This is not a question of how many devices you operate. With one subscription you can have a handful of them in parallel (proven).

What I understand from your description is that there is an issue with your account as such.

The Locus / Asamm team can help here (next week, I guess)

thanks, i probably belong to the old school. under android 6 and locus 3.x i could be aware of the directories of my phone and manage the maps by myself. the revolution is android 12 and locus 4.x where i lost the privilege of going into the archive and do things. that's why i am switching back to orux maps...i guess that they still give me the opportunity to manage maps by myself. or even...using both apps, because the lomaps are more precise, the other ones are rough, but they are free, it is up to me to use these or those depending on where i want to go.

Take the AFA Version from Google Drive (See Menion's footer) - and be happy with Locus 4!

I'm using this since A11, when the disaster started, as I hate this Google insanity, too.

But even the non-AFA version of LM4 now supports /Android/media/... which you can access easily.

Maybe this is in Beta, but again GD does have the apks.

Hi Juan,

please follow the instructions on the app and data transfer here: https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:move_to_new_phone.

On Android 12, there are limited options for storing the maps, see https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:locus_on_external_sdcard. The map files are imported via Locus Map, not stored by a file browser because users can no longer access the apps' private sectors. If you need Locus Map to have unlimited access to the whole phone's storage, install the "AFA" (all files access) version from https://bit.ly/lmVersions. It is not Google-approved though.

Hi Michal, I remember plans to have LoMaps on /Android/media by Locus itself, right?

Hi Michael, yes, the new version with this option is to be released in a few hours
