Nav Explorer – Your solution for easy file transfer with Wear OS

[App] Nav Explorer – Wear OS Wireless File Transfer

Nav ExplorerNav Explorer : Your solution for easy file transfer with Wear OS.

Nav Explorer communicates directly over your local WiFi connection or Bluetooth to easily and quickly transfer files. The app integrates with NavMusic, NavCasts, and NavBooks so you can play any audio file transferred from your phone and even view photos or videos* on your watch.

I would like to keep adding features so please let me know of any ideas you would like to see added to the app.

*It is likely you will only be able to listen to videos as most Android Wear apps do not make the necessary codecs available.

Nav Explorer user reviews :

Fantastic app for transferring files to a watch. I have nav music, and will probably also buy nav podcast soon. The developer is very helpful and has helped me out, an update was ready for down load the same day I reported an issue. The app works fine, I can’t believe Google haven’t built this facility into the operating system as standard. Trying to force a Google music subscription I guess.

The first file transfer app for Android Wear OS that really worked for me.

notworking. I copy and paste but nothing happens to my watch…. I just figured out. The app on watch works. It launches a ftp service. I use another file explorer that supports ftp. It worka eventually.

  • Hi Ray, I’m glad you were able to get the app working. Could you update the stars on your review to reflect this? Thanks! -Joel
i have a asus zen smart watch gen 1 and it wont download the app to my smart watch to sync it via blue tooth

  • Hi Linkel, I am sorry the app is not transferring. This is a Google Play issue with syncing apps to the watch and is beyond my control. Some troubleshooting: Press the sync apps button in Wear OS app. Could you please contact Google Play support to ask for help? If all else fails, I would be happy to send you the latest apk to sideload yourself.
5* Works well and fast with Huawei Watch 2. Install on both phone and watch. Thanks.

  • [Edit] Just got feedback from a tester saying that the problem was fixed. Could you please try to update to 0.8.0 and check to see if this fixed the issue? Hey Lee, Sorry about the issue. I am aware that there is a bug for the Huawei Watch 2. I have ordered one and should get it by the end of next week to track down the issue.
