14ers.com app data transfer

Post by SunNFun »

Does anyone know how to transfer your data from the app on one phone to another? I got a new phone and did a data transfer from one device to the other but my recordings and routes info didnt transfer. I appreciate it.

Sounds like you're using Android. Did you use Google Backup to save all of your old apps and restore them on the new device?

If not or if the 14ers.com app didn't get restored:
For routes, your new phone will already have everything in the app, you'll just need to bookmark/download images for the routes you want to view when you're away from the internet.
For map recordings, you can export them to GPX on the old phone and transfer the data file off of the device from your computer. But there is no way to import them back into the 14ers.com app at this time.

I'm counting all the killers
They sway as they swarm
A look of gluttons in their eyes
They mutter as the body loses warmth
They pick your bones like locks inside a tomb
And take great care to not take care of you”

I do have a android. I used the "Copy my data" which is for contacts, calendar and photo's from what I read about it now. I will try the Google backup and see what happens since the other phone still works. Thanks
