GPS Log Book review

GPS Log Book

KISS – I just love simple, easy to use tools which make my life easier and help cut out the hassle. The GPS Log Book is one of these things.

Basically it is a device which looks like a car charger for a cellphone which you plug into the lighter socket and leave to do its thing. Voila. Simple, hey.

When you want a report you plug it into your PC/laptop and it automatically downloads all your trips and puts it on the database on the net. You then pull the reports as and when you need them.

You can use it to monitor your or a driver’s behaviour, how fast he drives, when and the route. You can see all the stops, which you can name. It automatically produces tax and other reports, which you can tailor for your own use.

The trip report includes a map of the route driven, start time, stop time, avg speed, max speed and duration. You can add notes to the trip report which then forms a permanent part of the history. You can identify which are private and which business trips and who the client is, if applicable. It is very easy and intuitive to use.

The GPS Log Book system consists of 4 items:

  • GPS Log Book device
  • Sync Application
  • Web Interface
  • Reports

The GPS Log Book Web Interface is the backbone of the GPS Log Book system. It allows the user to manage their device/s, view trips and add locations as well as many other useful functions including various reports.

A SARS compliant log book can be generated for use with the ITR12 Income Tax Return for Individuals. Data is stored for more than 5 years and can be viewed at any time if required.

All of this data can be accessed from any location, on all major web browsers, using the intuitive Web Interface with the administrative functions for the GPS Log Book.

A cable is provided to plug into your PC. The device has a USB port so that you can plug your cellphone into it to charge while it is still plugged in and working, in the car.

You need to have internet access to do the reports and update the database.

The URL is:, go and check it out.

At time of writing it costs R849. It comes with a 12 month warranty.

  1. I don’t leave many comments, however i did a few searching and wound up here GPS Log Book review Wheelswrite. And I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it just me or does it appear like a few of the remarks come across like they are left by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing at other places, I’d like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.
    Would you list of the complete urls of all your public sites
    like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter

  2. I personally think that the Little LogBook GO is the updated version of this device with way more features and benefits. I have been doing research on SARS LogBooks for Tax claiming purposes and came across the Little LogBook. It’s a nifty little device that cuts my admin time in half and in my opinion looks better as well. I got one about 3 months ago and I would highly recommend this devise to people who are looking for a gps electronic log book.
    If the author of this blog could write a review of the Little LogBook it would be an interesting read for sure!

    Have a look at the Little LogBook :
