How do I send you log files from my Garmin system?

Method 1 (For ForeFlight version 10.1 or later.)

If you have turned the logging switch to ON using the Garmin 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 Garmin log files that are stored on your iPad or iPhone, please follow these steps:

STEP 1. Within the ForeFlight app go to MORE > DEVICES.
 
STEP 2. In the blue banner at the top, tap on the word DEVICES three times.
