[Solved] Mobile App: bad locations and times
Several of the sightings from a recent outing were tagged with correct locations and times, but others had both incorrect times and incorrect locations. Could this be because my GPS had not yet locked in on enough satellites? (Does the recorded sighting time come from GPS?)
Also, in earlier versions of the Mobile App there was a track file in the emailed download, but now I don't see it. What happened to the track?
Thanks for writing and for sharing your comments about the Mobile App for BD.

It is still there. You need to enable sending track info in your email. On the Finish Outing window, click on the wrench icon. There is an option there to send the track info. You can resend your outing by,
- Start the App
- Click on the Completed Outings button
- Select the Outing in question and click on the "eye" button to view it.
- Select Finish Outing from the ":" dropdown menu.
- Click on the Wrench button
- Select "Attach track export file"
- Click OK
- Click Send and Close
- Please send a copy of both the sightings export and the track file to me at support@BirdersDiary.com so that I can see them both.
Let me know which sightings you feel were incorrect.

As for whether the time comes from the GPS unit or the phone clock, I have to check the code and I am not where I can do that currently.
When you say incorrect locations, do you mean incorrect Lat/Lng or what?
Please send both files to me at address above. We will get to the bottom of this.
