    I'm unable to sync w/ google calendar when I added a sports calendar. It won't show up in my droid calendar when I synced. Anyone has the same problem?

    went to the Google Forum to post same question, many others posted similar questions but each of them have had no replys. Must be tough question..

    Also noticed: These options

    Sync with Microsoft Mobile
    Sync with Iphone
    But no Sync with Droid option, did they forget their a big part of the Droid experience?

    I found a work around...I created a new sports calendar and imported iCal file then synced to my droid. Google calendar really rocks...and I added bunch of different calendar such as personal, school dates, family important dates like birthdays, etc and sport teams.

    Doesn't make any sense. I'm able to view a colleague's calendar which is shared through google calendars, but not the other ones available from Google? (sports team schedules, stardates, holidays, etc...)

    Go to your fav sports team website like NY Rangers and download schedule in CSV or iCal format depending on if you use PC or Mac then go to Google calendar and create a new calendar under My calendars and name it NY Rangers. Put a dummy event and set the calendar option to NY Rangers. Go to settings and select calendars tab then click on import calendar link and choose a file that you downloaded either csv or iCal file and select NY Rangers in calendar option then click on Import button. You should see all of the NY Rangers events. Hope this helps.

    When you put te sports calendar overlay on your Gmail calendar it won't sync, cause its an overlay. There is an option to add each event to your calendar then it will sync. Just play with it. Takes 2 mouse clicks to add them.

    I just went through the same thing. If you click the sporting event it gives you the option to copy to your calendar. So I did each one separately. After that turn off the sporting calendar feature so you don't have doubles on your computer calendar. It bites doing them one at a time. But not too bad. Certainly with hockey's long season.

    Yes. Once the schedule is on your Google calendar on your PC, click on each event. It will give you the option to copy to your calendar. Once you do, each event will show up twice on your calendar on your PC, but only once on your phone. So than you can unsubscribe to leave just the events you copied to your calender.

    Sinking calendar

    Re: how to sync google calendar with DROID
    Select which application to synchronize such as calendar

    1. From the Home screen, press the Menu key
    2. Touch Settings
    3. Touch Accounts & synchronization

      Note: By default, all personal information in Gmail, Calendar, and Contacts will sync whenever you make a change or receive a new message.
    4. Select the Google Apps you want to synchronize.
    Tip Select Auto-sync to automatically synchronize all applications. When Auto-sync is disabled, you can synchronize individual applications manually by selecting their respective check boxes.

    The problem is that sports events do not sync even when this is done properly. As others have stated to get the sports calendars to sync you have to individually copy each event to your google calendar which is more often than not too much of a hassle to deal with.

    I just noticed this too. More than a little annoying, to be honest. Would be nice if a solution to this could be found or made.
