Just charge your phone or pair with a bluetooth device when you enter your car and My Mileage logs your tax deductible mileage effortlessly and efficiently. If you have to manually enter data at every stop, then why not use pen and paper?
With blue tooth, you can configure My Mileage so that all you have to do is hop in the car and start driving. This works because blue tooth devices will automatically reconnect when in the vicinity of a previously paired device which will kick on the GPS. Once the GPS detects you are over 20 MPH, My Mileage will start a log entry.
Plug your phone into the car charger or connect to blue tooth and it will automatically log the miles for tax purposes and track the odometer changes. Take phone calls, listen to Pandora, My Mileage does not need to be the active application.
Take full advantage of your phones capabilities to track tax deductible business and charitable expenses.
Use your camera to scan an image of receipts.
Email your data off the phone with all the receipt images and a nice spreadsheet.
When your phone is plugged in, My Mileage sits in the background and uses GPS to log the miles for tax purposes.
It uses your last entry to default the expense type, vehicle used, and odometer reading. Talk on the phone, listen to Pandora, My Mileage does not need to be the currently active application.
Pair your phone to a blue tooth device and configure My Mileage automatically start when paired with that device. This feature is useful for cars equipped with blue tooth like Ford Sync. For cars not equipped with Bluetooth, one can buy blue tooth car kits. The advantage of blue tooth is that most phones will automatically reconnect when a previously paired bluetooth device is nearby.
When you are ready, have My Mileage package all images, an Excel report, and a back up your data in a zip file.
Send the zip file to yourself, your accountant or your manager for expense reimbursement.

If you find this application useful, please rate it with 5 stars and leave a comment. It would help us out tremendously.
Caveats: Mileage accuracy depends on the quality of the phone's GPS, weather conditions, if the GPS has been on recently and where the phone is placed in the car. Mileage accuracy has been compared to other Google developed applications and My Mileage has similar accuracy. We are constantly trying to improve, so please email any problems.
If you are still reading this why are you not downloading the application to try it out!
