ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Only Syncs 2 Weeks to a Month Worth of Gmail Calendar on Android Calendar

The ASUS Eee Pad Transformer running Android (Honeycomb) seems to have a problem syncing with Gmail for it’s calendar. It only grabs 2 weeks to 1 months worth of calendar data. Learn how to sync your full Gmail calendar with the ASUS Android calendar.

If you are using Google’s Calendar Sync to put Outlook’s calendar into Gmail, then ASUS’ Eee Pad to pull the calendar data down from Gmail’s calendar with a sync, it sometimes only pulls two weeks to one months worth of calendar data. This is how to get all of the Gmail calendar data to sync on the ASUS Eee Pad running Android.

Some people have had success by making sure the time zone on the tablet and the time zone in the Google calendar are both set to the same time zone, but this only really fixes when calendar entries are showing up for the wrong time, not for when they aren’t there at all. The calendar syncing problem existed on early Android phones and the fix then was to change your date back to a month proir to your earliest date, and re-syncing, which also works now with the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer running Android (Honeycomb).

Here is the process:

1. Set the date back to a month prior to today’s date on your tablet.
2. Goto > Settings-Applications-Manage Applications-All
3. Find “Calendar Storage” and hit “Clear Data”
4. Goto “Accounts & Sync” and choose your google account.
5. Hit the Sync button in upper right corner. Let it finish.

Now at this point reset your tablet date back to the actual date, and perform the Sync again. It will take longer this time depending on how much calendar data needs to be transfered to your tablet from your Google Gmail calendar. Your calendar should now be fully synced.
