full backup and restore - device change not 100% working

Not a Problem


I'm just on the way to replace my device. I thought I do a backup and restore and later I copy the maps folder back to the device. Unfortunately it was not so easy.

I miss in the backup file these two folders:



It would be great if you could add them (optionally) in the backup.

I know it's a kind of third party but if it's not too much work, the settings of the FieldNotes addon would be nice to have in the backup too.

Thanks Wolfgang

Hi Wolfgang,

yes, we are considering something like this. For the time being, when moving Locus to a new device, copy ALL Locus directory to it. More info: https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:move_to_new_phone


Hi Michal,

great to hear that you're planing to improve it. For the moment I'm fine for the next few years ;) But when I think to all the people I brought to locus map and they are not IT people it would be great to have an easy solution for them ;)

Thanks Wolfgang
