I still want to use gSyncit and this new method seems to work well...this was mentioned previously in a similar fashion somewhere else on the web (or maybe on this site) but he did not explain how to do it. I have given up on using the Pre Calendar as an "active calendar" (but will try it again after WebOS update). I am now just using the Pre Calendar to look at my appointments and tasks but not to make changes. I now make my changes on my Google calendar on my Pre and it all syncs well with Google and also well from Google to Outlook and Outlook to Google…and I can still sync contacts the same…I did not make any changes to the gSyncit contact syncing with Google, Outlook, and the Pre. There seems to be a problem syncing the Pre calendar with Google in the past couple weeks (at least for me). I dragged my Pre calendar from the quick launch area into the launcher area (so now there were only 4 items in quick launch). Then I created a Web Page for Google Calendar (just go to the web on your Pre and go to your Google calendar) and then dragged that Web Page that I created into my quick launch area. Now when I make changes I do it on the Google calendar from quick launch and I can still use the Pre calendar to see all of my calendars but if I have to make changes to my calendar I do them on the Google calendar or at home on Outlook. I spent hours trying different software methods. I did not try CompanionLink since I had already purchase gSyncit but I did a trial of PocketMirror and it worked great…just no syncing to Google calendar). I think that until WebOS is updated these problems will continue since I believe it is a problem between the Pre calendar and Google calendar. With this method (at least so far), I can still use my gSyncit to sync Outlook and Google and have calendar and contacts sync to the Pre!
