Smartphone mile tracker and trip log for iOS and Android Phones


Frequently Asked Questions

1) Where can I find a Quick Started Guide or Help Manual?

Please see the blog entry, “Quick HOW-TO for MileBug Beginners

2) How do I transfer data from Lite to Full?

Please see the blog entry, “Transfer Data from Lite to Full

3) How do I restore my data from a backup file (.mbdata)?

Please see the second half of the blog entry, “Transfer Data from Lite to Full“. The process is the same.

4) How is a backup different than a report?

A backup file (.mbdata) generated from the Backup tab is only readable by MileBug and is intended to provide a way to restore your data should your device get lost, broken, or have other problems.

A report is generated from the Report tab and provides a human-readable report of your trips that can used for tax or reimbursement purposes. Reports can be generated in either HTML or CSV (spreadsheet) formats.

5) How do I edit Businesses, Destinations, Vehicles and Purposes?

Select the “Presets” tab and choose the category of items you wish to change. Destinations are business-specific, so first choose the Business, then you will be able to edit the destinations for that business. Please see the blog entry, Editing Destinations and Purposes“.

6) My Android phone won’t let me send reports or do backups. It says there’s not enough space on my SD card. What do I do?

The newer phones require the additional permission of SD card access. Go to your App Manager and then grant SD Card access to MileBug and you should be good to go. This will work even if your phone doesn’t have an SD card.
