new phone conversion to new version question

Getting a new phone. I have Classic on my old phone and just want Locus 4 on my new one. Will the backup from old phone Classic properly restore into Locus 4 on the new phone, or do I first need to install Classic on the new phone and restore into that then convert? Thanks.

Hi Alan,

follow the instructions at https://docs.locusmap.app/doku.php?id=manual:faq:move_to_new_phone. In step 2., install Locus Map 4 instead of the LM Classic.

The data of both apps are complementary.

Thanks for responding. I can't seem to get into a Locus directory on my new Android 14 phone. Are they not accessible like in Android 10?

Hi Alan,

yes, beginning with Android 11, the Android/data/ directory is blocked for writing data. It is necessary to move the data there via PC:

- attach your phone to a PC via USB cable and allow file transfer over it in the phone

- open a file browser in your PC and find the /Locus/ directory

- copy the /Locus/ directory to /Android/data/menion.android.locus/files directory (overwrite the new /Locus/ folder in there)

- disconnect your phone from PC and restart Locus Map
