On your old phone:
Open aCar app.
Select “More Options…”
Select “Import/Export”
Select “Full Backup”
Choose local or cloud backup. Doesn’t really matter.
A *.abp file will be generated. Get that file onto your new phone. Use whatever method you want to do this.

On your new phone:
Open aCar app.
Select “More Options…”
Select “Import/Export”
Select “Full Restore”
Select the *.abp file.

^Thanks!

From the FAQ within aCar-
Quote:
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.

Re: migration from old to new Android phone. I have transferred my *abp from the old to Dropbox on the new. How do I move it from there to a place where acar can find it?

Easiest way is plugging your device into a computer via USB and managing the file move that way.
Otherwise, the process is the same (just more difficult on a smaller screen and via touch, in my opinion).

Download from Dropbox.
Move file from "Downloads" folder to "/zonewalker-acar" folder.
Open aCar and follow the steps mentioned above.

I do not have access to the "/zonewalker-acar" folder of my new phone (Droid Turbo Android version 5.1) when I plug it in to my Win 10 machine using file explorer.

Do not have access? As in, it's there but you cant open it? Does your phone have some sort of security encryption enabled?

If you don't see it, is aCar currently installed on the device?

Thank you for the quick reply.

I don't know what I did or did not do, but the folders now show up in file explorer and I am able to move the backup files where they need to go.

Thanks.
