For users of Android 11+:
Due to the change in the requirements of Google Play for the minimum version of the API, our application no longer has access to the internal storage of the device. Therefore, in order to open files using our application, users of Android 11+ need to transfer data to the application folder - Android/data/com.dataeast.carrymap/files/CarryMap. After the data is copied to the specified folder, you can restore the lost layers in your projects by adding them again.
Some default settings of Android devices restrict applications' access to certain system functions when running in the background. These restrictions lead to incorrect operation of the main functions of CarryMap application, such as determining the current location and track recording, creating a polygon by track, and using the feature or place on the map as destination. To solve this issue, you need to change the system settings of your smartphone or tablet, which are responsible for optimizing battery consumption and regulating access to location data. Without these changes, CarryMap application will not be able to receive your location data in the background and the above functions will not work correctly.

With the new CarryMap 5.6 release the old CMF format is not more supported, which means the old maps in CMF format are not automatically converted to the new CMF2 format when opening files. Now you will need to convert your CMF maps to the new CMF2 format using CarryMap Builder, the Desktop extension to ArcGIS. To do so, launch (install) the extension and run the ‘Convert CMF to CMF2 files’ tool.
