    My iphone and google contacts sync well. now i'm trying to sync my Address Book on my Macbook Pro with google contacts and nothing happens. I've entered my email and PW in preferences too.

    Anyone know how it's done?

    In Gmail

    Go to Contacts->Export->select Vcard as format.

    In Address book, just import the file you've created...

    Open up Address Book and select "Sync with Google". Enter info and done.

    4.1.2 is Leopard? If so, if you have an iPhone, that "Sync with Google" shows up in the preferences.

    Yes, Leopard. So it's an iPhone thing? The OP wasn't syncing an iPhone, they were looking to sync their MBP...

    EDIT:

    Never mind, see they WERE using an iPhone. My apologies...

    It's not really an iPhone thing. In leopard, the feature to sync with google gets activated when you have an iphone. Otherwise theres a plist change that'll work. Search it up on google.
