    Hi there - noob question.

    I'd love to have Address Book syncing with gMail contacts, and thought I'd got it. Set it up with the built in solution, seemed to work first time and now I can't sync anymore. I create a contact in gMail and it will go to Address Book - but I can't get ones created on the Mac to go to gMail? I can't seem to use iSync anymore either, wont pop up when I click it. Had that syncing with a Nokia phone. The sync icon is in the menu bare all the time - are "sync" and iSync the same thing?

    I've tried Plaxo, same thing. Can't get anything to write TO gMail? And gMail contact creation sucks, so it would be nice to be able to use Address Book.

    What am I not getting?

    Thank you for your reply, but isn't that just for exporting contacts one time? I really want them to stay in sync...

    Not aware of anything that syncs. There are worse things than having to sync your contacts every so often.

    Spanning Sync will do calendars and contacts between your mac and google.

    I'll check out Spanning Sync, thanks for the tip.

    The wierd thing is I have an iPod touch syncing with Nuevasync with no trouble... Sigh.
