Post dashboard files
on: November 20, 2021 (GMT)

I downloaded a dash configuration from another user. It is currently in my download folder on my S10+. When I try to apply it in Torque Pro it doesn’t show on the list so I know Torque Pro is not finding it in the folder it is directed to. What folder do I need to move the .dash file into? I created one of my own thinking I would be able to see the file path but that was not the case.

If anyone could direct me to the folder I need to move the .dash file to I would appreciate it.

I have a similar issue. When I first started using Torque Pro a few weeks ago it worked as expected. The .dash files that define the dashboard display are located in the .torque/dashboard directory in the internal storage of my Samsung tablet . When I tried to make some changes a few days ago it is no longer functioning as expected The files are being stored somewhere else now. I posted about this a few days ago but apparently there is nobody on this forum who is knowledgeable enough to know what is going on

Hi!

The dashboard file locations have changed due to a forced move to Scoped Storage by Google (it’s now a requirement to use it for any app on Google Play).

This means that you’re looking in the old location which is no longer used (i preferred not to delete the older files, rather just copy them to the new location – the app no longer has access to the older location due to scoped storage requirements)

You’ll need to navigate to the app data folder, which will look something like this in an appropriate file browser:

I might investigate improving the import/export in the next couple of days for dashboard layouts

I am in the same boat trying to export/import dashboards and can not find the files… where would one find the scoped storage files?

I really hate that Google did this, cause on Android 12 (at least on my Pixel 6 Pro) I can not see any folders under Internal Storage -> Android -> Data using the built-in Files app…

On my moto g6 (running Linage OS, Android 11), that is my daily Torque “driver” I still can at least.
