Sync Google Calendar with iPod

If you use Outlook 2007, Google Calendar and iTunes and own an iPod – this tip might be helpful to the two of you. It’s not really anything new… but I didn’t think Outlook would share calendars that it’s subscribed to… Fortunately, it does.

  1. In Google Calendar go to Settings > Calendars. Choose a Calendar from those available to you. This will bring you to a Calendar Details screen.
  2. At the very bottom, you’ll see options for Public and Private Addresses for calendars. Right-click on the iCal button and copy the link location.
  3. Paste the link location into your browser’s address bar.
  4. Replace http:// with webcal://
  5. Hit enter.
  6. This should bring you into Outlook 2007 where you can subscribe to your Google Calendar.
  7. Your Google Calendar should now be available in Outlook!
  8. Open iTunes and plug your iPod into your computer.
  9. If your iPod supports it, your iPod settings will have a Contacts tab available to you.
  10. Under Calendar, select Sync calendars from Microsoft Outlook. If you don’t use Outlook’s calendar – choose ‘Selected calendars:’ and choose your Google Calendar(s) from the list.
  11. Hit apply… now every time you sync your iPod, you’ll pull down your calendars as well!

This tip would probably work similarly on the Mac by using Apple’s iCal app.
