Mileage Tracker: GPS tech comes to the rescue to help with your expenses

mileage-tracker.pngPerhaps now isn’t the best time to remind you that (if you have to do the dreaded Tax Return) you’ve a little over a day left to complete it.

However, if nitty-gritty stuff like car mileage tracking has been a real pain to calculate then the Mileage Tracker could be the answer.

Using GPS (naturally), it can track what distances you’ve travelled in your car and export it to a CSV file (boring) or Google Earth (cool).

It’s not available yet and the specs aren’t exactly detailed so it’s hard to tell if you can let it know which trips are for business and which for pleasure. It’s a nifty little device though.

Don’t expect HMRC to get excited if you turn up at one of its offices with a laptop running Google Earth and a plot of your journeys for the year. A spreadsheet might be better after all. Snore…

No word on its availability or price at present, so it might not make it over here in time for next year’s tax bill.

    so why are we talking about a product that isn’t available, isn’t priced and isn’t ready for market yet?

      Because it’s good to know what’s possible, what’s coming soon, what the gadgets of next Tuesday are. Isn’t that enough?

    think you need a bit more of a story with this as this isn’t really a news story in its current form. Perhaps you could write about why you like Michael so much
    It is hard to say such a thing is clear.
