Trip Mode?

I have had the Android aCar PRO application for a few years, but I have never really used it in the way it was intended.

for LONG trips (a week or more) I have needed to use several apps for fuel & expense entries, trip tracking, odometer entries, etc., while traveling in the car.

I was hoping that you could go into a "trip mode" that you could lock-into so every entry would be associated with that trip (ex: "Trip to NYC") and when you finish the trip, you can go back to the 'normal' mode. Then you could view or export all the records fro that trip.

I asked the aCar dev for some tips, and I was told to just put the trip name into one of the fields, but the field didn't exist! Well, I think it did, but when I viewed the records, I could not locate the field or sort/filter them by that field.

I'd like to ask for tips on how to simplify entries that you make during a trip, or can I contact the devs to add "trip mode" to the application?

Hi,

I typically use the "Purpose" field for that type of info.

I don't see a "Purpose" field in either the Trip Record, Expense Record, or Fuel-up record entry screens. The Trip Record entry screen has a "type" field, which pertains to things like Personal, Business, Emergency, Moving, etc.

The closest thing would be the Tags field.

I believe your best option is to use "Tags".
