I can’t find any argument to recommend this expensive software.
It became obsolete as Siemens offers now - for free - their « QuickSync » application.
« QuickSync » is a bit slow, but works fine, will even upgrade the firmware of your DECT-Phone and will sync your Mac not only with the nice Gigaset SL910 series, but also with older models (Bluetooth and/or USB required) and desktop phones like DX600, DX800 (well, for the latter you may use also your WiFi if you want to perform a more sophisticated setup).
On my Macs, which are powered with a Swiss French OSX, « GigaSync » installs in Dutch; there is no way to change this in the preferences…
Can I add that the App Store erases negative comments about « GigaSync » ?
And that « gigasync » is a Trademark owned by the Isola Group ?

In my eyes this is more a proof of concept than a real software.

Cryptic errors, no real help, no good documentation... Only basic syncing and worst of all: it only handles basic Letters. German umlauts are completely ignored in my tests (names containing umlauts become crippeled).

The programmer was responding my mails but left me with the impression that he would not put much efforts in fixing bugs.

In the meantime Siemens released QuickSync for Mac on their Gigaset homepage. That brand new software syncs much more reliable and also handles ringtones, pictures, etc. and worked very smoothly. - Best of all: QuickSync is free!!!!

Cant sync pictures ringtones etc. Just entries from addressbook.app.

You can also send vcards from your mobile phone to your siemens phone. Bit more work but it is free of course.

Way too expensive for what it does. 10$ is more reasonable.

Hmmm. Now the big question: How does this connect to the phone?!? The secret seems to be, that the software uses bluetooth. BUT the old GigaSets don't have bluetooth. So the software is quite useless. This should be mentioned in the description. How can people otherwise know. And btw: 30$ is a bit too much for this little tool.

I am able to read. And that info was added AFTER I wrote the comment. At that time there were no requirements at all.

Sorry no review - my seimans phone is way to old for this. But thirty bucks, really? This is a non mobile phone right?
