in the past week or so I recorded a number of tracks with "Locus Map Pro" on Android 7.1 without any problems.

Recording time was between two and five hours.

Today I recorded a nine hour track; when I tried to upload it, all I got was the above error message (in white on orange). There was no "upload failure" email message which might have told me more.

What can I do to get the info contained in that track (106 points) into OSM?

Surely the track can't simply be too long?

Regards, Jochen

In case something was wrong with the network connection or when the server was down, it's pretty hard to send an email. I admit that Locus Map Pro could have been more informative, but on the other side they do not necessarily know more.

Maybe you should just try again now ? It could have been a hickup that is fixed in the meantime.

I ried again around midnight, and just now.

Same result.

To see if it was something about this particular track I tried uploading a short track that I had not uploaded before simply because it contained only one info relevant to OSM - same result.

I tapped "Remove Login" in Locus' Export dialogue, logged in again to OSM, making sure that Locus had all permissions necessary for upload granted - same result.

This is rather difficult to debug without access to the systems in question, I would suggest contacting the sysadmins.

Thanks - this worked (at least I am now "waiting" rather than "Unauthorized"); the rest, I hope, the Locus forum will deal with.

The link scai provides here is simply the UI for a manual upload.
