Hi and Welcome to the Community!

 

Unless you are a Google Apps paid subscriber, or happened to first integrate this device to Google many months ago (before Google cutoff support), your email settings are not at all relevant to your Google calendar and contacts. Rather, you need to configure CalDav and CardDav:

Good luck!

Great. That seems to have worked.

 

How can I do the same for my gmail contacts?

 

Many thanks

I'm glad that worked, for calendar at least. I searched the KBs for an article about CardDav, but was not successful...you might be more lucky than I, or you may just try to integrate Google Contacts via CardDav and see if you can succeed.

Good luck!
