Frequent Drives 2.0 (iPhone)

Note: This version is only available for some iPhone users and is not yet available for Android users. 

MileIQ makes it easier than ever to automatically classify your drives with the new Frequent Drives feature!

Simply classify your drives and MileIQ will automatically detect those that happen most frequently and offer to auto-classify them in the future. You’ll be notified within the app when drives get auto-classified. You can then edit and view specific drive details from the web dashboard.

Setting up Frequent Drives:

After a drive has been classified the same way two times, an auto-classification notification will appear at the third drive.

This is an image of the Frequent Drives drawer populating on the MileIQ mobile app.

The prompt includes a reminder of the classification and three options:

If you’d rather not see these prompts again, see below for information on how to disable the feature entirely.

What makes a drive a “Frequent Drive”?

Any drives logged with the same start and end point, regardless of route taken, will be available to mark as a Frequent Drive.

How can I add notes or other details to a Frequent Drive?

Notes and other drive details can be added to a Frequent Drive from the web dashboard. Simply click into the drive to edit any of the information and press “Save” once finished.

How can I reclassify a drive that was accidentally marked as a Frequent Drive?

To change the classification of a drive, login to the web dashboard and select a new classification from the “Purpose” column.

Where can I go to review my Frequent Drives?

The web dashboard has a complete history of all your drives, including those auto-classified using the Frequent Drives feature. To sort by Frequent Drives, use the “Auto-classified” filter above the drive list to edit drives one-by-one or as a group. Auto-classified drives will also be designated with the This is an image of the auto-classify symbol. symbol.

How do I manually setup auto-classification rules?

At this time, the Frequent Drive feature is completely automatic and will appear after a similar drive has been classified the same way two times.

What if I take the same trip but for different purposes?

The Frequent Drive feature works best for drives that are taken each time for the same purpose. We recommend classifying as you regularly would for instances where you may be driving to the same location but for different purposes.
