    I have managed to make my Passport sync Google Contacts again for my work accounts with the recently changed server. It was a simple case of changing the server address in Account Settings.

    However, the Playbook refuses to set up a CardDav access to https://www.googleapis.com/.well-known/carddav

    Has anyone had any success with Playbook and Google contacts?

    Are you signed out of Google? It's a step to try when it's not working - https://forums.crackberry.com/showth...1#post13355917

    I have repeatedly tried to set up Contacts on my Passport to no avail following the guides above, and for some reason, this piece of advice seems to work:

    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/...ts-carddav-url

    Ie I used https://www.googleapis.com/carddav/v.../lists/default

    and it worked.

    Thanks, you are right this works on the Passport.... unfortunately on the Playbook it doesn't work with this server either. I also found out that the browser can't log in to Google any more either as it is impossible to type in the text boxes!

    I need to try this on my PlayBook when I have a moment. It seemed to work fine a few months ago or so

    Same issue here. No problems with Gmail and Google Calendar but Google Contacts can not be set up on my Playbook using the method which works for BB10 devices (Passport here).

    Well, another small step to "unconnected" tablet? On the other hand, is it really a bad thing today....
    It seems odd but I like my older devices as Walkman A867 because they have no Internet connection.

    Just wondering anyone had ever managed to get their GMail contacts syncing on a Playbook? I tried again today but the BB10 server settings using https://www.googleapis.com/carddav/v.../lists/default don't work

    I'm using this on both BB10 based Passport and Classic and it works:

    Sadly I can't get it to work using the same settings as on the Passport. The browser authentification page simply won't come up.

    I've also tried setting up the email account first and CardDav account later. No luck.

    It must be an authentication issue.

    I tried to load contacts.google.com on the PlayBook stock browser and couldn't even type in the email address.
