-===== About ===== 
-Exporting points is the only way how to transfer them from Locus Map to another mobile or desktop application for further processing. Locus Map stores points in its own SQLite database format and it is necessary to export them into one of common formats, see bellow. There are several ways how to **launch point export**: 
-  * **single point export** 
-    * //Data manager// > points tab > any folder > any point > {{:​manual:​user_guide:​ic_arrow_simple_up_alt.png?​nolink&​30|}}"​more options"​ button in the lower right corner > {{:​manual:​user_guide:​ic_export_alt.png?​nolink&​30|}} export 
-    * //Map screen// > any point on the map > tap point > tap its label > {{:​manual:​user_guide:​ic_arrow_simple_up_alt.png?​nolink&​30|}} "more options"​ button in the lower right corner > {{:​manual:​user_guide:​ic_export_alt.png?​nolink&​30|}} export 
-  * **group of points export** - //Data manager// > Points tab > any folder > {{:​manual:​user_guide:​ic_tools_alt.png?​nolink&​30|}} tools button > check points to export > {{:​manual:​user_guide:​ic_export_alt.png?​nolink&​30|}} export ​ 
-  * **points folder export** - //Data manager// > Points tab > any folder > {{:​manual:​user_guide:​ic_more_ver_black.png?​nolink&​30|}} action menu > {{:​manual:​user_guide:​ic_export_alt.png?​nolink&​30|}} export

 When exporting multiple geocaches to a GPX file all of them are **checked if they contain complete information** (listing etc.). If they contain just basic info about coords, terrain, difficulty, they are **automatically updated** - export of geocaches takes a bit more time than in case of ordinary points. When exporting multiple geocaches to a GPX file all of them are **checked if they contain complete information** (listing etc.).
