GTA Online Exotic Export or Import issue after next-gen update troubles many

GTA Online is the multiplayer version of Rockstar iconic action game saga. Since its launch in 2013 it has been constantly receiving new content, maintaining a solid player base.

GTA Online is available for many consoles and platforms, including two-generations old consoles (such as Xbox 360 and PS3), which has contributed to its great success.

The game challenges you to go through a huge map where you will face other players and complete missions, using the gameplay mechanics seen in modern installations of the GTA saga (such as GTA V).

The GTA Online next-gen update with new content and graphic improvements arrived this month (March). However, the update also brought some bugs.

According to multiple reports, there is an Exotic Export or Import issue after the GTA Online next-gen update (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) that prevents starting or completing those missions.

GTA Online next-gen update brought an Exotic Export or Import issue

GTA Online Exotic Export/Import is a game mode based on finding rare and expensive cars to deliver them to a certain area of the map.

Normally, when you find one of the vehicles, a marker on the map indicates where to go. However, currently the game mode is bugged as the map starts to behave erratically.


Can’t do Exotic Exports

I’ve been unable to do the exotic exports in next gen on series x. Before the migration, when getting into a vehicle for the exports, the map flashed white and the dock icon appeared. Now the map stays white, i have the message on the top left that states driving to the anchor icon at the docks and the message is constantly displayed, never goes away while in the vehicle, but the anchor icon doesn’t appear on the map.

Exotic Imports Bug (GTA Online S/X)

Anyone else having this bug since upgrading to the newer version of GTA?

I find the blue blips on the map for the exotic cars but when I get in them; the map glitches out.. shows no marker at the docks and when I go to the docks, the yellow circle is flashing and refuses to accept the vehicle.

(Map constantly flickering)

In some cases players are able to start the GTA Online Exotic Export or Import mission. However, in the end they won’t be able to complete it since tracking seems to be broken.


There is still no official acknowledgment on the issue by Rockstar Games. We will update this story if there is any change on the matter.
