Hello everyone,

is it possible use a local path for new recorded tracks that is automatically synchronized to Google Drive ?


Ok, going more in deep.

As you may know, on PC, we have Google Drive local folders whose content is automatically synchronized to Google Drive. Such folders are normal folder that can be freely used as local paths. Is there anything similar under Androis OS ?


I would use Google Drive local folder as a replacement of the default "/sdcard/Locus/export" folder.


My target would be to let any new recorded track being saved in a local folder that will be automatically uploaded to Google Drive as soon an internet connection (wifi in my specific case) will become available.


I am quite new to Locus Map and I could be missing something. In case, please don't miss to let me know :-)


Thankyou

Hi Mauro,

recorded tracks are always saved in Locus internal database file. But it is possible to set up an automatic export of recorded tracks to Google Drive - go to Locus settings > Track recording > select profile > settings > Automatic export > select format (e.g. GPX) > set up the path to Google Drive (the GD app doesn't have to be installed on your phone).
