Would it be possible to view the last 24 hours of the log via the web interface? The log on the phone contains lots of useful information, it would be nice to see this without visiting the phone.

Thanks

You are talking about view location history, right?

To view the location history, you can do the following in the map page of the FollowMee web site.
- For desktop browser, you can select the Current Location control under the map and select one of the history type.
- For mobile browser, you can click the Option button on the top of the page and select Current Location. Then select one of the history type.

I mean the verbose log you see on the phone, telling you when uploads have taken place, how many times you''ve been in the same place etc. The info on the phone is nice to see, very helpful, it would be nice to see this log via the web interface.

I doubt that many people care about the logging. This information is mainly for diagnostic purpose. As long as the map page shows current information, who cares about the log.

Being able to see the diagnostic data on the webpage would be helpful. In drive mode, it would be nice to be able to see if there are no tracks because location cannot be determined or if power is not being supplied.

On the map page (complete site), you can perform some diagnostic on your tracker. You can view the tracker stat, including the driven/parked stat (ie charger power state). You can view the tracker error. This cannot compare to the full log. But it does not provide some insight and it is a lot easier to digest.

Thanks for the reply. Is this referring to the information at the bottom of the map?
Battery: 80% (01-09 10:10 am) (01-09 10:10 am) Tracker: tracking (01-07 07:50 am)
Or, is there another diagnostic function?

I''ve found a solution for my needs by auto syncing the log file.
Thanks!

nsnr8r:

Yes, that is the stat right below the map.

Can you share how to sync the log file? Other users might have the same situation.

My solution is fairly complex, only to find that it was the phones scheduled on/off function that was preventing tracking. I had to make an app to do exactly what I want, but I would bet that there are apps that support Wi-Fi sync from a device to a PC or a way to turn on Blue Tooth at a specified time so that the file can be accessed from a PC.

I wrote my own code to upload the log to my webserver at a specific time. From there, I parse the file and append the data that I want to a table that holds the tracking data.

I plan to output my own KML file, so that tracks can be distinguished for each powered cycle.

Four years ago. And nothing like this has been implemented. OFFS.

The device I am attempting to track is set for the shortest interval (10 mins). I assume the log has an entry for every 10 minutes, if the app/service is running on the device and it is powered on? The options are set to note the GPS being toggled on or off. I assume the app can notice power-down and reboot/restart events? And all of these are being logged, I hope? Add that to all the info mentioned above and yes that log can be useful.

Four years. Nothing added to do what nsnr8r build to run on the side. I.E. Save the entire log.

This does not make me want to start paying for this four year old app for which the development has apparently died or whose developers apparently ignore feature requests that are as simple and useful as this one.

The development is not idle. Instead development effort is focused on more important issues. The log is intended for developer, and not for users. Developer uses this log file to trouble shoot app issues. In order for users to know about the status of the app, we have added app state (tracking or stopped), battery level, critical error messages, like disabled location service, battery optimization issue. This should help troubleshot most of the issues on a daily basis.

Sounds good, however, that log *can* be useful to us - so please reconsider this as a ''remote control'' level option. (I.E. send a request to the device that sends that entire verbose log as a data block to your server, which then emails it to the account email address, for example. You can have a reasonable cool down (hour(s)?) on the request - based on the period covered in the log data involved.)

For now, when I download the log from the map page, I do not see the battery status of the other information for each entry in the CSV. How do I access that or toggle an option so that the additional data points appear in the CSV report download from the map page?

The battery history is not saved right now and therefore you cannot download the battery history.

Is the battery history saved in the device''s dev log file?

Where (in what directory location) is the dev log file located on an Android device? On an iOS device?

Thank you
