Hints of Syncing LG Android Calendar to Mac iCal: LG Phone Problem and Solution

Event information will automatically refresh every five minutes.  You can change this interval by opening the iCal > Preferences > Accounts menu and selecting a new refresh interval under the ‘Refresh calendars’ drop-down.  Keep in mind you can also force a refresh by selecting a calendar and pressing the Apple and R keys at the same time.

Calendars that are checked but disabled have already been added to iCal – you can remove them from within iCal.
