Description

GPS Mileage Log-Lite (Free) and GPS Mileage Log-Pro (1.99) are the fastest ways to track your business mileage for tax purposes, easy as 1-2-3.

GPS Mileage Log-Lite is Free and does the following:

No need to scribble down or input odometer readings and calculate your mileage. Once activated the GPS Mileage Log will calculate your mileage as you

drive even while the app is in the background.

1. Hit the GPS ON Button and start recording your mileage using the iPhone built in GPS system. Mileage is displayed on the screen. Feel free to test the accuracy against your car's trip odometer, it's FREE.

2. Hit the GPS OFF Button to end a trip.

3. Enter a brief purpose and destination and hit SAVE.

That's it !! You've got everything you need to satisify the IRS.

Your trip's description, miles traveled and a date/time stamp are added to the "Trips Log". When you're ready

go to the "Manage Log" screen and email the log to yourself, your employer etc.. These are electronic devices and accidents happen so I suggest

emailing the log often. ALL THE DATA IS STORED ON YOUR DEVICE UNTIL EMAILED. The email will contain a comma delimited file (.csv) that can be

imported into most programs (spreadsheet etc), edited (if necessary) and printed providing proper IRS documentation. See IRS Publication 463 for details.

GPS Mileage Log-Pro:

Costs 1.99, is ad free and does everything GPS Mileage Log-Lite does PLUS:

1. Allows the creation and maintenance of two separate vehicle logs.

2. Does all the math for you!! Calculates the deduction value of each trip and creates editable mileage log(s) including all the totals needed for immediate IRS submission.

Excerpt from Publication 463

"What Are Adequate Records?"

"You should keep the proof you need in an account book, diary, log, statement of expense, trip sheets, or similar record."

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Simple, accurate

:
Although I've only used this for a short time, I find it very accurate and simple to use. While there are apps out there that do much more, this one is exactly what I needed -- track my miles, and make it easy to back up those files (via the email feature) to my computer. The fact that it is so simple to use means I'm much more likely to keep better track of my business miles.

I do have one suggestion, though. The current version does not have any means of differentiating between vehicles, a minor problem if you use more than one car or truck for your business. A work around is to simply add a number or letter code in the "purpose-destination" box that refers back to each vehicle, but it would be nice to have a drop down box that allows you to select a vehicle.
