A blinking light means the TripLog Drive is searching for GPS fixes. Depending on the reception, usually when TripLog Drive is powered on for the first time during a day (or “cold start”), the search time is 30s – 2m. On a subsequent start (or “warm start”), the search time is 1s – 5s.

When TripLog Drive is powered on for the very first time, or on a rainy or cloudy day, the search time could be up to 5m.

When TripLog Drive is powered on, the default color is White.  It means the trip activity is determined by TripLog mobile app’s Auto Start settings; e.g. M-F 9-6 are for Business, other times are for Personal.

If you press the button/light once, it changes to Blue and overrides the trip activity to Business.  Press again, the light changes to Green, and it makes the trip Personal. Press it one more time, it changes back to White.

The trip activity is determined by the color of the light at the time when the trip is stopped, so you can “change your mind” while the trip is still running.

Yes. TripLog Drive connects to your phone automatically and relays the GPS data to the TripLog mobile app for processing. It’s the default real-time tracking mode.  

With TripLog Drive’s offline tracking mode, if for any reason it cannot find the phone, it will store the GPS data on its built-in flash storage and can be later downloaded and processed when it connects to the app.
