Mileage tracking has stopped working.

I've followed the instructions offered at Everything on my phone settings is as it should be EXCEPT Significant Locations. 

Your instructions are "Make sure Significant Locations (Settings > Privacy > System Services(all the way at the bottom) > Significant Locations) is ON." There is no such setting on my iPhone. I'm up to date with iOS 12.1.4 and my Quickbooks Self Employed app is up to date. 

I have recently purchased a new vehicle and am using CarPlay for the first time. Mileage tracking stopped working the same day I purchased the vehicle. About one of every ten trips will record (or part of a trip). Could CarPlay be interfering with the app?


Hi there, yayamaine,

I appreciate you taking the steps to update your phone and QuickBooks Self-Employed app to make the mileage tracking working again.

There's one more thing you need to do, make sure to add your new vehicle information so you can track your miles.

Here's how:

  1. Select the Cogwheel on the upper left.
  2. Scroll down, then select Vehicles.
  3. Choose the Plus (+) sign on the upper right.
  4. Select the vehicle type and enter a nickname.
  5. Select Save on the upper right.

Once done, you can do a test drive to make sure that the updates work successfully.

You may also visit this page for additional information: About the Miles page and vehicle info settings.

Keep me updated on the progress by posting a comment below. I'm always glad 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.
