Device + App
TripLog Drive captures your mileage, and the TripLog App works as a visual display, trip management, and additional storage. TripLog Drive and TripLog App work in tandem.
Zero battery and data consumption on the phone, most accurate mileage tracker and least drag to your phone. With the built-in storage you will never miss a mile even if your phone is not available.
3 easy steps to set up:
– iOS devices with Bluetooth 4.0+: iPhone 4S and later, iPad (3rd generation) and later, iPad Mini (1st generation) and later
– Android Devices with Bluetooth 4.0+ and Android OS 4.3+
TripLog Drive has a built-in GPS that does the heavy-lifting. It connects the phone with Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy which has minimum impact on the phone battery use (less than 1%). Itself is powered by the car USB port or cigarette lighter adapter, and the power consumption is very small for most vehicles.
Please note, the TripLog Drive works the best when the USB port is powered on only when the engine is running.
TripLog Drive captures GPS data and transmits to the TripLog app for processing. The amount of data TripLog app uploads to the cloud is very small. In a typical month, one would expect the data use is less than 10M.
Yes. TripLog Drive connects to the phone automatically and relays the GPS data to the TripLog mobile app for processing. It’s the default Real-time 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. It’s the Offline tracking mode.
When TripLog Drive is powered on, the default color is White. It means the trip activity is determined by TripLog mobile app 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 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.
A blinking light means the TripLog Drive is searching for GPS fixes. Depending in 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.
Open TripLog app > Auto Start Settings > Auto Start on > choose TripLog Drive option. Then plug in the TripLog Drive. The app will automatically connect to the device and start tracking. Trip status will be shown on the app and phone notifications. You can also choose to associate the Drive device to which vehicle record in the app settings.
