Part 6. Organizing Your Life > Syncing a PDA, an iPod, or a Phone with Your Mac

Syncing a PDA, an iPod, or a Phone with Your Mac

Start up iSync (located in the Applications folder) and click the icon for the device you want to sync.

If this is the first time you're syncing, click each device icon and choose an option from the For first sync pop-up menu.

Click the Contacts check box to include contacts in the sync, and choose which groups to include from the Synchronize pop-up menu.

INTRODUCTION

If you use a Palm or another device that can interact with your Mac, you're definitely going to want to sync that device with iCal and Address Book. The procedure is a bit different for Palms and for devices other than Palms, but in either case it takes only a few steps. Here's how to get started.


TIP

Getting Hooked Up with iSync

You can download iSync at www.apple.com/isync/. To add a device to iSync, hook it up to your Mac and start iSync. Choose Devices, Add Device. Double-click the new device when it appears in the Add Device window.


Click the Calendars check box to include calendars in the sync, and choose which calendars to include.

To sync all devices other than a Palm device, click Sync Now to begin the sync process.

To sync all devices, including a Palm PDA, start a HotSync by pushing the Palm's HotSync button.
