I had RAZR XT910 IT.
I need to move CoPilot's maps to external micro SD (I had 32 GB), but I don't know how.

Can I move only maps or CoPilot app too?

Thank you for answer.
Bye.

I removed the entire application: maps took over 6 GB.
How can I install the maps on SD card? Is it possible?

Hiya I recently faced this problem. Luckily I have a solution for you!

Solution

Modify the file "user.cfg" in "Internal storage/copilot" (in my case I've just copy the file to my sd card and modify in my desktop)
and change the value from sdcard(internal storage) to sdcard-ext (external sd card path may be different check in my files to see what path external sd is it may be external_sd or sdcard-ext)

Change wherever you see the letters "EU"

The result should look like this:

[Directories]
"AddonDir"="/mnt/sdcard-ext/copilot/EU/eu/addon/"
"AudioDir"="/mnt/sdcard/copilot/audio/"
"CitiesDir"="/mnt/sdcard-ext/copilot/EU/eu/cities/"
"GlobalAddonDir"="/mnt/sdcard/copilot/addon"
"GPSDemoDir"="/mnt/sdcard/copilot/gpstracks/demo"
"LRGeoDir"="/mnt/sdcard-ext/copilot/EU/eu/places/"
"LRGlobalSaveDir"="/mnt/sdcard/copilot/save"
"LRGPSSaveDir"="/mnt/sdcard/copilot/gpstracks"
"LRGridDir"="/mnt/sdcard-ext/copilot/EU/eu/data/"
"LRInfoDir"="/mnt/sdcard/copilot/info"
"LRSaveDir"="/mnt/sdcard-ext/copilot/EU/eu/save/"
"PolyDir"="/mnt/sdcard-ext/copilot/EU/eu/polygons/"
"RazorCacheDir"="/mnt/sdcard/copilot/save/razor_cache"
"RegionDir"="EU"
"RootDir"="/mnt/sdcard/copilot/"
"SkinDir"="/mnt/sdcard/copilot/skin/"
"SpeechDir"="/mnt/sdcard/copilot/speech"
"UIConfigDir"="/mnt/sdcard/copilot/uiconfig/"

Yes the app will stay on the internal memory. What we are doing is changing the configuration file paths to look for the maps on the external sd card. I have just managed to get this to work. You simply copy the maps to the external sd and change the paths in the cfg file to point to the maps on the external sd wherever you you see EU in the path on the cfg file. works 100%

I've tried this on Copilot Live EU 9.3.0.173 and my phone which has "Phone storage" and "SD card"

My original user.cfg file looks like:

[Directories]
"AddonDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/EU/addon/"
"AudioDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/audio/"
"GlobalAddonDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/addon"
"GPSDemoDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/gpstracks/demo"
"LRGlobalSaveDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/save"
"LRGPSSaveDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/gpstracks"
"LRInfoDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/info"
"LRSaveDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/EU/save/"
"RegionDir"="EU"
"RootDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/"
"SkinDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/skin/"
"SpeechDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/speech"
"ThemesDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/themes/"
"UIConfigDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/uiconfig/"
"UpdateDir"="/mnt/sdcard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/save/update"


And whatewer I change, Copilot always want to download new maps to the phone storage I don't know what to do


EDIT:

I foun the solution I was a little to stupid before...
My external sdcard name is sdcard2 so I did this:



[Directories]
"AddonDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/EU/1/"
"AudioDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/audio/"
"GlobalAddonDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/addon"
"GPSDemoDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/gpstracks/demo"
"LRGlobalSaveDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/save"
"LRGPSSaveDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/gpstracks"
"LRInfoDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/info"
"LRSaveDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/EU/save/"
"RegionDir"="EU"
"RootDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/"
"SkinDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/skin/"
"SpeechDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/speech"
"ThemesDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/themes/"
"UIConfigDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/uiconfig/"
"UpdateDir"="/mnt/sdcard2/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/save/update"

I shange every sdcard to sdcard2...I don't know is that correct but it works fine on my phone...When I change this in user.cfg file on phone storage, I have deleted some directories from phone storage (audio, gpstracks, info, save, speech, themes, uiconfig) becouse I thought I don't need them if after my changes in .cfg file....
When I start copilot again he creates this directories again on my phone storage, and now I have these Directories on my phone storage: audio, gpstracks, info, log, maps, pic, save, skin, speech, tablet, themes, uiconfig. But now Copilot uses only 36,2 MB of my phone storage...and I have map of whole Europe

Here's the easy way to do this
Move the larger folders from any app to your external SD using Directory Bind:

This may be a dumb question but please bear with me.
I edit the file changing sdcard to external_sd and save the file then reopen the file and it seems to be saved but when I launch the app it changes the entry back to sdcard. How do I get the edit to stick?

this is how i got mine to work off the ext sd card.
my phone is a galaxy s2 i have 16gb internal and a 16gb sd card

you should have installed the APK and opened it 1 time.
you might have to download maps

after you are done and you have started the app and it worked
exit the app and connect USB to PC and read your internal you should see the folder
com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan
you will have to copy this whole folder to your ext sd card
now open your user.cfg file
i changed my user.cfg to the following

[Directories]
"AddonDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/NA/addon/"
"AudioDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/audio/"
"GlobalAddonDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/addon"
"GPSDemoDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/gpstracks/demo"
"LRGlobalSaveDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/save"
"LRGPSSaveDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/gpstracks"
"LRInfoDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/info"
"LRSaveDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/NA/save/"
"RegionDir"="NA"
"RootDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/"
"SkinDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/skin/"
"SpeechDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/speech"
"ThemesDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/themes/"
"UIConfigDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/uiconfig/"
"UpdateDir"="/storage/extSdCard/com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan/save/update"


now save your file user.cfg and put it in the com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan folder
you can then delete the map out of the com.alk.copilot.eumarket.premiumeupan folder on the internal sd card
after you have done that you can open the app and wait for it wait for it bam it worked
