Manual vs real-time tracking

When you tap the A plus symbol icon plus sign in the app menu, you'll see that there are two ways to log your mileage in the Driversnote app. 


Start tracking a trip tells Driversnote to start recording a trip immediately (in real-time).

  • The app will track your location via GPS until you tell it to stop (by pressing the red Stop button in the top right corner). 
  • After you stop the tracking, the entire route will be added to your logbook.

Create a manual trip lets you enter a trip that has already taken place. 

  • Simply enter the start and end locations, and the app will use Google maps to calculate the most likely route.
