All of your equipment settings, FOV indicators, etc, should all be imported, once you have done the one-time import, and will be synced across multiple devices.
Most data do work. I installed SS6 on my Huawei Mate 9 and afterwards I started it clean, exited it, removed the folder Skysafari 6 Pro and renamed Skysafari 5 Pro to Skysafari 6 Pro, and everything worked, except my equipment list which I had to fill in again.

There is a weird bug in it: the Moon is displayed in daylight as a black ball with a white crescent in it.
