GPS Log Book Product

  1. This page is intended to provide you with all the necessary information in regard to the use of, and the terms and conditions applicable to such use, of the GPS LOG BOOK (GLB) which you have just purchased or are about to purchase.
  2. Purpose

    The GLB has been designed to record, electronically, the distance covered by a specific vehicle so as to be able to accurately compile and produce a “log book” which can be easily supplied as evidence of travel. The GLB system does not offer tax advice and you should always consult your accountant or tax advisor as to the suitability of the GLB before using the GLB for tax purposes. As such it is designed to function and operate within the United Kingdom.
  3. PLEASE NOTE: you must have a functioning computer and reasonable internet access in order for the GLB to record, update and store the travel you have undertaken through our website. You should not purchase the GLB if you do not have access to the internet as it will not serve its purpose of being able to complete and present a “log book” for the purpose of providing evidence of travel.
  4. Quick Start and Operational Guide

    1. Remove GLB carefully from packaging.
    2. Access the internet and go to the following web address: www.gpslogbook.com/uk
    3. Click on downloads and select the application specific to the operating system used by your computer e.g. Windows 7.
    4. Download the selected application which will enable the GLB to synchronise with your computer and the web based services offered.
    5. Connect the GLB to your computer using the USB cable supplied.
    6. A registration page will appear on which you can record your personal details. You must enter the GLB device details (as requested) and link it to one specific vehicle.
    7. Once successfully registered a message will appear on screen notifying you of this fact.
    8. Your GLB shall then be operative and can be plugged into your car’s cigarette lighter to record the details of your journeys and can then be “uploaded”, using the application you have downloaded onto your computer, to create the “log book”.
    9. Once plugged into your cigarette lighter the LED light on the GLB will turn red until such time as it has obtained a GPS fix and then it shall turn green. This means that it is operating correctly. You should from time to time check to make sure the green light is on.
    10. In order to be able to produce the “log book” or various reports offered by the GLB, it must be connected to your computer and the information uploaded. It is strongly recommended that you do this at least once every two weeks. Should you not do so, the GLB may not operate as efficiently as it is designed to do.
    11. You must designate the trips, on the website and through the application, which the GLB records as either “business” or “private” in order to be able to compile the “log book” and differentiate between types of travel. It is your responsibility to properly allocate your “business” and “private” travel.
    12. At the end of the reporting period run the report function on the website which will then produce all business travel in a report which you can include as evidence of business travel.
