One of the main value-add that CarbookPlus offers is its electronic logbook - where your trip information is logged and automatically updated and where you get an overview of all your recent trips. The following CarbookPlus functions illustrate how easily this works:
1. Track one's trips. - Trips can either be automatically tracked (under Settings -> Enable Auto detection to configure Auto tracking) or the "Start trip" indication at the bottom of the home screen can be clicked to start tracking manually. Tracking inherently uses the GPS mechanism. Note how conveniently the user can click on the fuel stations icon on the "Driving mode" screen to see the fuel stations on the way. The trips are saved in the list of "Unreviewed trips" which can be reviewed and edited/deleted. Here the "i" icon quickly indicates if there is any missing/required info such as "the trip purpose". Once the trip is approved, it appears in the logbook. Any discrepancy between two trips is immediately evident to the user in the Logbook, where the "i" indicates "Trip Issues". Useful hints help the user to correct these - for e.g.: as seen here in the "Trip issues" screen. Edit icon leads to the Edit trip screen, where the missing / erroneous info can be respectively entered or corrected.
Please note: Unreviewed Trips - shows all the trips for a particular user, for all his cars/vehicles.
The entire flow is depicted in the picture below:
