Gpx import not possible

Felix omnimann shared this problem 11 months ago

When I try to import a gpx file created by Locus Map on an other device (mobile phone) to my tablet it Shows following messages:

Can't find any importable points or tracks in the file(s)

Do you want to load and display content on map?

Mobile to mobile works fine but mobile to tabet doesn't work any more Since around 2 weeks. All equipment is Samsung with Android. Needless to say that it is also not loading and displaying the

content on map even if I answer the question with yes.

we are sorry for the inconvenience.

Do you have Locus installed in internal memory (not the Private directory)?
This problem is very likely related to this problem:

Please do the following:

  1. change app directory to private over Settings > Backup & Filesystem > File system manager > Set the main directory > Private folder in internal storage
  2. this should be quick and after that restart is needed
  3. then move old data with Settings > Backup & Filesystem > App data transfer > Load app data > continue. It is necessary to open the old "Locus" directory and choose "Use this folder"
  4. You may "Move" the whole directory or if you have enough space and want to be safe, simply "Copy" first and later delete the old Locus directory manually
  5. After restart, all data should be restored

this worked out fine everything is back to normal! Only question: I copied the whole directory and would like to delete the old one now but don't know where to find it.

Thanks for the help!



I am glad it works.

You can check your working directory in the "Menu > About the app/Helpdesk > App info"

It should be "Android/data..." and "Android/Media...". All other "Locus" directories are duplicates.

If you are not sure, send me a screenshot from there and write all the destinations of Locus you have found.
