Cannot see my external SD card from within Locus

Agustin Lobo shared this problem 4 years ago
Not a Problem

I've installed Locus Map Pro 3.28.1 on an Android 7.0 smart phone.

According to "About app", my working directory is /sdcard/Locus, bu this is not true: if I check with the file browser, the program has been installed on the Internal storage.

Also, when I try to set my external offline maps, I cannot navigate to the real external SD card. By default, I'm on SDCARD/LOCUS, but when I go up one level to SDCARD I can see by its contents that that is not my external sdcard. If I go up one more level, the listing is empty, cannot select anything, even not "SDCARD" any more.


I've uninstalled and re-installed, but got the same.


Thanks

HI Agustin,

Android 7.0 names its internal memory as "sdcard", whereas the real external SD card is named by some code name like ABCD-XYZZ.

Yes, I can see that folder using ES File Explorer: /storage/690B-7121

and I can see it with the default File Manager app as "SD card",

but it is not listed by the browser within Locus: I have SDCARD and if I go up then nothing. And within SDCARD there is no folder named storage.

So my main question remains: how can I browse to my external card using the File browser in Locus?

Could you please post a screenshot of the directory structure you see in Locus file browser? Thanks
