Transferring overlay data to an Android device

This article will show you how to transfer your marks, routes and tracks saved on your PC to your Android device.

Please note that if you are using Memory-Map 6 on your PC a much quicker and easier way to transfer overlay data is to use the Memory-Map Cloud Sync feature. Details of this can be found HERE.

However if you would like to manually transfer the overlay data please follow the steps below:

  1. Within Memory-Map save the route or track as normal to a location on your PC as a GPX file
  2. Close the Memory-Map application
  3. Connect your Android device to your PC (please check your devices user manual for the correct method)
  4. Use Windows File Explorer to locate the Internal Storage\Download\Memory-Map folder on your Android device (this will contain an additional sub folder named DMS)
  5. Copy and paste the GPX file from your PC into the Internal Storage\Download\Memory-Map folder
  6. Disconnect your Android device from the PC
  7. Launch the Memory-Map app on your Android device
  8. Press Menu > Overlays > Menu > Load Saved Data
  9. Select the overlay you wish to load
  10. Select the type of overlay you have just loaded (Route or Track)
  11. Select the name of overlay and press View

The overlay will then be displayed within the Memory-Map app on the best scale map that the app has access to.
