Is there a procedure for closing a log, and starting a new log file? I’m finding that typically, a log file will contain older logs that I am no longer interested in. I can’t even see how to delete a log file from the app. I *do* have more than one log file, so there must be a way to create a new file – yes? Downloading logs is EXTREMELY slow, so this is important. Taking the SD card out is inconvenient, due to the fact that we have to take the meter apart.
I have tried disabling logging and re-enabling logging, but that doesn’t create a new file.
Sorry – versions:
Android app: 1.0.33 (2097)
Downloaded firmware: 1477971088
Actually, I wasn’t quite right. It’s very simple: after tapping “Load available logs”, it displays all the logs, but when I tap the one I want (which so far, has always been the most recent one), it downloads a single CSV file that contains all the logs. Each log has it’s own header in the file, but I only want the data from the log that I specifically select. Is this a bug? (it would also be nice to be able to multi-select all the logs, and download all selected logs, with the option of putting each one in a separate file, or a single combined file like at the moment, etc etc)
Sounds like a bug.. Have you checked those files from the card directly? Whole transferring logs over ble thing is quite new, it may just have a “feature” which combines everything..
If i could found my time and my mooshimeter, i would try that.. I just feel too lazy to do anything related to electrics just now, 40 hours a week seems to be enough :D
Not yet – I don’t like taking the card out, because I have to take the meter apart, and that causes PCB flex – I’m a bit concerned about fatigue if it’s flexed lots of times.
I hope one day there is a V2 Mooshimeter. I don’t mind if it gets a bit bigger. It would have USB (with the option of using that for power), and WiFi, more program memory etc etc.
Apologies – I am mistaken – it’s working properly. The reason I have multiple headers in my log is simply that I changed the log settings without stopping & restarting logging, so this behaviour is exactly how I would want it to work! :) I have done some more testing and it’s all working fine.
Hi Greg! Glad this is resolved. Quick tip: Although the slot allowing SD card removal is blocked, you only need to remove the back cover to pop out the SD card, you don’t need to pull the PCB out of the case.
Hope this helps alleviate some concern :)
Thanks James. Yes, that’s what I do – only remove the bottom half. That still causes the PCB to flex, IMHO.
