I have tablet (Android 4.0.3) with "Android ICS calendar" and I want to synchronize it with my google account.

In "Accounts and synchronization" menu I have my google account, but in details i can only choose synchronization for Books, Gmail, Google Reader, Internet and Contacts.

Do I have to install some other tool?

EDIT: Ok, Currently I have:

  • Android ICS calendar 4.0.3-eng.root.20120523.181717

  • Android ICS calendar 4.0.3

  • Business Calendar Free

  • Jorte 1.4.6

  • Checkmark Callendar 2.4

And like @Christian wrote first one (first two) are unsupported by google. So which one is supported - i mean which on i have to install to get sync option in "Accounts and synchronization" menu?

Founded ugly workaround (link).

Add exchange account:

Now I can sync calendar - but only first one :/.

Still looking for a proper solution.

Install Google Calendar official app, available for devices running Android 4.0.3 and later.

Tablet with Google Calendar

Do you mean this app, Android 4 ICS Calendar?

If so, it's probably unsupported by Google Sync. Wasn't there any calendar app preinstalled on your tablet?

He didn't mention any apps? – Richard Borcsik Jul 6 '12 at 18:55
Yes he did, "Android ICS calendar". – Christian Brüggemann Jul 6 '12 at 19:03
I meant third party ones, not preinstalled – Richard Borcsik Jul 6 '12 at 20:14
Yes. This one was preinstalled. But i was able to install another version of this app. So now I have two versions: "4.0.3-eng.root.20120523.181717" and "4.0.3". But as I see any this app (and few others too that I tried) uses account defined in "Accounts and synchronization", and there a can't choose calendar sync. – Pawel Jul 6 '12 at 20:52

It only works if you have a gmail account.

The OP says he can sychronize Gmail so I think he does have a Gmail account. – THelper Nov 7 '12 at 13:40

You have to download the Google Calendar app for your android default app can sync with your online gmail account.

The Google Calendar app cannot be downloaded, it's already integrated into the default app (as a calendar provider). – ce4 Dec 21 '12 at 0:27

I found the solution here:

Basically you use your gmail user name and password & when it asks for your server information use
