Gmail contact – Apple Address Book sync stinks

Maybe it’s me, but I can’t seem to make Google Mail Conacts sync with Apple Address boook  in an efficient manner.

I got frustrated with the way it was working and tried the following, as it seemed logical:

  1. Exported (saved) all my google contacts, and all my apple address book contacts before starting.
  2. Deleted all google contacts
  3. Uploaded the apple address book contacts to Google
  4. Tried to sync them.

Apple Sync services tells me I have 2350 new contacs to add and 324 that will be modified. WHAT? I uploaded the contacts. they should be 100% the same.


UPDATE: Yes, I did read and a bunch of the discussions on the help board.
