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

If you have turned the Logging switch set to ON using the Scout Status page, a log file will be created that contains various data messages received during flight. The contents of these files are not useful for your needs, but they can be useful for troubleshooting by the ForeFlight Pilot Support Team.

To send us the Scout log files that are stored on your iPad or iPhone, please follow these steps:

STEP 1. Connect the iPad or iPhone to the computer using the device's USB cable.
STEP 2. Start iTunes.
STEP 3. Click on the icon for your device at the top of iTunes.

STEP 5. In the ForeFlight Documents section, click on the Scout data log folder(s) you wish to export. The Scout data log folders will start with the date (yyyy-mm-dd...) and end with the file extension "Scout.gdl90log" or "ADS-B.gdl90log".

STEP 7.  Select the .gdl90log folder(s) and then right-click and choose “Compress...” (Mac OS X) or “Send to > Compressed (zipped folder)” (Windows).

If the compressed archive is too large to email, you can share it with us via Dropbox. To do this, email us the link to the shared DropBox file or folder. Please have the link setting set to the "Anyone with the link can view this file" option.
