GPS Log Book

Clinton Ham - Sunday, August 10, 2014
As an accountant I often see that sinking feeling on my clients face at tax time when I ask for a vehicle log book. "Did you keep one?"  More than often the answer is a resounding “no” or “it’s so difficult as I am busy” or “it’s just too hard!” Well as of now, there’s a super easy way to keep your vehicle log book with a new device called the GPS Log Book. The GPS Log Book simply plugs into the power outlet/ cigarette lighter of your vehicle. It immediately begins logging every trip.
