Main settings

The main application settings allow users to easily change some basic behaviors and configurations.

To open these settings:

  • Click on the main menu button ;
  • Click on the “Settings” menu item.


The application folder

The application folder is the unique folder used by the application to store all its data on the user device, including:

  • Stored maps for off-line use;
  • User landmarks, when using the default landmarks folder;
  • Imported and exported landmarks, details or map images;
  • Pictures used in waypoints;
  • Various technical data.

This folder is automatically chosen during the first application start, and is usually location on the external SD card (if available) for devices with Android lower then 4.4, or on the device memory (SD card storage behavior has considerably changed on Android 4.4).

How to locate the application folder?

Don't hesitate to change the application folder location if you're not happy with one chosen by default. See How to change the location of stored data?.

User settings

User settings allow users to modify particular advanced behaviors. These settings are file based, should be edited by advanced users only, and require the restart of the application to be taken into account.
