Mileage tracking from starting value. Not only see a dashboard of your vehicle('s) current mileage but also as a way of Automatic error reporting and improvement. I've noticed through my use of a Google sheet to track my mileage and update a current mileage number, there is an error of 1.1% where I find myself correcting missed mileage and I feel that if Automatic had a feature that allowed an input of a starting mileage for a given vehicle and then a timestamped correction log to capture the vehicle('s) observed odometer mileage from time to time, both Automatic and the user would benefit.

Thanks for the suggestion, carguybikeguy! Unfortunately, GPS isn't always perfect, but our team is continuing to work on improving the accuracy of trip data. As we continue to build new features into the product, we will look into different ways for users to log their trip data.
