How to compress PathawayDBV

Postby jp » Sun Jun 27, 2010 9:35 pm


On my internal phone memory the file PathAwayDBV just keep growing and this even if I remove maps and tracks.

It is now up to 32MB and it filling up my entire phone memory. Besides I have a file with the same name on my SD card. Why do I have 2 of this files? What are the data stored in it? How can I make sure that it does not grow out of hand?

Even if installed on memory card there is a db in folder [PhoneMemory]Data/PathAway/PathAwayDBV. This DB seems to store all imported PointDBs, Tracks and Routes. Obviously there is no cleanup or compress mechanism. So even if you delete Tracks,Routes, Points it will grow and grow.
A possible solution is to delete this file or better save it in a folder on your PC. On next start PathAway will recreate an empty db. Now you need to add your Tracks, Routes, Points again. Simply copy them to the import folder.
