If I try to sync a second time, or used gpilotd as a daemon
(they way it's intended to be run), syncing fails.

If I get the various packages/versions you list above, can I use gpilotd
as a daemon, or will I still have to run it, one shot mode, from the
command line?
