How do you sync your Outlook contacts with Gmail?

What free (or better, open source) applications do you know of to keep outlook and Gmail contacts in sync? I need my outlook and Gmail accounts to be in sync, since my phone can only connect to Gmail...

I've tried GO Contact Sync, but it won't preserve categories, and I also tried Gcontactsynchbut it seems outdated. Google Apps Sync is only for paying users, and Chapura too.

Any application out there that does great sync between gmail and outlook? Thanks!

Go Contact Sync does support categories, maybe you misconfigured it of used an outdated version.

Download it from here: http://www.webgear.co.nz/Products/GOContactSync.aspx

And use this tutorial (Scroll down to contacts sync): http://knokio.com/guide/sync-gmail-contacts-and-google-calendar-with-outlook/

It doesn't handle categories well at all: suppose I have 2 categories a and B, and a contact belonging to both. Then in gmail I end with 3 categories, A, B, and A;B. This makes categories useless... Plus, it keeps bugging and failing to connect. –  CFP May 30 '10 at 9:20
