A Google Calendar Palm Pilot Solution


After just a couple of weeks at GVSU, I've decided that I don't like Novell Groupwise. Palm Desktop software seems a much more user friendly calendar and contact management program. So since I recently ditched my Treo phone in favor of Motorola V915, I have to find an alternative calendar and contact information. I had high hopes for the Motorola Phone Tools application so I could sync calendar and contact information, but it basically sucks unless you use MS Outlook. The desktop interface is just crappy, so bad that I can't believe that they sell it. It's really not worth anything more beyond using it to back up the phone contact list.

So it's back to Palm with a new Zire 22. Now I'm looking at how I can create the best syncing and access solution. Palm Desktop works great on the PC and iCalendar will sync with it via the Mac G5 in my office. What would round this out nicely is if I could get Google Calendar to sync with everything so that my calendar is available when I've forgotten to carry my Zire, and eventually, move toward syncing my phone.

It's possible to subscribe to a Google Calendar with iCal. CompanionLink for Google Calendar may be able to sync with my mobile phone and/or the Palm Desktop, but it costs money. And then there is GCalSync, an open source app that may let Google Calendar sync with my phone. Syncplicity is another potential option (when it's available). Anyone have any other application recommendations in this regard?
