Have you seen the FAQ's within the app?

How do I move to a new phone or tablet?
If you're using the PRO edition:
  1. Launch aCar on your old phone/tablet.
  2. Go to Import/Export Center and take a full backup of your data.
  3. Connect your old phone/tablet to your computer and copy the content of following directory from your old SD-Card (or from the internal storage of your phone/tablet depending on the brand and model) to the new one:
    /zonewalker-acar/*.abp
  4. Install aCar on your new phone/tablet, and launch it.
  5. You will get the auto restore dialog right after the launch.
  6. Choose the backup file you're going to restore from and DONE!
  7. Upgrade to Pro on your new phone/tablet.
  8. If you somehow manage to miss the auto restore dialog, just go to Import/Export Center and manually restore your backup from there.
  9. If everything went fine on your new phone/tablet, it's safe to uninstall aCar from the old one.

If you're using the FREE edition:
  1. Connect your old phone/tablet to your computer and copy the content of following directory, where your automatic backup files are stored, from your old SD-Card (or from the internal storage of your phone/tablet depending on the brand and model) to the new one:
    /zonewalker-acar/*.abp
  2. Install aCar on your new phone/tablet, and launch it.
  3. You will get the auto restore dialog right after the launch.
  4. Choose the backup file you're going to restore from and DONE!
  5. If everything went fine on your new phone/tablet, it's safe to uninstall aCar from the old one.

Maybe I just haven't found it yet in the app, but is there a way to have it automatically backup to a cloud service like Google Drive, or send the .abp file in an email? I would like to set up an email folder or Google Drive folder where aCar can automatically send it. Right now, I only see it automatically backs up to the device. I'd like to automatically have it backup to a cloud service.

Automatic backups only save to the local storage. A future update will offer sync to Fuelly.com/online server.

You should add to the devlist what I previously described. It'd be a great feature. Is there a published timeline, not necessarily with dates, but like a future update timeline/list?

Hello. I'm wondering if there has been any timeline updates? I got caught in the Note 7 recall fiasco and I'm getting ready to dump my "replacement" Note 7. I've gotten quite good at transferring data! I went from my old Galaxy SIII to a Galaxy S6 last year, then to a Note 7 in August, a Note 5 temp phone in September, then my replacement Note 7 late in September. I have a lot of data in my aCar app, so I make sure to move a backup to the cloud every week and periodically transfer the zonewalker-acar file to my computer.

I've been searching for a replacement fuel app that will sync in the cloud with the ability to view/update the logs in a browser. So far I haven't found anything I like so I'm really hoping that aCar will be updated in the near future. Ideally, I hope it's similar to an app I use to record my trips and other business expenses - TripLog. It's easy to use, has a nice interface, and I can view/edit the data via the app or a browser. I never have to worry about losing my data.

Best of luck to you! I love aCar and I hope it gets updated and fully integrated with Fuelly soon!

Is the Beta still open? It requests the android version being used and the newest version offered is 4.4 - this is over three years old!

Looking at this thread, aCar was acquired ~896 days ago and the last update for aCar was over a year ago. While I appreciate you've been working hard to sort out GasCubby and GasTracker it really doesn't feel like aCar is getting much/any love.

Any updates would be useful as I've been a long time aCar Pro user who would really like the cloud backup/fuelly integration promised so long ago.

Hello RobertV,

When can we expect this? I recall from 2014 that new features and integration with fuelly was promised but still no updates after acar acquisition and no integration. I Love acar and it has been my fav. car log app since 2007 but lack of auto cloud backup is disappointing nowadays.

Cheers,

We are about to roll into beta testing aCar 5.0 very soon. We are currently in the alpha testing phase.

It's getting close, the final release will depend on what we encounter in the beta testing.

So far, from what I've seen in the alpha testing, things are looking good.

Excellent news!

Will the beta be public? If so, will this page Fuelly & aCar Unite be updated with newer Android versions?

Thanks for the update.
