I know that log files are created on the mobile device. They are TXT extension but are encoded.

Is there software that decodes it to produce something that can be viewed in a spreadsheet?
Is there a guide that defines the parameters and described them?

There are two tools that do a much better job:
FRAP - Flight Record Analysis Program an offline program generating a meaningful worksheet
when you run into problems converting the txt-files, try this: https://forum.dji.com/thread-150643-1-1.html
and
Flight Log Converter works in english too!
with track animation and a stunning FPV simulator

FRAP has nice simplified visualization tools, but unnecessary complexity if you just want the detailed csv file for actual data analysis - far simpler just to use the TXTlogToCSVtool that powers its conversion process.

Flight Log Converter produces perfectly good kmz files, but nothing particularly noteworthy.

And neither of them appears to read and convert DAT files, which are the more useful logs anyway.

Good tools to have available though.

And which program -does- process DAT files?
