How do I get log files from my Garmin system using iTunes?

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

To send us the Garmin 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.
