I use Automatic for business reasons. I like how I can record trips for my millage report at the end of the year. It would be awesome I could name the trip or even leave a note about that trip so I can remember where/why I went there.

Agreed.

And since Automatic is always running anyway, it could also record trips when We are NOT connected to the device, to get the full info (like for rental cars, friends, spouses vehicles, public transit, etc. )

It would be good to be able to export a spreadsheet of this info as well.

Hi VBob2k. In order for Automatic to work properly, your phone must be connected to the Link with an active cell connection. The Link doesn't have its own data connection or GPS module, so it relies on your phone for this reason. Check out this FAQ for more info.

Have you had a chance to check out our web dashboard? With it, you can export past driving data into a .CSV file. This FAQ has more details.

Well if we want to get crazy we could ask for it to record to odometer at start and finish for IRS reasons.

Thanks for the idea, Derek. What are your thoughts on a trip tagging feature? Here's a link to the related topic (it's currently under consideration). As for the odometer suggestion, this is a feature we're planning to add in a future update to the app :) There's no ETA at the moment, but see this topic for more details.

Any update on if this feature will be added?

I would say this is my biggest challenge with wanting to possibly just use another app as I can't track why I marked a trip as business which is just as important as marking it as business.
