Bluepen61 is correct.  Google Calendar Sync has been discontinued. Existing users can continue to use it however (without support).  It is no longer available for download for new users..  http://googleblog.blogspot.ca/2012/12/winter-cleaning.html

Re: How To Get Your Outlook Calendar On Nook

The Missing Sync for Andriod which I mentioned earlier still works great. I use it to sync my Outlook Calendar, Contacts, Note, etc with my phone as well as my Nook. You have to buy the desktop part - whichi is now only $30, but the corresponding apps for your mobile devices are free. I've been using it since it first came out and it's been very reliable.

Re: How To Get Your Outlook Calendar On Nook

I was able to sync with MissingSync, however, not properly.  For the recurring events that have long ended, probably due to ending a previously forever event, MissingSync shows events still going on well into the future.  It appears MissingSync does not understand recurring events well.


I then tried out CompanionLink.  It worked well, but require separate Calender app as it does not sync to native database.  And it's also expensive at $50 ($40 with special coupon).  

 

The other day, while searching for WM8 Outlook sync solution for my Nokia 1020, I found a hidden gem in Akruto (www.akruto.com).  At $25, it syncs to any WM8 or Android devices in native format.  If you have a big Outlook database like me, it will take a while for initial sync (took me 10hrs).  But it syncs beautifully - proper recurring event handling, full database sync, and to native mobile database.  Subsequent sync takes minutes.  And did I say one app for both OS that lacks built-in cloudless Outlook sync?

Re: How To Get Your Outlook Calendar On Nook

For some reason, Nook sync is extremely slow compare to other devices.  My Nokia Lumia 1020 took 10hr to sync 20k records, but Nook took 9 days!  It processes at speed of 100 records per hour, even though I installed app to keep Nook's WiFi constantly on.  However, the ability to use build-in Calendar application, and other apps that make use of build-in Calendar database, outweights the slowness in initial sync.  Subsequent sync is bearable, as I don't change more than 10-20 records per day, which translates to a 5-10min sync.  As the sync is "push", I hardly notice it.
