TripLog Drive™ is a built-in GPS device 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, eliminating battery drain and reducing data consumption.

To use TripLog Drive™ with mLog, you’ll need to purchase a TripLog Drive™.

You just plug the TripLog Drive™ device into your vehicle's USB port or cigarette lighter adapter, and that's it!

TripLog Drive™ Auto Start Troubleshooting - iOS

If synchronization between your TripLog Drive™ and your phone is taking a very long time, be aware that sync time will vary based on connection speed and how many trips you took. A good rule of thumb is one minute of sync time for every one hour of drive time.

If you run into problems using TripLog Drive™ independently of your phone, be aware that the best user experience will result from using the device in tandem with the mLog app. The paired mode uses the TripLog Drive™ device's GPS rather than the phone's to reduce battery and data consumption, but this requires keeping both devices near each other.

If mLog doesn't detect your TripLog Drive™ device, try these steps:

  1. Open iOS System Settings > Bluetooth to confirm Bluetooth is enabled.

  2. Open iOS System Settings > Privacy > Location Services > mLog and make sure the location services are set to "Always Allow."

  3. Verify that there is not an issue with your vehicle's USB charger by plugging the TripLog Drive™ device into a computer or wall charger to see if the lights turn on.

  4. The TripLog Drive™ device works best with USB ports that are powered only when the vehicle is running. If the USB port receives constant power (even when the vehicle is not running), the auto start may not work correctly. Also, when installing the TripLog Drive™ device, remember that the GPS works best with a relatively clear line of sight to the sky.

  5. After rebooting your phone or device, it could take up to 15 minutes before mLog detects the TripLog Drive™ device. If, after 15 minutes, the TripLog Drive™ device is still connected, select the mLog app icon so that mLog will remain in the background.
