    Hi Menion,

    I have a problem:
    which GSAK file(s) and where to find contains the Database of GSAK and has to be copied on the Android? I found in the BackUp of my GSAK database a file named gsak.db3, but I get an error message when I try to import these dates (the path is ok).

    I purchased the Locus Pro for Android and I’m really enjoying it.

    I’m just feeling really miss the option to sync routes and tracks to the site, as I did in ViewRanger.

    Do you intend to implement this functionality?

      Hi,
      this is more on forum discussion then on post under different blog post. Anyway I don’t know viewranger program. If you want store tracks online, I can suggest GPSies site, that is already in locus (for uploading tracks)

    Hi, would you consider adding support for bcaching.com website (or database) in Locus?

    I use bcaching.com extensively for geocaching and it provides me with an offline alternative of having the info of all geocaches when I need it. I use an Android phone, and having the GPX of the latest caches in the phone (or thru the bcaching.com website) is a really handy tool.

    Other option I would love to see in Locus is support for importing gsak gpx files. So far, I have not tried importing them but having some kind of native support in Locus would be awesome!

    Thanks for such an EXCELLENT application!

      Hi,
      I’m sure that import of GPX files from GSAK is already working. Anyway I heard something from Kuratko (author of this addon), that he’ll probably think about second addon with same functionality as this but from GSAK program ;). So …
