TripLog App Manual Tracking Trips or Manual Entry

Pressing the Green Start Button will bring up options for recording your trips.

You will have the choice of GPS Tracking or Manual Entry

Manual GPS Tracking

When Starting a Manual GPS Tracking Trip, the app will take your current location and set it as the start point. You will then see the “Running” trip status and the red line. This is an indication that the app is Currently tracking. To stop the trip you can simply click the Red Stop button at the bottom. At any point you can click on the red line to edit details of the running tip. (see Editing a Trip below) Once you stop the trip you will be prompted to edit the details and save the trip.

Widget : There is a widget available to start and stop the app from the notification center on Apple phones as well as a screen widget available on Android devices if supported.

Manual Entry - This will allow you to manually enter the details of your trip then save them. To complete a manual entry trip click on the Green Start then Manual Entry. Once you enter/select the From and To locations the trip will prompt you to accept the Mapped Distance and Driving Time for the two locations. You can then update the Odometer Start and End if you have those details. Clicking on the Show Details Toggle will expand the trip to show the start and end time details.
