For those employers who have enabled GPS capabilities, the Motus App will automatically record business stops, populate location details, and calculate trip-by-trip mileage. In addition to the key features listed above, GPS-enabled users benefit from the following:
- “Set it and forget it” - set your business hours to automatically track business mileage throughout your day
- Automatic detection of business stops
- Auto-population of address, location name, and other company-provided custom fields
- Map view shows the day’s route and stops
- Stop and trip durations are captured
- Application of appropriate commute deductions
- User-initiated option - allows you to turn off automatic tracking and record business mileage by clicking start/stop for each business trip
- Optional push notifications remind you to begin/end mileage recording each day
- Location-based push notifications remind you to input any trip details
- Route planning & optimization helps increase route efficiency
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Motus has been designed to limit GPS and battery usage, but we recommend charging your device while driving to extend battery power.
This version includes minor bug fixes. We look forward to reading your feedback at email@example.com. Happy Driving!
Ratings and Reviews
Useful for what it is
Like everyone else, I didn't choose who my employer went with for mileage tracking. This app works well without any battery consequence as long as I have it set to track in "Power Supply Only" mode. Then it only seems to run the GPS and try to track mileage while it's plugged in to power in the car.
It would be nice if they would expose easier ways to pause mileage capture for when I'm driving for personal use during business hours. For instance if I could long press "Haptic touch" the app icon and find an option to Pause or Resume Mileage capture. Or if it was exposed as a Shortcut so that I could control it from Siri. "Hey Siri, tell the Motus app to pause mileage capture" what a great feature that would be.
MOTUS does not care about their customers
My bank account information was stolen so I had to shut down the bank account and open a new one. My MOTUS payment covers my car payment (the car that I only have for this specific job) and my gas money to do my job. This payment is received by me on the 15th of every month. Now MOTUS says they will smip this payment and add it to my payment next month. MOTUS has refused to help me figure out a way to get the payment on time since they deem it as no fault of their own. Now I have to figure out a way to get enough money together to hopefully not lose this car that I have for my job. Clearly MOTUS does not care about their customers. Very poor service. I’m now stressed to the max over this. I have never missed a payment on anything in over 15 years and now I have to worry about my car being repo’d through no fault of my own. Once again.... It’s very clear to me that MOTUS does not care about their customers. The agent I spoke with said their manager has the ability to approve an out of cycle payment but would not because it was not MOTUS at fault. If they cared at all they would have at least spoke with me to see what had happened and why it was important to me. I encourage the company I work for to look for a better system than MOTUS to find a reimbursement program. Two thumbs way way down.
I’d give this zero stars if I could. Regardless of the mode you use, there are issues. If you use the “automatic” setting, it will record “mileage” for just walking around within a location. If you use “beacon” mode, it may not start first trip of the day - Motus fix is you have to “manually start recording” so, add that to the long list of things to do/remember each morning... Also with beacon, it senses other people’s beacons so if you ride with a co-worker also with a beacon, your app will record mileage. If you enter mileage manually, there are discrepancies galore - most notable, you make a round trip to a single destination and the mileage amount it uses for your initial trip is 1-2 miles different than your return trip, despite using same address. Finally, the customer service: might as well be non-existent. 5+ business days for any kind of action/response is ridiculous. This is probably reflective of the myriad of issues with this platform listed above or that are yet to happen. The only positive is the app itself is user friendly, just the whole point/premise of the technology is complete garbage. If you plan to use this, hope you enjoy being frustrated and wasting time.
