    I initially used Google Synch to synch my contacts from my Blackberry to Gmail to the Droid. I have not synched since. I keep my contacts in Address Book on my Mac. How do you synch from Address Book to Gmail and to the Droid?

    Thanks.

    Can you export your contacts from Address Book to a .CSV file? Then import them to gmail. I'm not sure if that would work for ya but maybe its worth a shot.

    It does work. I currently have my address book (and subsequently mail) app, gmail account and mo'droid all sync'd up. The only caveat is that you will need to manually sync (using isync) on your desktop. You could probably automate it to run at a set interval but I havent gotten that far yet.

    I also needed to run the terminal command found in this response
