10. The iPod as Personal Assistant > The iPod as Calendar

The iPod as Calendar

Just as iTunes can pluck contacts out of your computer’s address book, so it can snag and sync a copy of your desktop’s daily or monthly schedule to your iPod Touch, Classic, or older click-wheel Nano—if you use Outlook on your PC or iCal on your Mac. (You can also use Entourage 2004 or later by choosing, in Entourage, Preferences→Sync Services and turning on the option to have Entourage share events with iCal.)

To get your calendar connected, fire up iTunes and then follow these steps:

  1. Connect your iPod to your computer and click the iPod’s icon when it shows up in the Source list.

  2. In the main part of the iTunes window, click the Info tab. Scroll down past Contacts to Calendars.

  3. Turn on the checkbox next to “Sync calendars from Microsoft Outlook” (Windows) or “Sync iCal calendars” (Mac). If you have multiple calendars, select the ones you want to copy.
