Now I can have Thunderbird, My Moto Q, and Gmail all synced. Sadly Gmail is a little funny in how they handle addresses so that may not sync for you (I have Thunderbird acting as my primary source). Additionally you can only sync one calendar with Google Sync, whatever your primary calendar is, no others. Definite advantage to Nuevasync there, allowing the 1 way sync of multiple calendars and the 2 way sync of one of them.

Nuevasync still seems better to me, seems to handle contact names better to. With Google they go in “Last, First” on my list, with Nuevasync it’s however I have them written out in Gmail/Thunderbird, it even syncs over the contact pictures from Gmail.

No push email yet from either service. If gmail starts offering that I will probably switch to using Google Sync even though it’s not as clean as Nuevasync yet.

Of course, some appointments without time slots (all day appointments in MS Outlook) became duplicates. I’m going to try to Google Sync now.

When I say Multiple Calendars I mean I have 1 GMAIL account… In the Calendar section I have several labels for Calendars. This allows me to visually see say my Work in one color, Personal stuff in another calendar, Workout Schedual in another color etc… All software I have ever used only syncs the very first Calendar that you make in GMAIL Calendars. Anyone done this?
