The phone app keeps missing days of travel. No reason why that I know of. It is missing August 10th, yet it recorded everything on either side. 9th and 11th!


Hello there, vincehill.

Let me help get your mileage tracker working properly so you can get back to business.

There are a few possible reasons for your mileage tracker to stop working. One of which is making sure that your mobile app version is up-to-date. The current version for QuickBooks Self-Employed Mileage Tracker and Taxes (For Android users) is 4.65. While the latest version for QuickBooks Self-Employed Mileage and Expense Tracker (For iOS users) is Version 4.34.3.

In addition, you may check the following settings of your phone:

  • Make sure that WIFI or mobile data is enabled.
  • GPS and Location services are enabled.
  • Auto-mileage tracking is enabled on the mobile application.
  • You are logged in to the correct QBSE account while tracking the trips.

Once completed, you can do a test drive to see if it tracks all of your trips consecutively without interruption.

If your tracker stops working again, I recommend contacting our Customer Care Team. They have tools to pull up your account in a secure environment and check your mileage tracker.

For additional information, check out this article with detailed troubleshooting steps about Troubleshooting Automatic Mileage Tracking Issues.

Don’t hesitate to leave a comment blow, if you need further assistance while working with your QuickBooks account. I’m always here to help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
