    I'm not finding the bcnav folder anywhere. I have searched everything in my files.

    "My Files" the app will not see it. See the guide above about Browsing BCN App Folder

    the migration did not copy any files at all, even not when selecting "replace files"

    needed to copy all files from disk (SD card) to internal storage. Then migration worked without moving / copying any file. Had to select my maps and mapstyle manually in place. Now it works.

    I just logged into Backcountry app for the first time in 4-5 months. Just went through the migration process as directed here and everything went smoothly.

    Problem is all of my waypoints and tracks are gone instead there is a "mine ruins" waypoint I am not familiar with.

    How do I retrieve my waypoints?

    Any suggestions to get the backup feature to authenticate with Google Drive and/or Dropbox on my Pixel 6 Pro. Once I sign in to either, it times out and won't complete the action. "This site can't be reached

    www.cloudrailauth.com's server IP address could not be found.

    Try:
    Checking the connection
    ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED"

    (p.s. Migration has been completed)

    Hi @MyPrivateGeek

    We are still working on a new solution to this one (we can only suggest manual backups as of the moment) because Google decided to discontinue the API we originally used for the cloud backup. 

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Why is this so useless?

    This “guide” doesn't even tell you how to get to the screen it starts with.

    God forbid anybody ever get a new phone, because transferring all your data will be convoluted and unexplainable.

    Why do I have to go through this every time I get a new phone?

    Hi Solomon,

     

    Apologies as this was very old (updating the migration reset part on the article). 

    We have to go through this because Google/Android updates how apps can access Data on every new iteration of the OS, It's something we need to do for the app to be able to access your device's storage. 

     

    To reset migration if it didn't prompt on first instance, go to Menu > Settings > Storage Options - Reset Migration

    Thank you.

    The migration tool in BC NAV Pro doesn't see a ‘bcnav’ folder in my Internal Storage. I'm on Android 14. Where are the BCN files stored?

    I figured out a work around for my S24ultra. I took my note 9( my backup off road gps) BCN file and made sure I had everything I wanted. Copied it to my pc then copied it to my s24 as a main file in the s24 storage. Reset Migration to that file and now I have access to all my maps. Moving forward I can now copy and paste into that folder on the pc. Hopefully new maps will be okay added like this. Not sure about way points and tracks. Hopefully everything forward is easy but worst case ill repeat for new maps as needed.

    Hi Buck, 

    Glad you did. 

    But I think as long as the file folder/storage is migrated to the new folder, it should ideally work.

     

    thanks,
