New Phone

I have to get a new phone, I already have Locus Pro on the phone that I am using now.

Is there a way to transfer the licence?

How do I get my Locus Pro on my new phone?

I purchased from the Goggle App store.


I have downloaded some maps, can they be moved or do I need to down load them again?


I searched for this but did not find anything.


Thanks for the help.


Regards

Dave

why you ask twice?

and yes, you can copy maps, but note the folder maps/mapsVector

Hello Dave,

license is linked with your google account. So you can install Locus again on new device without purchasing. Please see:

And you can also manually move maps from old to new device (preserve the folder structure)

Google Play requiring me to pay again for the App when I try to install it on a new phone using the same google acct.

Question, is there a download link for the app and a way for me to associate the app with my new phone. I have already purchased the app and only want to use it on my new phone.

Hi,

it's not needed to pay twice for Locus Map app. You only need to use the same Google account on the new phone. Please see article below for more info: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:new_device_do_i_have_to_pay_again

Best regards

I had already found and read that article. It didn't resolve my issue.

I guess my understanding to "add your email account" might be different that the article. The article does not state were to add the google account. So, I assumed it is referencing the one associated with my android phone which it currently is. Am I a to "add" the account somewhere else?
