Whether you’re self-employed like a roofer, plumber, realtor, landscaper, in-home health provider, MLM marketer or you work for a company, tracking your mileage is essential… and painful. MileTrack GPS solves this problem by plugging in a GPS device to a car’s power adapter. Data is securely relayed through the Verizon network to the MileTrack servers. On the MileTrack GPS website, it’s simple to map, label, and categorize trips. Beautiful mileage reimbursement reports can be downloaded and turned in to your company, or used as a record for tax purposes. MileTrack GPS grew out of the founder’s own pain as a software development consultant. He was told to keep good mileage records by his CPA and, after a year of dealing with the hassle of manually tracking mileage, he set out to solve the problem using GPS technology.
