    Good evening, folks...

    I've spent the last hour searching for a solution to my problem. Either I've completely missed it... or I'm dumber than I thought.

    When I visit... Settings | Accounts | (my google account)... I have no options to sync my Google contacts or calendar.
    When I visit... Settings | Accounts | (my exchange account)... I have all of these options.

    I stumbled upon a BB10 Tips & Tricks section where it laid out steps to create CalDAV and CardDAV accounts... but I cannot get those to authenticate.

    Where am I going wrong?
    Thank you for your time.

    Yep. I'm dumber than I thought.

    I found that I had to change the Google account setting to allow access to less secure apps. This allowed me to add the CalDAV and CardDAV accounts.

    I take it back. The setting change allowed CardDAV to authenticate and sync. CalDAV still will not authenticate.

    Okay... so here is what worked:

    For CardDAV
    Description: description
    Username: username
    Email Address: username@gmail.com
    Password: *****
    Server Address: www.google.com

    For CalDAV
    Description: description
    Username: username@gmail.com
    Email Address: username@gmail.com
    Password: *****
    Server Address: www.google.com

    Interesting. The url that I posted is working. What's the reason for changing it?

    NVM, you had it fixed already. I missed that part first time around.

    The url I posted is the url that is used when you add a Google account and use Google provided settings.
