internally all usb gps devices convert from usb -> serial. i read the 
fact sheet on the internet and yours should do this also. however i 
could not find a driver for it and therefore i could not see, which 
chipset it is using for this conversion. a lot of gps devices (like 
mine) use the PL2302 chipset from prolific. they have a good osx driver 
for it.

the tty device is the serial interface to the operating system. its 
correct name depends on the driver for this chipset. have you got your 
holux to work with other programs on os x?
