Dear Sir,

I refer to your advice http:--docs.locusmap.eu-doku.php?id=manual:faq:move_to_new_device_sd_card.

What do you mean by "install the latest version of Locus Map to the new device"?

Should I install by means of Google Play Store ?

Thanks,

Ghislain della Faille

By the way, in 2013, I went to Jerusalem from Brussel, cycling about 4.500 Kms, with 6 friends . We were very happy. It was a success thanks to Locus Pro.

Now, I've purchased a new Samsung tablet and I intend going from Virton (BE) to Lourdes (FR).

Dear Ghislain della Faille.

Thank you for your email.

Exactly, it means install Locus from Google Play store. But first add your Google account to your tablet.

In case of troubles, please, contact me.

Kind regards

Dear Hana,

Thank you for your help.

Now I've another problem.

When purchasing my new tablet I didn't pay attention enough to the internal memory (8 MB)!

So when transfering a map I got the message "insufficient memory".

I noticed there are various method to fix.

By transfering between Tablet to PC and creating new files

OR

by selecting option 3 clicking on "/storage/extSDcard/Android/ ... " in the "Defining the root directory (définir le répertoire racine).

What do you suggest?

I noticed there is a Locus file in the internal memory with datas in backup/auto, cache/image, cache images_int, cache/map/init, cache/map/offlineCreator, cache/map/nav_tracks, cache/map/various, data/config, data/dashboard, data/database, data/presets, data/strm, data/tts, mapsOnLine, mapsVector/asia, mapsVector/asia_en, mapsVector/europe.

There is also a Locus file with quite the same files & datas on the external SD card but there are no cache/map/various & data/presets.

On the SD card, I've a file named france as well as mapsVector/europe/france with datas.

Thanks again for helping me.

You can move some locus data to external sd card in order to get more free memory on internal memory.
