Syncing multiple Google calendars to iPhone
Posted 20 December 2010 - 01:37 PM
Weird thing though, I'm not seeing my other google calendars in the calendar app.
I remember it working on my 3GS back in February. Now on my new iPhone 4 it doesn't seem work instantly. Had to reboot my iPhone.
But it works ...

Yeah, but with caveats…
Pros - on the iPhone you’ll get multiple alerts and at least 5 color-coordinated calendars.
Cons - on the iPhone events synching down from the cloud will not update immediately but rather randomly. My main worry/gripe with Google CalDAV is that alarms don’t translate between Google Calendar and CalDAV - GCal events don’t translate to GCalDAV; alert(s) in your iPhone will show up in iCal and vice-versa, but not in GCal or other devices talking to your account via Gmail (Android/WebOS devices come to mind - and your cloud space), *and* vice-versa - GCal alarms won’t show up in your devices talking to your account via CalDAV.
I use a Palm Pre Plus on VZW and an iPhone, along with iCal to talk to my Google Apps. There isn’t a perfect means to use Google’s implementation of CalDAV which to me is pretty maddening. I have to verify everything I generate if I want to use GCalDAV or put up with at least a few delegate calendars with identical coloring if I use GCal Activesync. Sigh. Hey, at least we have options, right?

You can set the account up as a Google Account instead of Microsoft Exchange (which helps if the accounts were previously added). This option will only sync one calendar initially. To get more calendars synced to the phone visit this url and select the calendars you want to sync:
