QBSE app mileage app on iPhone is duplicating trips. My app is up to date.


Hello there, bcarter156,

You need to ensure that your iPhone's iOS is up to date and settings are enabled for mileage tracking. This is to ensure there aren't any duplicate trips recorded in QuickBooks Self-Employed.

Here are some iPhone settings that you need to set to "Always":

  • Location Services
  • Background App Refresh
  • Motion & Fitness
  • Cellular Data
  • Mobile App

For the detailed steps on how to enable the needed phone settings, kindly refer to this article: Fix Mileage Tracker for your iPhone

Once completed, you can do a test drive to check if the suggested fix above works.

If the issue persists, I'd suggest contacting our QuickBooks Self-Employed Support Team to investigate further what causes your trips to duplicate.

Please let me know if you have other mileage concerns in QuickBooks Self-Employed. 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.
