How to synchronize address book with the FRITZ!Box telephone book

Connect the Fritz!Box to the eclipso address book via CardDav and synchronize your contacts. Current versions of the FRITZ!Box (e.g. 7590) with the appropriate firmware (from 7.20) offer the possibility to set up multiple phonebooks and synchronize contacts with your eclipso address book via CardDav.
