Plug-N-Go with Android

If your vehicle doesn't have Bluetooth or you want to use the Bluetooth for another device, you can use mLog's Plug-N-Go mileage tracking. This tracking style tracks your mileage whenever your phone or device is plugged into a vehicle's power source.

And don't worry, mLog won’t record if you are not traveling more than 5 mph, so feel free to leave your phone to charge overnight. 

How to Use Plug-N-Go

To set up and use Plug-N-Go to track mileage, follow these steps:

  1. Confirm that Location Services are set to "Always Allow." From the home, or Trips page, go to Menu > Auto Start ON > System Permissions > Location Permission. This should be set to "Always Allow."

  2. Next, go to Menu > Auto Start On > Auto Start Option > Select Plug-N-Go.

  3. Then go to Menu > Auto Start On > scroll down to Auto Start Timeframe > Business Hours Start Time and End Time. Set your hours, and this will complete the settings

  4. When you are ready to take a trip, plug your phone into a power source and start driving. Once you reach 5 mph (default speed threshold), you will hear an audible chime and see an onscreen notification that a trip that has been started. 

  5. When arriving at the destination, stop and turn off the vehicle and disconnect the phone or device from power. The trip will automatically stop.

  6. The Edit Trip page will remain open for approximately 10 seconds. You can make any edits to the trip (i.e. naming a location, adding a note or tag). If you don't make edits, the trip will automatically close and save.

  7. If the trip auto-saves, you will see an onscreen notification confirming the trip was saved.
