    Why was the flight “Trapped” within TripIt? You just subscribe to the iCal feed from TripIt or have the TripIt app (assuming you have a supported device). I haven’t had to use anything but the built in sync from the device supplied software for ages.

    Sync is a _hard_ problem to solve which is why no one really does it that well. So the best thing to do is pick your devices and apps to solve the problems you have without having to resort to any trickery.

    Hey Glen – trapped because I use a windows mobile device which will only sync one single calendar from google. Yes I could go to the tripit site on my device but that is problematic from a connectivity perspective…
