Uff, I've just spend almost two days on work with new SD card system on Android 5.x ... and seems that support for SRTM/HGT files on SD card is done. Have to say, that system from Google may be usable for small apps and may work quite well when you (as developer) start work on a new application ... but in case of Locus it is really a nightmare. Nevermind, I'll try to do same for Locus/mapsVector during next days (maybe weeks), hope it will work.

Please don't forget support for .gh files on ext SD card as well.
We should be able to put all bulk data on ext sd card to save precious space on the internal one.

Hmm this is already possible if you set Locus/mapsVector to SD card and copy whole content from internal storage to SD card, isn't it?

Yes, that's right. And also if you leave Locus in main memory and set custom folder locations on the SD.

Yes, that's true but doesn't do what I want it to do, I still want to have my Locus folder in the default internal location but want to have all the data Locus only needs to read on the external one, please refer to
http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=4036.msg37858#msg37858
Later on in a post where you answered different things you confirmed it doesn't work as suggested.

@john_percy: I don't get what you mean, you argue it works as I request it? Now I also found a post from you in the referenced discussion which goes in the same direction, sorry I didn't see it last time.

I have Locus in main memory, that is, not moved to external SD. That allows me to use the Locus widget.
I set the Locus root directory to be on the external SD. That has drawbacks, not least that all the data is deleted if I ever uninstall Locus but I can live with that. You don't have to do that.
I created a directory on the external SD named LocusMaps and set custom directories for vector maps etc as subdirectories of that, using settings>miscellaneous>default directories
I moved relevant data to those directories including the GraphHopper routing folder. So I have a directory mapsVector/british-isles-gh
And it works.

New BETA - 3.10.3.7 version is out

I spend whole week on understanding and implementing of new "write to SD card" system from Google. Result it that on 5.0 devices, you may set your backup, mapsVector and data/srtm directories to SD card with full write access. Anyway because this change changed so huge part of Locus, I'm worried about some troubles even during common usage from internal memory or older devices. So everything weird report please, thank you and enjoy weekend!

Most things I tried did work, Menion. Except one FC I found: add a point, get elevation, select download. Crash, if you have Android 4.4 and the SRTM directory is on ext. SD card (i.e. readonly)

@gynta: not working popup ... seems to be issue on some 4.x devices, thanks, fixed

- counters: for now, final version

- poidb: sorting problem - am I miss something?

- problem to set dir: do not understand where is a problem

@michaelbechtold: thanks, I'll fix it, there should be just an error message because it won't be possible to download SRTM files to SD card on 4.4 device, only on 5.0+ when you define this in settings

Problem with showing of active tracks: active tracks aren't visible after Locus start until I open tracks manager to verify track is selected and close.

@balloni55: hmm sorry for #26, anyway not sure what here. Track restored after restart of Locus ... it is wrong?

Text in navigation ... thanks, we will improve it

@gynta: ignore factor on Dropbox is more then possible as my PC do not notify me about any new files etc. and I personally do not use Dropbox anymore. Anyway I see two main issues in Dropbox, with 3.5 vs 2.4 km radius and with sorting. Both anyway has same answer as here: http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/annoying-items-on-locus-vector-maps#comment-19515 , sorry

Thanks for video, it helped. I found one more issue, so I hope it is solved now.

@Bucky Kid: what you mean? When you close Locus and any track is visible, then when you open it again, track is not visible till you open list of tracks and return back to map?
