iOS mobile app Bluetooth feature

Category:

By activating our new Bluetooth device monitoring function, your partner visits will be recorded fully automatically, no need to press a single button!

However, to use this feature, you need to have the data and Bluetooth turned on on your phone. You can find these settings on your phone with a location and icons similar to the one in the picture, in the drop-down menu at the top, or in the Settings menu of your phone:

We use GPS positioning and data for recording only when you arrive at your destination point, so your phone battery and data usage are as low as possible.

You can find this feature in the MileageWise mileage tracker app in the Recording options menu.

Click on the Car Bluetooth monitoring box to read about the advantages and disadvantages of this feature.

Read it to see if this recording option is the right one for you.

If you have decided this recording method is the best option for you, you can select which of your Bluetooth devices you would like your phone to monitor by clicking on the checkmark in the upper right corner.

If your vehicle has built-in Bluetooth, click on the name of your vehicle’s Bluetooth to connect to it. Then, in the popup window, click Setup to make sure your location is set to “Always,” or click “I’ve already set it.”

If your vehicle does not have built-in Bluetooth, select the Bluetooth device that you only use and connect to in your vehicle and will only charge it in your vehicle. For example, a Bluetooth speaker that you plug into a cigarette lighter or your vehicle’s USB port.

What should I do if my phone doesn’t recognize a Bluetooth device or I want to add a new Bluetooth device to my phone?

In the Recording options menu, click on the Car Bluetooth button, then click on the checkmark icon. In the Managing Bluetooth device menu, press the red plus button in the lower right corner.

The application will automatically navigate you to your phone’s Bluetooth device interface.

From the Available Devices list, select the device you want to pair with.

Then go back to the Managing Bluetooth device menu in the MileageWise mobile app and select the newly paired device.

After setting up the Bluetooth connection, when you arrive at a partner already in your partner database and turn off the ignition in your car, your partner visit data will be saved automatically.

If your nearest partner is within 0,6 mi of your arrival point, your partner visit will be recorded with that partner data.

If no existing Partner is found within the 0,6-mile range, the app will automatically record the location as an unknown partner (Anonymous Partner). The Anonymous Partner will be saved with your default trip purpose, which you can change in the Settings / Profile menu.

If the nearest partner at your destination is from the Filling station category, the app will send you an alert, and will immediately navigate you to the refueling / charging data interface for entering the refueling / charging details.

We’ll send you a notification when we start recording your partner visit. By pressing and holding the notification for 20 seconds, you have the option to abort the recording by clicking the Abort button.

We’ll automatically notify you when your partner visit is saved.

Your partner visit will be recorded in the Fixed trips menu as usual.

If you want to use this feature permanently, we recommend deleting the previously set Recurring daily trips on the MileageWise web dashboard to avoid duplication.
