Connections

A connection is a location or service or device that contains databases and/or GPS files suitable for QVX. For example, a directory, cloud, or 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 the hard disk. All standard databases are located here.

To manage, create or remove connections, click the Xplorer button:

Directory

Creates a new root node to a directory. QVX then displays all databases *.qvmdb in the folder and all subfolders in the Xplorer.

Cloud service

Creates a new root node to a cloud service. Currently DropBox and OneDrive are available. Enter a name and click Login. The following dialog comes from the cloud provider. You will need to enter your login details and allow QVX to access your cloud. Afterwards the success is confirmed by an Ok next to the login button.

Close the dialog and the new connection is displayed in the Xplorer. With the checkbox next to the name the connection can now be established and disconnected at any time. When connected, you will see the content in the Xplorer list.

When connecting to the cloud for the first time, QVX creates a folder “QVM_Data” in your cloud storage. QVX and QVM only work with this folder.

The following functions are available:

  • Upload databases from the Xplorer via Drag&Drop or Copy-Paste.
  • Download databases to a folder in the Xplorer using Drag&Drop or Copy-Paste.
  • Download GPX/KML/KMZ files via Drag&Drop into the map as a quick view of the content or into a table for import.
  • Delete files from the cloud

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 the qvxuser.ini. The next time you start the program, you can connect again immediately without having to log on again. If you do not want the access data to be saved, you can switch this off under Settings-General.

QVM (ftp)

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 values for IP and port as shown in QVM. Then click Check, the connection is established and confirmed with an OK next to the Check button.

Close the dialog and the new connection is displayed in the Xplorer. As long as the FTP server is activated in QVM, you can connect using the checkbox next to the name and see all databases of the device in the Xplorer list.

The following functions are then available:

  • Upload databases from the Xplorer to the device via Drag&Drop or Copy-Paste.
  • Download databases to a folder in the Xplorer using Drag&Drop or Copy-Paste.
  • Delete databases from the device
