Hey all,

Is there a way to fully backup Navigon with the maps so i don`t have to download them after a ROM flash.

Using Navigon 4.0

I tried the following backups with a system, apk and data restore
  • Nandroid
  • My backup root pro
  • Titanium backup

Non off the above worked

you have to save the [/mnt]/sdcard/Navigon folder to a safe location. then just put it back to your internal sd card after a fw flash. (also external is possible, but you have to edit /data/data/com.navigon.navigator_checkout_eu40/files/NaviKernelConf.ini [i have eu version]


DataPath = /mnt/sdcard/Navigon/data/
ExtensionPath = /mnt/sdcard/Navigon/poi/
MapPath = /mnt/sdcard/Navigon/map/
SoundPath = /mnt/sdcard/Navigon/sound/


DataPath = /mnt/sdcard/external_sd/Navigon/data/
ExtensionPath = /mnt/sdcard/external_sd/Navigon/poi/
MapPath = /mnt/sdcard/external_sd/Navigon/map/
SoundPath = /mnt/sdcard/external_sd/Navigon/sound/

so you can have your maps also on the external sd)

hope it helps

If you want to backup your favorites

First, your phone has to be rooted, so you can access system files (I used ES file exporer)

copy in :


Hope this helps to somebody, I searched for couple of days

Remember to set file permissions and owner like in the new installation.

I am using Samsung Galaxy S3
Navigon Europe 4.6
android 4.2.1
