Android - No Option for SD card on Devices with non-Standard Filesystem

This issue affects some Android users with SD card-enabled devices. Devices that use a non-standard filesystem or SD path will not appear as available when changing the root folder in Gaia GPS.

    Will this be fixed for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 in the future? Also any chance of Samsung multi mode being supported in the future?

    Hi,

    It may be working for you already, but the SD path name is convoluted. If you go to change your root folder in Gaia GPS, Samsung users should look for a file path like /storage/xxx-xxxx (where x's are random numbers).

    No plans for multi mode just now, but you could make an official feature request here: https://help.gaiagps.com/hc/en-us/community/topics/200577988-Android-Feature-Requests

    Mine says

    /storage/emulated/0/   or just

    SD card

     

    I bought the Samsung Tab 3 for the sole purpose of using gaiagps on it, got a micro sd card to be able to download the maps - but am I correct in that there is no current means of using it?

    (Otherwise I am thrilled with gaiagps!)

    Hi Lisa,

    If you have an option that says 'SD Card', definitely select that one, and everything should work great. If that isn't working for you, please email support and I can take a closer look!

    It is now working (after deleting the app and reloading it).

    Thank you so much! What great service and a really great app!
