Setting up Silent Sync

Currently, Silent Sync will only synchronize the calendar, and will only synchronize it with Google Calendar.

Setting up your phone

First, you will need to connect your phone to the computer. Please see the list of phones page for instructions on how to set up your specific phone model, or check the Bluetooth page if you're planning on using Bluetooth.

Setting up Silent Sync

Make sure your phone is connected to your PC. You will need to know the name of the COM port your phone is connected on. On Silent Sync's first tab, click Add Port and enter the name of the port.

Silent Sync Add Port

Once you click OK, Silent Sync will attempt to discover your phone. If that succeeds, a configuration dialog will appear. You must fill in the Login, Password and Feed URL fields (see below); you can leave the others as default. Click OK.

That's it! Silent Sync will now connect to your phone and copy all meetings to your specified Google Calendar calendar.

Consult the next section for a complete overview of all settings.

How do I find my Feed URL?

Each of your calendars on Google Calendar has an address called the Feed URL. It contains a long code that works like a password: any application that has that password can manipulate the calendar. Be careful with your private feed URL.

Google Calendar
listTo find the feed URL, log in to Google Calendar, click Manage Calendars, then create a new calendar or select an existing one. If you are already using a Google Calendar calendar, I recommend creating a separate calendar for the appointments synchronized from your phone. On the calendar settings page, scroll down to Private Address and click the XML button. Paste this URL into the Feed URL field.
