It would be most excellent if the tracker was able to do file transfer and related tasks over USB.
This feature used to exist but was disabled due to reliability issues.
What is the problem?
The user must power down the tracker, remove the (tiny and fragile) memory card, insert it in a reader, plug it into the computer in order to transfer files, delete or move things around. The user must also remember to unmount the memory card in order to reduce the risk of corrupting data.
What do you want to achieve?
The tracker has a USB port and used to support MTP. It would be great to be able to connect it to a computer and copy, rename, move, delete files.
Are there any workarounds?
Yes: Power down the tracker, take the memory card out and put it in a reader. Connect that reader to a computer. Do the file access tasks. Unmount the reader. Remove the reader from computer. Remove memory card from the reader. Put memory card in tracker. Power up tracker.
