POIs sharing between several smartphones
« on: March 03, 2018, 21:32:15 »
Is there an easier way (cloud...?) for sharing my Locus POIs database between the two smartphones I use than exporting/importing them from one to the other?

OK, just did it, with the help of Dropbox and DropSync, and having defined sync pairs between their Locus/data/database folders and a corresponding Locus_data_database folder in my dropbox... ;)

If changes happen on both Smartphones, one set of changes will be lost. You need to have a clear "master/slave" governance to make this kind of sync work.

Yes, I did so, with an "upload mirror" setting of Dropsync on my main unit, for its Locus/data/database directory, and a "download mirror" setting on the other  :)
