Dear Support
I created some maps with touratech and tryed to import them into PW.

I do get them imported, but I can not see them in PW.

When I go to Data>Maps I dont see any maps. I suppose I shoud see them there.

I have observed that all the question concerning with importing maps have not been answered.

If there is a general bug there, please tell me. I have no problem buying a version for Android as I have also a Nexus 7. I just need a working unit as I am going for a trip.

I have the German version

Can you please advice.

Some tips for iOS and Android.
- With Touratech/QV 7 maps, you must encode them to the UID on your device. This is a copyright requirement from the map providers. You UID is displayed in the Settings->About dialogs. In QV, set your PathAway map conversion settings with this UID. [/b]

Some tips for Android only.
- In some cases, the Import may not be recognized, so ensuring you exit the program completely and restarting would resolve this.
- Note that for Maps you don't need to use the Import command. You can simply copy the maps to your <sdcard folder>/PathAway folder.

Dear Scott
thanks for the replay.
I did export with UID but the maps dont show up on the IPAD. The import works ok, no error messages everything ok, but they dont show up. I spent hours messing about.

Downloaded the Android Test version on my Nezus 7 and up to now it works ok.
