Hi, why do i get this question of another user? 

By the way, I do like to learn about your solution, for me and many others  (now that the dropbox conection is broken) the repair will be vcrucial.

I was heavenly relying on the dropbox connection to sync overmultiple devices....

Good day guys,

new API from Dropbox finally implemented and all seems to work as before ( as expected ). We planned new version in more then two weeks ago, but mainly because of this problem, I'll try to speed it up as much as possible.

Thanks for understanding and sorry for a complications.

Aloha, I have continued to try to export kmz files from Locus Pro to Dropbox and I am still getting the v1_retired error. I even tried exporting the gpx to Dropbox as recommended below but still getting error. Do I just need to reinstall Locus Pro and start over or is there another way to trouble shoot? Thank you.

Hi Jill

Which version are you running ?

Are you sure to have updated to the latest 3.26.2 ?

Everything is fine on my side.


By the way, many thanks Menion & team.

All best.

Thank you! It does look like I have Locus Pro version 3.10.3. This may be a silly question but can I just update to the newest version or do I have to uninstall and then reinstall version 3.26.2? I would like to not lose my data if possible (even though I have saved the files I need).


Thank you!

Hello Jill,

version you are using is currently more then two years old! Update should cause no troubles, but to be sure, you may do full backup in Locus > menu > more > backup manager and then backup on PC whole "Locus" directory from your device.

In case of any troubles with this, feel free to create a new topic here on help desk, I'll gladly help.
