This pages describes the procedure to take over all your c:geo data from one device to another. It can be useful, if you e.g. have a new device and want to transfer all stored caches and settings from your old to the new device.
If you follow the steps below, all stored caches (including their status, notes, offline logs), the cache history and all program settings of c:geo will be 100% identical between the old and new device. These are usually the main items you want to transfer smoothly to the new device.
The described migration process does however not include offline map/theme files and exported GPX and field note files. You can easily transfer those by copying them from the related folders below the base folder of the old device to the new device.
Stored log images from cache logbooks and pictures from cache descriptions will not be included in this migration as they are stored on a non-user accessible system folder. Those can however be easily restored by refreshing the relevant caches on the new device.
You will need the following things to perform the procedure:
