Don't expect Lollipop to correct this, or at least not soon. They are just adding a hook that developers can use. It may take apps a long time to implement it, if ever.

Thanks.
Being a tight wad I had put off getting the pro version. Now I have no excuse. :lol3

I also hadn't used it enough to be comfortable with it. So now I need to play with it for a while.

Correct, it does NOT rename the tracks. But they are all the same color on the map. I never thought about the color of multiple GPX tracks.

Furkot is missing to many features that I need, and is bloated with things I could care less about.
