    Anyone using or have knowledge of a computer based software (reasonably priced) to track all mx and be able to customize reminders of upcoming required mx schedules?

    I've always kept a hand written log on either logbook or currently on my dry erase board in the garage for both vehicles but would like something I can backup to an external hard drive for safe keeping. Hence the transition to the electronic log.

    Thanks for any info or recommendations-

    if you have a smartphone (android) my bias is to use a-car from the google play store.

    i use it to track everything from gas to mods to maintenance.

    forgot to add, you can specify maint schedules bases on time, mileage or both.

    Thanks for the input. Yea I had a program on my android but we're about to trade em' in for something new in a week. Not sure what OS going to go with yet. For now I was leaning towards a PC based program.

    Auto Wolf sells a software that seems to be what I'm looking for but it's $30 after free trial. We'll see............;)

    i use Road Trip by darren stone on my iPhone. Been using it for 2 years now, tracked over 100 fill ups as well as maintenance.

    It's a very well thought out software and is easy to use.

    Just an FYI if you change the date on your computer to say 1912 the free trial won't end for another 100 years. :spy:
