Works OK on Nokia 8, but 8.3 might be different.

Unfortunately, I upgraded my Nokia 8.3 to Android 12 (think it was 10 before). Before upgrading I had all files access to orglk8000.beta files directories for Maps, etc. Now with Android 12, I do not.

Looking at settings for Android 12 under Permission Manager. The lk8000.beta app does not give "All Files Access". It explicitly allows "Access to Media Only". That must be why I can't easily copy in files.

Could this be a manifest regarding Permissions set up in the app? Or is this just an artifact of Android 12?

I have Android 14 on my Pixel 7, and also could not get it to work with EX file explorer, like I used to in the past, but with the Files app Bruno provided, I can copy files from the download directory on the phone to the LK8000 directories. Handy for if you have not a laptop with you, like during Competition briefings, when last minute waypoint files are provided or some special airspace file (shit happens, and always causes panic among the pilots)!

Open the "files" App
Tap the "Download" directory
Tap and hold the file you want to copy (green check mark in front of the file)
Tap the three vertical dots in the upper right hand corner and tap "copy to.."
Tap the three horizontal stripes in the upper left hand corner
Tap "LK8000" in the list
Tap the directory you want the file to be copied to.
Tap the "copy" button on the bottom of the screen.

Done!

Check if the file is copied by tapping the three horizontal stripes again, and navigate to the LK8000 directory.

Note I have not done anything with app permissions or anything like that. But I know Android might cancel some permissions if an app is not used for a long time, but these should be reinstated if you open the LK8000 app again. So maybe just open LK8000 first (and close it again after a minute or so) before starting to copy files, so it is visible in the 'files'app.

I hope this helps!

Marco,

I'm still holding my Nokia 8.3 with Android 12 as a backup to my Nokia 8, but am totally unable to access needed directories to run LK8000. However, it appears to be good for running SeeYou Navigator which has improved a lot over the last year. Noted that NanoConfig from LXNAV also has an impossible time accessing needed directories when connecting via BT to my LXNAV S100.

Looking at a replacement ... Do you recommend the Samsung A34, A34G or Pixel 7... anything else?

I'm afraid the Nokia 8.3 would fail me if I had to begin using it in flight.

After several hours of playing with my new Samsung A34: 1) Cannont copy files from internal Download directory to the needed Android/data/org.LK8000.beta (doesn't seem to matter if I use the link to the 'Files' app that Bruno mentioned 2) I am able to connect a USB cable between the Samsung and my Windows 10 desktop PC and copy into any directory I want. 3) Using an OTG short USB-C cable to a flash drive. I am not able to copy files in. The Samsung is on Android 14.

So my LK8000 7.4.5 is fully functional (it seems) and am hoping to fly with it Thu June 6 using SeeYou Navigator. That should work just fine.
Screen brightness seems comparable to Oudie 2 and my old Nokia 8.

Noticed that my troublesome (for running LK8000) Nokia 8.3 doesn't want to connect to my PC top copy files in. So, that smartphone is going in the drawer. It works fine with SYN.

Samsung A34 5G in SeeYou Navigator refused to connect via bluetooth to my LXNAV S100... neither using the native BT in the S100 or the LXNAV BLE Dongle. Good news... it connects directly to the S100 BT in LK8000.

My plan was to fly with SYN. But, their BLE protocol using their dongle is confused by the Samsung BT stack. So, back to my trusty LK8000. Naviter is creating more problems with their custom BLE dongles than it's worth.

BTW, my old Nokia 8 on Android 9 and my Iphone Pro 13 connected to SYN just fine with the LXNAV BLE dongle.

Ah...!!! May send the phone back if I can't get it sorted in one week.
