Managing Folders on Android

Folders allow you to organize your data in the ways that make sense to you. 

Saved Folders Screen

A lot of functionality is packed into the Folders screen, here's a short run-down:

  1. Tap the plus sign in the upper-right corner to add a new folder

  2. There are six types of content you can store in a folder, these are what the icons mean from top-left to bottom right: Tracks, Waypoints, Maps, Routes, Photos, Subfolders 

  3. The buttons on the far right control the visibility of each folder. Tap where it says “On” to toggle the folder's visibility on the main map. If you see two numbers separated by a “/”, the number to the right is total pieces of data in the folder, and the number to the left is the number of those pieces of data set to visible. 

You can arrange your Folders by Name or Date on this screen.
