GO Contact Sync Mod synchronizes your Microsoft Outlook contacts with your Google Mail address book, including pictures, categories and notes. Since version 3.5.6 it also syncs your Outlook Notes on demand to Google Documents. This Mod fork adds many enhancements and bug fixes to the obviously dead project 'Go Contact Sync'.

FOR TECH-PASTOR. I ran into the exact same problem. Discovered I had several import groups in my Google contacts that hadn't been merged - I merged these and deleted some unneeded groups, then the sync ran fine. Since I did them at the same time I can't say for certain whether it was the merging or the deleting that solved the problem, but I'd bet on the merging.
I have just bought a Nexus 5 phone to replace my old Motorola Z3, which had quite a messy contacts file with various types of duplication, despite running the fairly good sync program in Motorola Phone Tools ("MPT") in order to sync with Outlook. GO Contact Sync Mod ("GOCSM") has helped me clean up my contacts to a high degree, for which I am very grateful. I have however two issues. (1) GOCSM does not have a feature enabling sync of only selected categories/groups (MPT does have this feature). This has led to my Google Contacts "Import 2013/12/05" category being written to my Outlook Contacts file, which is annoying. Neither Gmail or Outlook appear to have a global facility to remove a category from a group of contacts. (2) Gmail Contacts appears to have system categories "System Group:Family" and "System Group:Friends", which clashed with my own Outlook categories "Family" and "Friends". At one point I had duplicate group names Family and Friends on my Gmail account, which apparently I could only eliminate by doing a reset on my Nexus 5. After syncing, I now have categories "System Group:Family" and "System Group:Friends" in my Outlook contacts - is this really necessary? Apart from the categories/group issue, I think GOCSM is an excellent program.
Excellent software. I would appreciate an option to delete groups that have no (more) categories in Outlook.
