LoRouter Offline Data on External SD Card

I'm using "LoRouter Offline" as my navigation router source. LM seems to download offline routing files to a default directory at LOCUS/ROUTER, which is internal storage.

As I understand, LM allows certain data to be stored on external SD card (as mentioned here https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:use_sdcard_on_kitkat), including vector maps and SRTM data, which can be done by redefining the path to it in Locus settings (Locus settings > Miscellaneous > Default directories >). However, the path to LoRouter's data is not found in this Locus settings.

I wish it would be possible to store LoRouter's data on external SD card.

Almost all new telephones no longer have an SD card. I think it is no longer worth the effort.


Many of the more popular flagships such as Samsung Galaxy Note and S series still support SD card in their latest models, and these phones are going to be around for a while. The "Ultra" variant of these series are known to be supporting SD card even in their upcoming models.

As a matter of fact LM4 already has this feature in “Locus settings > Miscellaneous > Default directories”, so we already can redefine working directories for items such as raster map, vector map, srtm, etc., some to external storage while other to another internal storage. I brought up this question because LoRouter data seems to be an omission here. It should have been included in “Default directories” settings whether internal or external for the sake of consistency.
