Will it still log trips if I'm in another car without the OBD II adapter?

I usually drive my own car but sometimes drive my housemate's. I don't want to swap the adapter back and forth. Will it still log trips if I carry my cellphone while driving my housemate's car?

No. The adapter is a key component in our product. It's not possible to log a trip in a car that does not have an adapter installed and set up with a user's app.
