Does warming up your engine count towards trip time?

When I'm heading out for work, I warm up my car for a few minutes before leaving. Does that count towards the time taken for the trip? My guess is the app only checks the time between engine on and off instead of when the car starts moving the first time, but I hope it's the latter.

Hi Billy. Yes, any idling time counts toward trip time. A trip starts with ignition-on and ends with ignition-off.
