Hello, Does anyone know how to download track logs or flight logs from the IFDs?
And if you download the logs how do you look at the tracks, etc?
Thanks.. I am trying to reconstruct flight logs.

Here is a copy of my post from Jan 2017:

I enjoy being able to review a flight in Google Earth. I wanted a way to do that without having to activate tracking on my portable GPS. Therefore, I wrote this python script to pull the data from the flight log (and the system log, due to Avidyne not putting the GPS altitude in the flight log). It appears I cannot attach these files to the forum, so I've made them available via DropBox if you are interested.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/twyenjrjvhjya21/AACT8YrCX0orXGJDHVwS4Laka?dl=0

If you are comfortable running a python script, you are welcome to them. Copy down both files, and run ifd_fl_to_kml.py -h to see the documentation. The end result is a kml file per flight that you can open in Google Earth to see a 3-D image of your flight path.
