    Oh, haha, you have to create a google calendar first.

    It's even easier in 4.0.2, you choose "google" from the drop down menu, and you only enter email address and password, and the rest is auto filled.
    This just gets the google calendar onto my mac, but not my mac calendar onto my google. How to I get all my existing ical events onto my google calendar? When I click "refresh all" the only thing I see is the gmail-subscribed calendar on the left. There's no other calendars to choose from. Help!

    Thanks all!

    i believe theres no simple way to do this. you can publish your existing ical calendars and share it online though the easiest way to do that would be via a paid mobile me account.

    what i did was make a cutoff for new entries so all my new calendar events would sync to google calendar. with this, you can create all new entries via ical under google calendar on the left pane... this way, these would sync to the cloud... then to your android device.

    ical can export existing calendars.. but i just checked... the file extension (ics) is something thats not supported by google calendar's import (csv). havnt really checked thoroughly though as of the moment.... there still might be a way.

    ...any thoughts from others?

    You can import .ics in google calender.

    INSTRUCTIONS: How to 3-Way Sync the iPhone, iCal, and Google Calendar - Calendar Help

    I did this, but I then after importing the .ics into google calendar, I then got rid of my local calendar in ical, then I only use my caldav google calendar on my computer's ical. I now have two way sync between google calendar and icalendar.
