After a little research, it looks like there arent many options for syncing Outlook data directly to the DX (unless its synced thru google online).
companionlink appears to do a direct usb sync to the phone, avoiding the google calendar. However it costs $50 and the reviews are mixed. A few other calendar apps replace the DX calendar app, but still use the google calendar db.
Please let me know if you are aware of any other PIM apps, that will sync with Outlook on the pc, and that dont require google calendar to be used. Id rather not store all of my personal data online if possible.
