Several people using one car - Carpooling usage.

Using this data for myself is educational but largely: "Nice to know".

We have several drivers in my family for the same car and all have an iPhone or an iPad with Bluetooth and Location Services. I'd like to share costs of the car based on actual usage. So I'd like to be able to see the summaries by user, and for several App users the be able to use the same car data (this I checked is possible already now with one login).

For starters we can use same login, but it would be great if you could have a distinct marker where you could have some metadata about "Whos" drive it is. In this era of increasing Car Pooling this usecase might be useful for many.
Understandably each user would need to have a cellphone with the application on it.

There's been a lot of discussion of tagging trips by purpose (for expense/tax reasons, etc), this would be another great use case for a tagging feature.

Thanks for the suggestion, Carl-Magnus. Would the multi-user feature work for your purposes? All users would have their own account and each would go through setup with the same Link. Then, you'd all report back to each other on -- or show each other -- your weekly summaries. That way everyones' trips are tracked distinctly.
