    I have recently switched from iPhone to Galaxy Nexus and I have an issue getting my gmail contacts to sync correctly with my address book on my iMac.
    The problem is that I have many groups set up on my gmail account but when I sync (automatically) only the contacts sync not the groups......does it mean that I have to create the groups manually or am I doing soothing wrong??

    If you read through Google's online help for contact synching, you'll find that they specifically say that synching groups isn't yet supported, but they intend to add it eventually.

    In the mean time, it appears that there are 3rd party contact synchronization services that claim to include groups and do both Google Contacts and the Mac Address Book, but I know nothing about them so don't want to try to make suggestions.
