    I noticed that the Family/Friends/Colleagues groups on Google (the default, unchangeable groups there) aren't synced with my Hero.

    As a work-around I've created 2 new groups, "My Family" and "My Friends", but this is messy (I end up with both "Family" AND "My Family" on gmail, but just "My Family" on my Hero).

    Is there any way to sync those basic 3 groups? Any better solutions?

    You can choose which groups to sync under:

    People -> groups -> menu -> sync groups

    It is also good idea to untick "all contacts" there and leave "my contacts" + selected groups.

    I have also found this a problem, and like you, have created some slighter altered group names for the groups.

    Yes, but the default fixed Gmail groups "Family", "Friends" and "Colleagues" aren't listed here, so I *can't* sync them.
