On my web dashboard, allow me to assert an actual odometer reading at the start or end of a given trip, and you then display calculated odometer readings forward and back from that point. Actual odometer readings should be accepted throughout my dashboard drive history, and a number could be displayed giving a calculated total of miles that were not captured by Automatic (in other words, my phone wasn't in the vehicle during those drives). The primary point of this ability is to make it easier to complete a mileage log in which some odometer readings were captured, but some were missed.

Hi Daniel. There are a few different odometer requests here in the community already. However, this one seems a bit unique as you're talking about providing a way to track it on the Web Dashboard rather than in the app.

Thanks for the suggestion!

I would add that, sensitive to the issues that have prevented you from providing this functionality in the app, you could add a prefix or suffix to the number showing "est." for estimated or "firm" for a number that I actually entered, and possibly showing my firm numbers in black and the estimated numbers in grey. There are a number of similar approaches that would let us recognize at a glance which numbers are estimates, and which are actually readings from my mileage log. A "Confirm" button beside an estimated number would let me quickly mark that reading as being a match for my log, for example. Thank you for considering this!
