6. Expected vs Actual Results
For us to see the issue from your perspective, it’s helpful to understand what you’re expecting to see, and how that differs from your actual experience.
Expected – The screen does not hang on “Fetching Station information”. It appears for a couple seconds, and then takes me to the Stations page where the station is listed and connected.
Actual – The screen hangs on “Fetching Station information” forever and I get stuck in the process, forcing me to close the app.

8. Images / Annotated Screenshots
A picture speaks a thousand words, and an annotated picture is even better.
If you ever need to reach out for help with your FieldKit Station or its components, a FieldKit Team Member might ask you to send the logs from the station. This will only be possible if you have had a microSD card inserted in your station for at least as long as you’ve been experiencing difficulties. It may take longer for us to diagnose the issue without these logs, so please make sure you always have a microSD card inserted in the SD slot on your station.
1. Restart Station
Ensure a microSD card is in the station and restart your station, or turn the station on and restart. On the station: Go to Menu > Use the left and right buttons to scroll down to Tools > Use the middle button to select Tools > Scroll down to Restart > Select Restart > Select Yes to confirm restart.
2. Remove microSD Card
Once the station has restarted, remove the microSD card from the station and insert it into your computer or SD card reader. A new file window should open showing at least one folder with the name of your station, and a few other files.
3. Copy Files
Copy all files from the SD card to your computer and paste them into a single new folder. For clarity, please name the folder after your station.
4. Compress and Send
Compress the new folder to a .zip file, and send it to the FieldKit support team from an account that we can use to reach out to you if we have any questions. Be sure to include the station name in your email!
