Mounting a Windows WinCE.NET Device in OS X?

I have recently become the owner of a GPS device, which runs the WinCE.NET operating system. To update various files (Maps, POI's, Nefarious Hackery, etc) access to the file system is required.

Hooking the device up to our Vista machine pops open a lovely helper to sync details (Not needed) however, also mounts the device in explorer giving easy access to all the files and folders. Does anyone know if this is possible on OS X?

Superb! I don't really need the app install feature, just access to the files.

I was hoping that there would be a nice bit of FOSS which would cut out all the rubbish and just let me mount the device though.

It has to be said, MissingSync is the most hideous piece of Mac software I've ever come across... and I made SeaMoose!

It wasn't able to mount the SatNav as a drive, it just attempted to connect over and over without success whilst making the device squeal like a pig (Seems to be a horrid screech it makes when connecting to a PC, though it only does it once when connecting to Vista :)).

Guess I'm stuck using the Vista machine then. I was really hoping someone had devised an app/driver just to mount the file-system, rather than all this un-necessary sync'ing nonsense.
