TripLog Drive™ is a built-in GPS that captures location data and transfers that data to the mLog app for processing through Bluetooth Low Energy. TripLog Drive™ can be used to track mileage independently of or in tandem with your phone. In RealTime Mode, the built-in GPS chip in TripLog Drive™ captures the mileage, eliminating battery drain and reducing data consumption. If you don't have your device or the phone battery dies, TripLog Drive™ tracks mileage in Offline Mode and later syncs the mileage to your device when connected again.
To use TripLog Drive™ with mLog, you’ll need to purchase a TripLog Drive™.
Plug the TripLog Drive™ into your car’s USB port or cigarette lighter adapter and that's it!
The lights on your TripLog Drive™ device indicate trip type and trip status.
Trip Type Lights:
White: Default Activity (determined by your business hours and related settings in the mLog app via Menu > Auto Start settings > Business Hours)
Trip Status Lights:
Blinking Light: Acquiring GPS Lock (may use the phone's GPS during search)
Solid Light: Tracking
If your mobile device dies or is not with you, TripLog Drive™ will operate in Offline Mode. Once your mobile device and TripLog Drive™ are re-connected, mLog will download the trips. The more trips you have, the longer the synchronization will take. The sync time varies by connection speed, but a good rule of thumb is one minute of sync time for every one hour of drive time recorded.
While Offline Mode is a helpful tool, TripLog Drive™ provides the best user experience when used in tandem with the mLog app. When connected to the mLog app in RealTime Mode, the TripLog Drive™ device uses its own GPS rather than your phone's GPS, thus reducing the battery drain and data consumption.
