    How do I control which Groups from the address book on my Mac sync to my iPad through

    To avoid duplicates, following advice on this site I turned off the Sync Address Book Contacts in iTunes and rely on to do the syncing. However, I'm not getting the contact groups I want on the iPad and some I don't.

    The only place where I can see making a choice of which groups to sync is in iTunes -- can't fine it in or on any other preference.

    What am I missing?

    As far as I can tell, syncing contacts through is an all or nothing deal. If you want to selectively sync contact groups, it appears that yoo should turn off syncing with and sync with your computer onlly. The key to avoiding duplicates is to sync with only one source. It shouldn't matter if the source is or your computer.

    That said, it's odd that you are currently missing some groups, since if you are syncing with, then all your contacts should show up on your iPad. I'd try going to through the web browser on your computer, to check that all your groups are synced there.
