Alright, so the same name I'll have to use with TEQC will show up in
/dev the moment the USB-Serial driver is installed properly and the
device plugged in?
I once set up a modem on a NeXT machine. I got it to work, but never
really understood what all these tty devices were good for. USB wasn't
there at the time.
On typical OS X boxes/notebooks, you will normally only find IrDA and a
modem port, but no 'free' serial ports. Some people replace their
pluggable modem card with an external serial port adaptor cable
('StealthPort', etc.). These are usually more reliable than USB Serial
converters. On some OS X machines, Bluetooth serial/SPP ports may also

Yep, I know some of this, but then usually most GPS Software for Mac
OS(X) has something like a preferences Dialog which will offer a choice
of available serial ports, u simply choose one and that's it. Most of
the time it's easy to tell the USB-Serial from the 'Modem' or 'IrDA'
port by name.
