Smile [APP]DriverDiary v1.7.1 - UPDATED 06-27-11

Hi XDA faithful! We have just updated DriverDiary to version 1.7.1 adding some minor bug fixes. We have also released a new website as well as Facebook and Twitter pages. Check them out and be sure to follow us and share with your friends!

http://www.sweypro.com

DriverDiary tracks fuel mileage, expenses and parts. The free version offers many features and is not limited like most other free vehicle tracking apps. It is ad supported and it does lack a couple features from the pro version, but is otherwise fully functional.

The Pro, paid, version adds the ability to take and store pictures of your fuel and service receipts, schedule automatic backups and is the first app available that allows you to sync your data between a server and multiple devices.

DriverDiary:

Thanks,

Track your fuel economy, expenses and parts with a familiar, user friendly interface and keep tabs on your vehicles.

No more looking through that gigantic filter book just to find out the page you need has been ripped out! Have all of your vehicles information at your finger tips and at your side all the time.

****PLEASE: If you encounter any bugs or errors, please email us or use the "Report" button so we can attempt to resolve the issue before leaving a bad rating and/or a bug report in the comments. We can't reply to the comments to help you or notify you when the bug is fixed. We fix bugs quickly when they arise and we want you to contact us. DriverDiary is built on customer suggestions and feedback and we want to earn that 5 star rating from you.****

Very good application, but I live in Brazil and want to use the units in my language.

Is possible to Internationalize?

Because I think another people likes to use in others units.

My units are: Km instead Miles, Liters instead Gallons.

And another think is to create new Gas Station, I fill up in a BR gas station.


Excuse-me for my English, I'm learning still

Nice app! Have installed it and will try it out over the next few weeks.

One thing I'd love is a service due reminder. I do my own servicing, and it would be handy to be able to specify a time/mileage when an oil change/service is due and have the app remind you...just a suggestion

Thank you for trying it out. You can change the units in the settings menu.
Menu -> Settings -> Unit of Measure

You can select km/L and DriverDiary will change the calculation and the text throughout the app to Km and L.

We are also working on localizing the app to other languages.

You can create new gas stations from the menu also.
Menu -> More -> Stations

Here you can add/edit/delete stations.

You can also clear all the stations from the table and start fresh since you are in another country and won't use the US stations that are pre-populated. You can do that from the following menu option and just select to clear the data from the stations table.
Menu -> Data Tools -> Reset Data

Default Is 'elapsed time' included as an entry field?

I just saw this on the home page and haven't pulled it down yet, but I have a query:

When I record fill-up information I make sure to get the following bits of data:

Price per Gallon (from the receipt)
Total gallons on this fill up (from the receipt)
Total engine 'on' time spent since last fill up (from the car's trip computer)
Total mileage achieved since last fill up (from the car's trip computer)

Those four pieces of information let me calculate, among other things:

Average Miles per Gallon
Average Engine Time per Gallon
Total Engine Active Time

The time information is useful if you use your car infrequently and lets you more accurately determine when you need to go on for oil and fluid changes.

Is this type of data entry included?

Hi.

Thank you for your interest and question.

At this time DriverDiary does not allow for engine/running time entry. This does seem like a cool feature to be able to track how long your engine runs for and other data based off of that. We will put it in the queue and add it in a future update.

Thank you for the wonderful suggestion!

Thanks,
Ed
