How do I get log files from my Scout receiver using iTunes?

If you have turned the "Logging" switch to "ON" using the Scout Device Status page, a log file will be created that contains the ADS-B messages received during flight. The contents of these files are not useful for your needs, but can be useful for troubleshooting by the ForeFlight developers or the uAvionix team.

To send us the Scout Log Files that are stored in your iPad or iPhone, please follow these steps:

STEP 1. Connect the iPad/iPhone to the computer using the “charging” cable.
 
STEP 2. Start iTunes.
 
STEP 3. Click on the icon for your device at the top of iTunes.
