Google calendar sync with Mac/iPhone

For those having troubles syncing a Google account in a Mac or iPhone for syncing the calendar, here goes a tip:

open Calendar, and go to Calendar > Add Account > Add CalDAV Account.  Set Account Type = Manual and set Server Address =, and use your Google User Name and Password.

Worked like a charm for me as my Google account didn’t want to validate on my Mac and sync was broken. On my iPhone I was still using the deprecated exchange service. Changed all to a standard CalDAV service with as server address and all worked like a charm. Thanks Ben Blazak!
