I am 16 and just got a car. My dad wants me to track miles that I do for personal reasons so I can pay him back for gas. I could just write down the mileage before and after every trip but I feel like it could be easier. I am looking for a good app that will use location to track how far I drive. I want to be able to get in the car and activate the app, and when I come back home, deactivate it. Then it will tell me how far I drove for each trip. I have service in most places I go, so that's not a big issue. Any suggestions would be great!

Thats going to kill your battery. I've used tracking apps for cycling, such as MapMyRide and Strava.

But after a quick search I found this app: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/miletracker-mileage-tracker/id428948751?mt=8

TrackMyDrive - iPhone Mileage Tracker

Hello,

My name is Steve, I am the creator of http://trackmydrive.com

I was frustrated with a lot of the mileage trackers that were out there so I decided to create TrackMyDrive.

I have tried to make the interface as easy as possible. When starting a trip, you simply click "Start Tracking" and it will track your trip through GPS. At the end of the trip, you name it and it uploads to a http://trackmydrive.com

You are able to print out reports and also manually add trips as well. Here is the link for iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/trac...ve/id504448321

Let me know if you have any questions, I am glad to help.

Thanks!

Try Extra Mile - http://itunes.apple.com/app/id439589978

It will track your miles, origin, destination and even chart your driving pattern.
