If Locus Pro is installed can Locas Free be uninstalled

I installed Locus Pro now both Locus Free and Locus Pro are installed. Do they both have to be installed (which takes up space and requires both to update which seems to be a waste of time).

Hi alias4rva-


Locus Free and Locus Pro are seperate programs, so Locus Free can be uninstalled. One way to tell is to look at the program size for each version on Android Market. Locus Free is listed at 5.49 MB, and Locus Pro is listed at 5.50 MB. Nearly identical. If Locus Pro were simply a key that unlocked certain features of Locus Free, it`s size would be small, on the order of Kilobytes.


As always, it would be a good idea to first make backup copies of your waypoints and tracks. Have fun with Pro.


Regards,


Starman

Thanks Starman, perfect answer :). I`ll only say that Free and Pro version share all data, except "Settings". Things you set in program settings are unique to both versions. Maps, POI, tracks ... all are shared!
