Route changes when imported to the phone app

Hi,
Quite often when I import the Route from the web on my android phone, even if I select the “unchanged” option it does change, even if the route settings in the app and the web are the same.
For example, on this one https://kurv.gr/5gqbF On the web I planned to go through B182 avoiding entering Innsbruck, however when I import this to the phone app, the app routes trough L38 and Innsbruck.

I have purchased the app and I also have the yearly subscription, but because of those issues I found my self using Google Maps more and more often.

Your route contains exclusive Kurviger Tourer features.
These features are supported in new Kurviger 2 app.

But if you use *.kurviger files to transfer your routes,
then Kurviger 1 Pro can show them without changes.

You can find more details about route transfer within Kurviger in the documentation.

Looking at your example route, you have used features of the “Kurviger Tourer” subscription.
E.g. changed the strenght of avoidance.
This new features are only available in the new Kurviger App subscription.

Now you have 2 options:

  1. If you stay with the (old Version 1.x) Kurviger Pro App use *.kurviger files to transfer the route.
  2. Buy the new Kurviger App subscription (Version 2.x).
    It can be installed additionaly to the old Kurviger pro app 1.x

Thanks for the quick replies.
Do I need two subscriptions? One for the App and one for the Website, or the one for the website covers also the new App?

Copying from FAQ:


Does Kurviger Tourer include the Android App?

The Kurviger Tourer subscription provides additional features for the Kurviger website. You will have to pay for the Kurviger App separately.

We believe that this is a very fair way of pricing, because you only pay what you actually use.


Each platform has its own store.
They can not be combined for technical and privacy reasons.

I agree. It would be very fair if I have not bought the standalone app not so long ago. Just as an idea, you could have some kind of transition (One year or a couple of months free) for people who bought the standalone 1.x app.
It is all clear now, thanks for the quick responses and keep the good work.

Kurviger 1 Pro will be maintained for new Androids.

Google Play does not provide such facilities (purchases are private).
Elsewhere they may maintain their own stores (we can not do that).

Also the price is very low compared to other apps:

Thanks for your help. I tried to export the route as *.kurviger file, and it seems to work well. I just need to read a bit more to see why android is adding .txt extension to the files or just rename them every time.
The rest is I think already is well covered in the “Switch to pay-as-you-go licensing” topic.
The cost of less than one tank of fuel per year is indeed a fair price to support the future development of the app and your quick and helpful support.

Hopefully in the future, the subscription app will be able to tap directly into the cloud storage.

The import / export is handled via the Android’s file browser.
(where applications have minimal allowed control)

Please read more details about the export in the manual.

Hint: When changing the file name in the input field do not delete or overwrite the file extension
(.gpx, .kurviger). The file extension must be preserved.

Using an other browser might help, see also

Thanks to you and devemux86.
