Error when trying to export tracks

Postby DavidH » Wed Jun 03, 2015 4:38 pm

I am running Pathaway Pro (Ver. 6.01.09.00) on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7 (Android 4.4.2)

When I try to export a track as a .kml file I get an error message and the track is not exported. I choose Data > Tracks > Export to a Local File with format KML to '/storage/extSDCard/Pathaway' and then get an 'Error exporting' when I press 'OK'. Is there something I have failed to set correctly?

With KitKat (Android 4.4 or higher), Google has decided that it is a security breach for Apps to write to the External SD-Card. The only folder that PathAway is allowed to write to on the external card is its private location:
These are:
Express:
/Android/Data/com.muskokatech.PathAwayExp/files/

Pro
/Android/Data/com.muskokatech.PathAwayPro/files/

Hopefully this will get changed in the future, but for now its the best we can do.
Sorry.

You can still write to the device storage.

Thanks Scott. By the way - PathAway is a fabulous product and my most used app.
