Review: Odometer+ Mileage Tracking App

If you travel a lot for work like I do as a real estate agent, having a mileage tracking app on your phone is essential.

Although there are a ton of apps for this type of application, my favorite one is Odometer+.  As of the date of this writing, you can find a version for both the iTunes Store for $0.99 as well as what appears to be an older version on the Google Play Store for free.

I used to keep a written log of my mileage and that was cumbersome, inefficient, and prone to errors.

I’ve also used other apps that were clunky or had too many features that I didn’t need or want.

What I like best about Odometer+ is that it’s simple and easy.  I can get in my car on a way to a listing appointment or to show some homes, hit the “start” button, and then forget about it until I get home and click the “stop” button.  It keeps track of my mileage to the hundredth of a mile and I don’t need to do anything else.

When you’re finished with a trip, you can also save that entry with a title and details.  For example, I will write a basic headline such as “Jen Smith showing.”  If I go on the highway with tolls, I’ll add more info to the entry by adding the toll amounts to the description so I don’t forget how much I spent.

For tax purposes, of course you want to be able to pull up a record of all the miles you’ve driven.  That’s easy in Odometer+.  All you need to do is have the app email you your history and you’re set.  Everything you did for the entire year is right there in a simple file.

Not only can you use this handy app for driving, but since it’s just a general GPS tracker, you can use it for walking, running, biking, or any other motion activity.

In real estate, I’m in my car a lot.  The Odometer+ app makes remembering where I went easy and efficient.
