Locus map pro does not start

Locus map pro (and one day later the free version too) is not able to start. The initiation process ends while loading the tracks and caches from the previous sesson. Sometimes there occurs a 3-point-menu to close the app, to get info about it and to send a feedback. But the app can not be startet. I am on an important journey and don't want to miss my locus data. Please HELP! Best regards, Armin

Hello,

please install the latest version of the apps (from Friday 10th), it should work correctly then.

Have a nice journey.

Thank you, Zdenek.

--> Is it sure that I will not lose my tracks and points? I don't have any backups from actual state and these data was collected in nearly 10 years. A loss would be the GAU. Thanks for a hint. Armin

Make backup. I had automatic backup but I lost last track which was not backuppped. Last upgrade caused also, that I can not use alredy downloaded maps. I have to download them again. Option with catalogue on storage/sdcard1/Locus does not work anymore.

Hello guys,

backup is of course highly recommended in any case. I recommend some cloud service. All should be safe during update and transfer, but caution is never enough.

And about SD card, there is still an option to have stuff on SD card, but it has to be in Locus private folder.

Here is how to do that.

Regards,

Hello Zdeněk, thank you, but I do not understand: How to make a backup without running app?

Which folders have to be transfered to any cloud or stick by a simple file manager, if the app-internal backup process cannot be unsed? Please one more advice. My data are very important. Greetings, Armin

Hello Armin

take a look with a file explorer to

Locus/data/database

there should be your POI and Track .db depending of count there are a few MB´s


so copy the complete Database folder as a backup for later use
