I am running Pathaway Pro (Ver. on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7 (Android 4.4.2)

When I try to export a track as a .kml file I get an error message and the track is not exported. I choose Data > Tracks > Export to a Local File with format KML to '/storage/extSDCard/Pathaway' and then get an 'Error exporting' when I press 'OK'. Is there something I have failed to set correctly?

Hopefully this will get changed in the future, but for now its the best we can do.

You can still write to the device storage.
