Route import problem since Android 12

It seems that since Android 12 there is a problem to import routes exported from a different application, which has been downloaded or sent via email and stored on the phone's storage.
The application can import files exported from Fly Is Fun but cannot see files saved by other applications. It would be nice if there would be a folder with special permissions which allows FIF import files, or the possibility to import the route from the clipboard - so the file could be opened in the text editor and a route copied into the FIF skipping file permissions.
I checked this issue on my previous phone (Older Android) and it's working correctly there - I can import files sent via email.

With Android 11, Google introduced lot of restrictions that make import and export = nightmare

Work around that seem to work for KML files

Save the route as .kml in the Document directory
With a file manager application, as the one of Google, select and open the .kml file. To open it, select Fly Is Fun, than import to routes
Fly Is Fun Route libary open, click on the horizontal import arrow that appear on the bottom right

For me it works with .kml, not with the GPX

Let us know if this workaround works

Hello,

Google makes more and more restrictions. If yoo want to copy your files to Android device, connect your device to PC and open Windows file manager and copy files to
...\Android\data\gps.ils.vor.glasscockpit\files

Due to Android restrictions on writing to the µSD card, I have defined a FlyIsFun folder in the Internal storage and I use it to export/import routes and other items.
In such Internal folder, any app can then read/edit/write the files.
