Product Description

“Car Maintenance Reminder Pro” is an all-in-one car application that helps you to: (1). Keep track of mileage, fuel efficiency and cost; (2). Log car services, and get maintenance reminder when a due date approaches.

For the fuel logging function, the application automatically generates useful statistics about MPG, gas price, driving distance per day, volume per fill up, cost per day etc. It also provides TEN graphical charts (2.0.1 and up) for detailed and clear reports of your car’s mileage, fuel economy, costs etc.

For the maintenance reminder function, the application provides comprehensive logging and reminders for almost all regular car services based on both mileage and dates, such as oil change, tire rotation, wheel alignment, air filter change, coolant flush, transmission fluid change, brake pad change, timing belt replacement, annual inspection and spark plug replacement. Even more, you can create your own customized service reminders, and write notes about your cars, such as part number, state registration, appointment time, mechanic shop phone number etc. With just a glance at your phone, you will have all the service records at hand! Notifications at status bar will automatically show up to remind you when a service is due within a week, or 200 miles, so that you will never miss a needed maintenance.

You can manage multiple cars in the application (Pro only), export data to external SD card and restore the saved data. Multiple units are supported (km/mi, US gal/UK gal/liter). You can customize the application to only show information you care about, and you can choose reminders you want to get. You can also customize the frequency of reminders showing in the status bar.

With the application, you can keep track of everything about your cars, save money, extend their life, and have a safer car!

I am pretty good about the oil, but not so good about everything else. Some reviews have eluded that its not very customiziable, but they probably have not looked deep enough. Under Customize Display, you can select what fields you want to show up on your profile page. I hid stuff like cabin air filter, windshield washer blades, etc. You can also adjust the mileage settings for the reminders under Maintenance Settings, but it does not adjust the Months from what I can tell. I also like the MPG tracker. I do check my mileage almost every fill up, but dont track them. Its a good indicator that something needs to be checked if your MPG is changing but your driving habits dont. A nice app that will get some use. Thanks!

EDIT: I've come to find out that this runs constantly in the background and you cannot get it to quit... even if you uncheck all the notifications. I HATE THAT! I wanted to use this to keep track and log when I do maintenance. I can open it on my own, thank you. Will uninstall until this is changed.

Update 6/29/11: Since it appears that the last update allowed users to shut the app down each use, I re-downloaded. It appears to stay off now and I'm happy that I can contiune to use it. The only confusing thing that remains for me is that you can set the time interval for each car specifically, but the mileage interval is universal for all cars. Where is the logic in that? Its not that big of a deal, but they should all be universal or all be car specific just to be consistant.

Last update was horrible - completely messed up the database from the previous version. Then when I chose to import the last backup - it erased all my records. If you are going to do an update - make sure you export the old database and save it first. At least you will have something to fall back on if the update screws your records up.

It tracks the basics by default which is nice but you have the ability to add custom maintenance intervals like new tires which is great. It can break down $/mile or mpg or just about every stat you could need to see just how much your vehicle is costing you in maintenance and gas.

Update: Only bug I can find is that if I'm at the pump putting in my information and I get distracted and the screen on my phone goes off, when I come back all the info I entered is gone. Not a big deal but kind of a pain.

I would love to be able to put more information about my vehicle in like trim, engine size, etc and then somehow compare that to what other people are getting with the same vehicle.

I've used this app for almost two years. I was on version 2.5 and when I updated to 3.x I lost ALL of my maintenance records! The less important gas mileage data imported correctly. I downgraded to version 2.5 and all my data imported correctly.

I contacted the developer and never received a response. Other users are having the same issue, but the author has not commented on anything.

After the update it forced closed on me every time. I did a uninstall/reinstall and now all my data is gone? My last backup came down but its a couple months old. Any way of getting all of my recent data back?

This tracks EVERYTHING, including your gas mileage. I like that it doesn't lock you into certain measurements, like changing your oil every three months or 3,000 miles. I'm not a big fan of how it has you set everything based on both mileage and time but I just set the time to the maximum allowance so I hit the mileage first.

I track three different cars (one being a motorcycle) and it is hard to remember how all three of them have been serviced. This is a great way to stay on top of the required maintenance especially since you are looking at it every time you are adding gas to your car. Granted, you won't be tacking a fleet of cars, but if this can handle three with the greatest of ease then this will be great for any family.

The price of the app is perfect, especially since the maintenance itself is where the real money is spent... and saved considering the life you can add to a car with proper maintenance.

My only complaint is that it doesn't have car types for motorcycles. I just put it under 'Other' and don't have things serviced like the windshield wipers and things. So it works for the motorcycle, but I'd love it if they would build motorcycles into this. It would even increase the potential market of this app for the developers.

Pretty much what I was looking for. Does everything, including customizable fields for each interval for those of us that don't go by the "recommended" everyday settings or those with older vehicles which require more frequent changes.
