Nothing - you will need to order the leads (493L) and shoulder bag/pouch (493SB) as separate products.

I cannot find the spark-e-log app in the Apple app store?

Try searching in Iphone only apps


How to resolve the issue when 493BTL does not seem to send the attachments even in an email?

This is a permissions/security issue with the very latest version of the Android operating system (Version 6.x or simply "Marshmallow").

This can be manually fixed by doing the following:

1) Open Android Settings, select "Applications" from the settings list and then "Application Manager".

2) Scroll down the list of installed Apps and tap on "Sparkelog".

3) Select "Permissions" then slide the option button next to "Storage" across to ON (to the right).

Note: This only needs to be done once.
