Anyone who needs to maintain a vehicle mileage log will probably agree that maintaining accurate records is more important than ever with the price of gasoline rising every day. There are a number of different reasons to keep track of your vehicle mileage; you might be keeping records for your tax return or for an employer's expense report. This article will show you a way to make your task simpler than ever before.
For whatever your reason for needing to keep track of your vehicle mileage, my guess is you'll also agree with me that it can be a very tedious chore. First you need to remember to record your car's beginning mileage and then when your trip is complete, you'll need to record the ending mileage. Don't forget to mark down the date of your trip and any necessary details.
And then there is the need to assemble your mileage report. You need to make sure you have all of your data that you've collected and then you need to assemble it into a report, manually doing a number of repetitive calculations by hand.
This task can become a nightmare when you are keeping track of your vehicle mileage log manually. But fortunately for us, the technology of the digital age has come to the rescue.
There is a new type of product available called a "digital mileage log" that will automate this task and make your life much simpler than ever before.
The tool is small - less than the size of a dollar bill and so it's portable should you have the need to track mileage in different vehicles. And it's easy to use as well.
You simply plug it into your car's cigarette lighter and turn it on. The little digital "gizmo" will use Global Positioning System technology (GPS) to monitor your car's exact location. At the end of your trip, your mileage is calculated and transmitted up to the manufacturer's website. You can then login to the website whenever you would like and add any notes necessary and download and print your mileage log.
Gone forever are the days of manually monitoring and recording your mileage. The digital mileage log takes care of it all for you and your task has just become very small compared to the labor intensive project it used to be.
For anyone needing to track of any significant amount of vehicle mileage, a digital mileage log might be just what you need in terms of making it easier than ever to manage your vehicle mileage log.
