Import Icons with .GPX file
« on: September 16, 2012, 17:27:12 »
I created a .gpx file in my device and changed the icons to four different types for 18 points. I then moved the gpx file to my spouses devices. I thought I would just be able to copy it over, but I found I had to export and import the file to move it to another device, did I do that right?

Also my icons on the 2nd device were reset to the generic 'i' icon. Is there a way to copy a points file to another device and save the icons as well (for example using a different format)?

Hi,
 generally if you want to move more then plain text, you should use well supported KML files. If you used icons that are already present in Locus, KML should be enough. If you use your own icons and want also to transfer it to another device, select also "Pack to KMZ" in kml screen export (some description is here http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php/manual ... dialog#kml

try it and let me know in case of problems
