As many people have noted, syncing to Google is delayed and unpredictable. It appears that the only way to reliably and quickly sync the Pre calendar to Google is to do a "Sync Now", which seems to happen instantly. Since this is the best way to sync, it would help if there was a "Sync Now" button or something right on the calendar screen. Instead, you have to tap on the menu, tap on "Preferences & Accounts" and scroll down to the bottom of the screen to sync.

On a related note, I did a DTA when I set up my phone. Now there are duplicate entries for everything that was on my Palm Desktop calendar. The dups are the entries in Palm Profile. Does anyone know how to get rid of them? Also, are they the only calendar entries in my Palm Profile? How can you check what's in Palm Profile?
