I am wanting to transfer Locus Maps pro to my new Android mobile from my old Android mobile. How do I do that as well as moving apps across to my new mobile. thank you Alex


Good day Alex,

please follow these instructions. In case of any problems or question, feel free to create separate topic, we will gladly help.


Thanks. Backing up and importing the data isn't a problem. Just wondering do I have to pay for the pro version again on my new mobile. The adverts on the free version are killing me!


Then you need another topic below :). No worry, no need to pay again.
