A connection is a location or service or device that contains databases and/or GPS files suitable for QVX. E.g. a directory, a cloud or a mobile device. Connections are displayed in the Xplorer as root nodes.
The default connection, the first node, is called QV-Data and points to the DBs folder in the QVX_Data folder on disk. All standard databases are located here.
To manage, re-create or remove connections, click the Xplorer button:
Creates a new root node to a directory. QVX then displays all databases *.qvmdb in the folder and all subfolders in Xplorer.
Creates a new root node for a cloud service. You can currently choose between DropBox and OneDrive. Enter a name and click Login. The following dialog comes from the cloud provider. You need to enter your credentials and allow QVX access to your cloud. Then the success is confirmed by an Ok next to the login button.
Close the dialog and the new connection will be displayed in Xplorer. With the checkbox next to the name, the connection can now be established and terminated at any time. When connected, you will see the content in the Xplorer list.
The first time you connect to the cloud, QVX creates a “QVM_Data” folder in your cloud store. QVX and QVM only work with this folder.
The following functions are available:
If you use QV-Mobile 3 on your smartphone, you can also exchange DBs between QVX and QVM in this way, because QVM has the same cloud functionality.
QVX stores the access data in qvxuser.ini. The next time you start the program, you can reconnect immediately without logging on again. If you do not want the access data to be saved, you can deactivate this under General Settings.
This establishes a connection to the QV-Mobile app on your iPhone/iPad. The device must be in the same Wifi as the PC.
First start QVM on your iPhone or iPad. Go to the Database page and select Im/Export from the Options menu … (top right). Then select the FTP Server tab (bottom right). Activate the FTP server.
In QVX in the New Connection dialog, select a name and enter the same IP and port values as shown in the QVM. Then click on Check, the connection is established and confirmed with an Ok next to the Check button.
Close the dialog and the new connection will be displayed in Xplorer. As long as the FTP server is activated in QVM, you can establish the connection with the checkbox next to the name and see all databases of the device in the Xplorer list.
The following functions are then available:
