Windows 7: What is the best way to sync my contacts in Outlook to gmail account?

What is the best way to sync my contacts in Outlook to gmail account?

I currently have a (free) gmail account. I use Microsoft Outlook (2010) to manage emails. I have an iphone and ipad that are linked to my gmail account. What I am trying to figure out is how to sync Outlook with gmail and therefore my iphone/ipad. Email already syncs but not contacts. I tried to download Google Apps Sync but apparently need a paid google biz account. When I tried to sign up for this it set me up with a new email address which I do not want. Is there a simpler way to do this? My goal is to update a contact in Outlook and have it automatically sync to gmail and then my iphone/ipad. Thanks - Katie

Hello kcolbert and welcome to Seven Forums.

Would Google Sync work for you?

Google Sync

Here's some more info about syncing Outlook contact to Gmail:

Transfer contacts between Outlook and Google Gmail - Outlook - Office.com

Google Groups

And this paid (not-for-free) 3rd party app may be worth the money.
