I''ve been using this App for a while and it has been working great. I''m finding that the log file generated by "Email support" contains lot more interesting information, such as the availability of Internet, Location Service, etc.

Is there a documentation for interpreting the log file?

For example:
2016-11-27 22:22:22 Stale location time=22:12:57 cutoff=22:14:22
2016-11-27 22:22:22 Network location 49.2094 -123.129 -1.0 1414
2016-11-27 22:22:22 dist=303.1, threshold=20.0
2016-11-27 22:22:22 Will replace current position 40.8, -1.0
2016-11-27 22:22:22 Location 49.21XX -123.13XX -1.0 65

How to understand the above data, esp. "49.21XX -123.13XX"?

Many thanks!

Agree that these numbers are long. and lat., what I''m interested is how to understand the "XX" part.

For example, it''s easy to plot on Google Map of (49.2094, -123.129), but the "XX" digits of (49.21XX -123.13XX) must be somehow substituted to make it work. Does anyone know how to fill in the "XX" digits?

Thanks.

The coordinates were masked in the log file. This is so to protect your privacy. You can pull these numbers from your map page. Click the location history and you can see them on Google map.

Many thanks for the above clarification.

I looked at the log file generated by "Email Support", and the log seems go back to only about 7 days. Is it possible to retrieve a longer history of the log, say a month ago?

The purpose of the log file is solely for troubleshooting purpose. It is set to a fixed length and cannot be extended.
