Product Overview / Features (Continued from Home Page)
After setting up the unit (which takes minutes) plug it into your car’s cigarette lighter. Pressing the Work or Personal button tells the unit what you are driving for. The unit’s built-in GPS will then track where you go. Leave it in your car for the year, month, week, day – whatever you want. When you want to know your total miles, just plug it into your computer and print the summary report which can be handed to your accountant for your taxes – or use it yourself with your own tax software. If you ever need to see a trip, look at the detail travel – which then shows each trip individually – starting and ending point, as well as date/time/distance. This is what the IRS would want to see as well – the detailed trips. These trips are stored on the device until you decide to remove them – so you are ready in case you are ever audited.
This sounds pretty easy – but we have tried to make it even more fool-proof. If you drive during set hours, say from 9-5, then tell the unit your schedule and it defaults those trips to “Work” – now, you don’t even need to press the button! This schedule can be set up differently for each day of the week if needed.
The EM LOG gets power through its USB cable – either from your computer or your car’s cigarette lighter (our adapter is included). It also has a built-in rechargeable Li Ion battery which can vary in life based upon how much you drive . While you can turn it on/off manually, the unit will turn itself off if it stays in one place for 5 minutes. It will also turn itself back on as soon as it senses power through the USB, or within 2 minutes of it sensing actual movement (like the car starting to drive).
We have tried to make the EM LOG the Easiest Automatic mileage log on the market. Try it and you will agree – it is EASY!
Please note that device is equipped with auto shut off when not in use, or idle this will allow the battery life to last much longer.
