    Google Calendar & Contacts Not Syncing

    Just noticed that my Emails, Contacts and Calendars Appointments were no longer syncing to my Google account on my new Kindle Fire 8.9. After a day or so, emails started to sync up and now that's fine, but Calendar and Contact adds & updates are still not working.

    Call Amazon and they said that due to a change at Google, their bundled apps (email, contacts and calendar) have all stopped working. Recently, email is back syncing but the other are still out of commission. This is a source of frustration as I depend heavily on all of these components to be in sync at all times. At this point since Amazon has not committed to any estimated time to fix and distribute the update, I am thinking of just getting rid of this unit, which I really like, and going to a Nexus 10.

    Anyone else experience this?

    Re: Google Calendar & Contacts Not Syncing

    I had this problem setting up gmail account on new Kindle.
    Here is what Kindle support gave me. Worked fine.

    Connect to a Wi-Fi network.

    2. On the Home screen, swipe down from the top and select More. Tap Device. Tap ON to turn on Allow Installation of Applications from unknown sources. Tap OK on the warning dialog box that pops up. Don’t worry! You will turn off this feature once update is completed.

    3. On the Home screen, tap Web. Enter url address
    http://bit.ly/0018580031

    and select Go. When you open the web url link in the Silk Web browser, the update downloads automatically.

    4. Swipe down from the top of the screen to see the notification bar. You should be able to see the update downloading. Once it completes, tap Email.Apk. Tap OK on the “Replace application” dialog box that follows.

    5. Tap Install on bottom right on the “Do you want to install this application?” screen, update will then download. Tap Done after application installed.

    6. On the Home screen, swipe down from the top and select More. Tap Applications. Tap Installed Applications. Tap Email. Verify version number is 1.04_104003110.

    7. On the Home screen, swipe down from the top and select More. Tap Device. Tap OFF to turn off Allow Installation of Applications from unknown sources.

    8. On the Home screen, tap Apps. Tap Device. Tap Email. Select Gmail from the list of account, and then enter the requested information. With the email app update you should not have to edit any server information.

    Carrbonman, you are brilliant! This solved my problem. I did talk with Amazon support, Kindle specialist...he didn't suggest this. Maybe they should use this forum!

    Re: Google Calendar & Contacts Not Syncing

    MaryC, I can not take credit for this.
    I got it from Amazon tech support........
    BUT, not before going around the horn w/their
    tech support through chat. I can make a SWAG,
    they are all in a "foreign" land.

    It was only after I called and got a really
    person in "not a foreign" land, that I got
    some actual help.

    Such is the computer industry today.

    Go the distance!

    Hi, I was able to sync my calendar using your instructions in May 2013 but now it isn't syncing anymore. I tried to sync again using the same instructions, but I am now getting the following error msg when entering the url... http://bit.ly/0018580031 ... it changes to https://s3.amazonaws.com/kindle-pim/...0031/Email.apk

    This is the message I get::

    This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
    <Error><Code>AccessDenied</Code><Message>Access Denied</Message><RequestId>467496B55ED286A0</RequestId><HostId>BnzHK817Vkcfcnxmka84koQFdeMw1kWo 8uOdzxWNK71rVqDLBnA0+XZCwG2yLdSu</HostId></Error>

    Help?
