Uninstalling Pro without crippling 4?
« on: September 29, 2021, 21:28:18 »

I suppose this has already been asked, but I can't find the thread:

Locus Pro 3.5 and 4/Gold share most data (List of Themes is slightly different).

All data are in the internal Default location, except for vector maps, which have a dedicated location on the SD card.

(Galaxy S9 with CustomROM equivalent to Android 8.1).

Can I / How can I uninstall Pro without deleting any of the data for "4"?

Regards, J.

yes, in this case, there should be no problem. App during in-install does not touch its data in the default directory (the root of internal memory). Anyway, at least full backup made over internal "Backup manager" is always a good choice. This allows to save at least own points & tracks in worst case  ;)
