Import older tracks from another phone

I have older tracks in another phone that I would like to import to the phone I am using now. I have an older backup in the sd, but if I try restore backup it warns me of deleting my newer tracks. How can I actually import the older tracks while keeping the newer ones?

Export your tracks to GPX files and import routes from those files to routes in new device.

Thanks. Is there a way to bulk import or should I go one at a time?

I dont know. :(

I configured Locus to automatically export all my recorded tracks to GPX files and save them in Google Drive, so I have my tracks already exported.

In the export dialog on your old device you can select one or more tracks for exporting them into one gpx-file.

When you then import that gpx-file one your new device every track which is in the gpx-file will be imported.

In LM4 it works like this:

Open the folder of your tracks in Locus on your old device.

Press the "tool"-button in the right lower corner.

Mark the tracks you want to export.

Export the marked tracks to a gpx-file.

Import that gpx-file on your new device.

Have a nice day.

No, that's what I already knew. The point is that I do also have newer tracks in the new phone and if I proceed as told in the manual to restore the older tracks, I would delete the new ones. My question is about how to merge the old ones with the new ones.
