I wear my fitbit all the time. I have never had it track mileage when I am driving. Your body is generally stationary while driving and since fitbit isn't GPS oriented this should not be an issue. I am sure Fitbit staff can explain it much better than I did but mine tracks my mileage accurately. Love my fitbit!

As far as I have noticed after having it for almost 2 weeks, the One doesn't count steps, distance, or altitude changes (that's how it tracks floors climbed, 1 "floor" = 10 feet up) while in a vehicle.

Yes. I travel with mine every day (over 100 miles) and my step count doesn't change while I'm in the car. The Fitbit is pretty accurate.

Hello, it has been fixed my job consists of driving many miles a day and my readings have not been inflated due to travel.

for the day or so I had it - it seemed to be counting steps accurately... even when I was driving

I just got my Fitbit One, and it tracked thousands of steps on our trip to Disneyland today (June, 2014). The car was a smooth ride, too. There's a couple workarounds, but it will entail remembering to either log driving as an activity and the amount of time or else getting the Drivebit app and using it.

I had one bsck in June for a week. I ended up returning it because it would track hundreds of steps every time I was in a car. And it wasn't a bumpy ride or anything. It did the same thing when I was flying on a plane and all I was doing was sleeping.
