7/12/16: Just released version 2.0 with Metric Support. Check it out here!

Hi. My name is Ken.
I rolled MyRideTrac out in the US about 2 months ago. I drive rideshare and designed the app specifically for rideshare drivers. There have been requests to put a kilo/litre switch into the app for everyone else who is metric. I am testing the app now with metric support and was wondering if there are any folks in Australia who would like to be a beta tester. The app is iOS only at this point. If so, please email me at [email protected] and I will send you a note with the info I need to add you as a tester.

Hi. I was wondering if you get a mileage discount for driving for Rideshare?
Ok. I did some research for Australia and it looks like you get to write off your expenses prorated by business/personal miles. MyRideTrac will track your business miles (RIDER/NORIDER) and your PERSONAL miles. You can also log all of your expenses into V2.0 of the app (in test now). I have an analysis module in design that will do the proration of expenses. Hope this helps.

You are indeed advanced there in OZ. Yes... it is an undocumented feature, but it tracks miles and expenses for multiple vehicles. I drive two vehicles myself. I change the name of the vehicle in the SETTINGS screen. The spreadsheet you receive should have all mileage and expenses tagged to a vehicle name. Version 2.0 tracks KMS/Litres. It is for iOS only right now...

If you would like to be a beta tester, please send me a note at [email protected] and I will send you a note with the info I need.

Thanks for your questions.
Do you have a info page somewhere that explains the app and how it does this? Is it a log book entry app, or does it use the GPS to track kms etc?
MRT: The app uses GPS to track kms in the background. It then creates a spreadsheet with name, vehicle name, startdate/time, enddate/time, kms driven, calculated deduction (you can set this to zero for locations that don't have a per/km deduction).
You log your expenses into the app and it prints them into the same spreadsheet. You can filter or pivot table the results.


Errr you basically mean anyone who isn't in the USA..... All the places that use metric are shown in green. Heck even the USA army/air force use metric. Why not everyone else in the USA?

MRT: Yeah... I know, but it was developed in the US first and tested in the US. Just was practical to do it that way.

Thanks Instyle for the link. MyRideTrac will work both ways (cents/km and logbook) for AU. When you use the SEND REPORT function in V2.0 of the app, it essentially is sending you a log book that records your mileage as well as the expenses you log into the app. Just trying to make your day a bit easier.

Just Released version 2.0 of MyRideTrac. In this version, we have added the following new features:
  1. Dual Switch Metric support for the world. It works in the U.K. too!
  2. Ability to track ALL of your expenses using an easy to use screen.
  3. Elapsed time added to SEND REPORT spreadsheet file. Total your elapsed time or total by category using filters (for example, see how much time you are driving in NORIDER (empty) mode.
  4. Local Currency symbol and format support (of course!)
See a quick overview video here:

Go to www.MyRideTrac.com to see more.

Thank you to all of the Australian testing crew who helped make sure the app was working!

I received word that the video links on the help pages were non-responsive. It turns out that the iPhone doesn't really like links in PDFs... The new pages should be a bit more responsive. Thanks for the feedback!

Good question from the technology forum. Yes, you can add mileage and expenses from previous trips (made before downloading MyRideTrac) by adding rows to the spreadsheet that is attached to the email when you use the SEND REPORT feature. Google Docs or Excel work best. The spreadsheet is your log and you can add rows for previous mileage and expenses.
