How To

Restore your data from secure backup

In order to be able to restore your data (database and GPS track files), the secure backup file (the attachment of the secure backup mail) must be transferred to your device. The easiest way to do this is by opening the secure backup email on your device and downloading the attached file. Another method is to copy the file by connecting your device to a computer using a USB cable.
Regardless of the method, be sure the extension of the secure backup file is .zi_ or .zip!
  1. Download the attached file from the email message:

  2. Wait until the download finish:

  3. Launch AndiCar and go to Settings -> Backup & Restore -> Restore your data..


  4. In the next window, select the "Choose other" option:

  5. Open the Download folder:

  6. Open the secure backup file:

  7. Confirm to launch the restore process
In order to prevent accidental data loss, before the restore process started a backup will be created for the existing database and GPS track files. The database backup will be available in the restore window and will have sbk_ suffix. Any existing GPS track files will be moved to a new folder named /<sdcard>/andicar/gpstrack_<timestamp>
