1) import the GPX into Locus (http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:tracks:import)

2) open detail of the imported track and select "Create copy" from the bottom tool menu (http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:tracks:management#track_route_detail_screen)

3) tap "Change route orientation (reverse) in the copy dialog

1) find the route in the folder and tap it

2) tap the tool menu in the bottom right corner and select "Create copy":

3) check "Change direction (reverse)" and confirm. The reversed route is in the the same folder as original (unless you changed it):

Thank you. I understand now that one can't simply reverse an existing route but only create a new reversed copy (and then delete the original if it's unnecessary). That will work for me just fine, but you must admit that that's not exactly a "self explanatory" approach... 😬

Sonja, if you want to be guided along a route in reversed direction, you don't have to make a copy of it. Just check "guide reversely" when starting guidance:

Oh, ok.

But I wanted to SAVE it that way as I planned it the wrong way around and don't want to forget that fact (which is quite possible as it will be a while until I'll get there).
