    Hi

    I have just set up a google calendar, added the google account to my ipad and all seemed to be syncing nicely across the air. However I have since added some new calandars (ie categories, home, social etc) to my google calendar (I did that on my pc) and the categories are not showing on my ipad. I have tried removing the account and reinstalling it. No difference. I tried following a link to googlesync to use that and was told my device doesnt support it (it's an ipad not an ipad 2 and wifi is connected okay)


    Please can anyone help?

    TIA, Ruth

    You need to go to m.google.com/sync and manage your device to make sure all your calendars are set to sync.

    Strange, I have a iPad 1 and it works for me. What version if iOS are you using?

    You are visiting the site in safari on your iPad aren't you?

    Also how have you set your google account up on the iPad? I think it might have to be setup as an exchange account.

    Hi and thanks for further reply. I have a ipad 1 and I am trying to look at the calendar on the device not in safari. I will try looking at it in safari now, but it's not the point is it? have been looking around on the net and it seems only the primary calendar will show. Here's an interesting post attempting to bypass the issue but it looks a bit risky/techy for me.

    How to Sync Multiple Calendars to the iPad With Google Sync — Mobile Technology News


    The calendars are all showing automatically on my htc wildfire phone.

    I used with caldav when I added the account to my ipad, suggested on a web posting. It worked fine, but as I say only the prinmary calendar is showing.

    Yes they are showing if I open the calendar in safari but no luck with the calendar function.

    I don't think it's supported.

    I don't know the IOS, how do I find out? It's 59gb 3G ipad bought Sep'10.

    Goto settings - general - about on the iPad and post your version number. Mines 4.3.4. It should work for you and the only reason I can think it says not supported is because your on an older version of iOS.

    This is frustrating. I have now tried just about everything including reloading with microsoft exchange rather than caldav, then selecting all the calendars in m.google/sync to show. They still DO nOT show on the ipad calendar so I have put an icon on the screen to shortcut to the clendar via safari. This does the job in that I can access it on my ipad but I have to be connected to the net of course so it's not quite ideal. if anyone out there can suggest another way or confirm that it is impossible to see more than the primary calendar in ipad calendar, it would be very illuminating!
