Transferring SportsTracker Data Between Devices

by Darla Mack

As you know, Nokia Sports Tracker has recently received an update to include video. 

One of the things that bothered me about NST is the fact that although you can upload your data from mobile to desktop, there is no vice versa method.  I know I know... one might say "well who cares".  Lol its not like I've been putting down mileage of walking anyway.

With the help of Y-Browser (everyone should have this) I've successfully managed to move my data from one device to another.  You could just use the same device everyday and not have to worry about it... but I like my method better. :)

First, if you don't have Y-Browser, please download it from their site.  Also make sure to get the plugins, especially Mail Folders and BT OBEX Sender.

Using Y-Browser, go into the drive that stores your Sportstracker application.  In my case its my memory card, so that would be my E:/ drive.

Once you find the files go to options > mark next to each file that you want to send.  Once selected, go to Options > File > Send and select BT Obex.  Once you've done that you will see the BT Obex screen as shown in the 4th image above.  Those files are then sent to your selected device.

Now in your selected device, do not open your inbox.  Instead, go to Y-Browser and select Mail Folders.  Scroll down your inbox in Mail Folders and search for your .dat files.

Once found go to Options > Copy.  You will then be prompted to select a folder.  Make sure you select the drive where your Sports Tracker app is located.  Find the Sports Tracker folder and then click Select.  A box will open with the file name and once you hit ok you will receive confirmation that the file has been copied.

well i guess the world has lost another useful individual to the apple-oshpere of existence.

twas nice knowing you Darla.

ps... i use an iphone and i sorely miss my N95. I'm just waiting for the N96.


It's a lot easier to just copy the sports tracker folder from memory card to memory card...i've done this with several cards & nokia's :)

you can also just transfer your memory card from phone to phone and sports trackers data is interchangable...



This may be true, but in the case where you have a device with a built in drive such as the N95 8GB, the ease of an SD card isn't an option. Also, for some reason I am unable to connect and view files from my N95-3 to my Powerbook G4, so this is just another option for users that might have similar issues such as myself. :)

Lol, I'm not completely stopping my Nokia usage... are you nutso!!! I'm just opening myself up to other options. I mean honestly... I can't call myself a Mobile Diva only using Nokia devices. I'd have to call myself a Nokia Diva! :)


I have got all my information back to my device after a format long time ago. Dont remember if I copied the folder to my pc and then back (guess it was so). But can tell that the latest update that should include upload of videos never worked at Nokia E61i. After an upload SportsT never asked to search for Pictures or videos, sadly but true. Needed to downgrade again so at least could upload pic. Anyone else had same problem?
