Neither do I :)  But if "usb:" works for you, stick with it and
hopefully it'll do a better job for the Treo680.

I'm not sure what you mean, but I really don't think syncing two devices
bidirectionally is going to work with gnome-pilot right now.  If you
want to see the Treo's unique IDs you can look in the files

Okay, that makes some sense.  I don't know much about Treos but I'm
amazed there isn't a GSM/CDMA version that can be used worldwide.

The "copy to PDA" is on the conduit screen but the settings are PER-PDA.
Select the PDA from the drop-down list, and configure your per-PDA
conduit settings.

I suspect it does a 'slow sync' - ignoring the unique IDs and comparing
the contents of each record to perform matches.
