After you follow the email or text message link to download mLog from the App Store, here is how to get started.
First, you will be guided through the initial set up, adding a vehicle year, make, model, and odometer reading. Then you will be guided to the mLog home, or Trips page. The default mileage tracking mode is MagicTrip, but you will be given the opportunity to explore other mileage tracking methods and select the one that best fits your situation:
Select the Menu icon in the upper left corner of the home, or Trips, page. Alternately, slowly swipe from the left edge of the screen to the right to open the menu.
Then select from one of these modes:
Fully automated – This automatic mileage tracking setting is the default mileage tracking mode that starts a trip whenever mLog detects movement over 5 mph. Although the easiest to use, it does consumes the most battery. Be aware that in this mode mLog may start tracking automatically when you ride on a train, an airplane, or someone else's vehicle.
To select, go to: mLog app > Menu > Auto Start On.
Semi-automated – This setting works ONLY when the phone or device is connected to the vehicle's power source. Mileage tracking occurs when any movement over 5 mph. This mileage tracking setting is convenient if you have another phone connected to Bluetooth or if you travel by air.
To select, go to: Auto Start On > Enable Auto Start > Auto Start Option > Plug-N-Go
Manual - There are two types of manual trip entries:
1. Manual GPS mileage tracking
2. Manual entry
In either case, the driver determines when mileage is captured by either manually using mLog to capture the trip or by entering the trip details manually. If using manual GPS tracking, turn off the Enable Auto Start. To turn off or disable the auto start from the Trips page, select Menu > Auto Start On > Manual Start Trip Default. To verify the settings, select Menu > General Settings > Enable Auto Start. Make sure the button is NOT green and set to the Off position.
1. Starting a Manual GPS Trip
From the Trips page, select: Green Play Button > Start GPS to start the trip. When you arrive at the destination, select the Red Stop button to stop the mileage tracking. (If you forget, the mileage will keep tracking.)
2. Entering a Trip Manually
From the Trips page, select: Green Play Button (start) > Manual Entry (NOT the GPS button) > Complete the fields (Date, Origin, and destination) > Select Save.
ALL CORPORATE account users will receive a welcome email and text message introducing them to mLog. The welcome message is IMPORTANT because it contains their company accounts information. Any user that creates their own personal account without the welcome email will have to inform their company plan administrator to get their account converted to the company account.
Verifying Account Log In (Corporate Accounts)
From the mLog home, or Trips page, select Menu > Account. If there is a string of dots next to the password icon, you are logged into your account. If the password field is empty, select Switch Account > Forgot Password. Enter the work email address and mobile phone number to receive the information to log into the corporate account. Once the email and text message arrives, select the link, and follow the onscreen instructions.
Trip and mileage data are ONLY backed up to the cloud and made available for mileage approval IF the user is signed into their account.
From the Trips page, select Menu > Account > Log in > choose Merge Data option when prompted.
mLog must be running in the background to capture mileage in the auto tracking setting. mLog MUST be opened or reopened if one of the following occurs:
Otherwise, mLog will remain off and mileage will not continue to track automatically.
