I would consider using this if it had sync via Dropbox - better yet, WiFi. I'm not interested in registering with or passing my data through some random company's servers to sync.

I decided to implement syncing via our website https://car-traxx.com in order to provide a web-based interface for my iphone customers who own either windows or linux desktops.

Also now that I have released an Android version of the product you can also sync your data over to another user in the household that owns an android phone.

Trying it out - do most of my own maintenance. So far seems to work pretty well. Took a few minutes of figuring out how to add services that were not listed - but the general services and line items works great.

Help on the website is good - take a minute and read it.

Still needs a lot of work regarding GUI but it is most certainly a good idea to work on.

@Dev: Please consider a GUI rework. Look at other modern GUI. For example, do not use grey (metal look) windows because those are deprecated a long time ago.

and we have an art critic for a $10 app. Functionality is most important. We should be thankful developers sell for such low prices.

I just downloaded the trial before purchasing from the App Store. The Preferences are greyed out so I'm not sure if there are any preferences that can be adjusted or not. I'm in Canada and require an app that tracks litres and kilometres, not gallons and miles. If the app can't do metric I suggest updating it so it can. Until then I won't be purchasing. Thanks.

I'm currently working on updating the app to allow for litres and kilometres. The next version should have this feature.

Nice try, but a bit unintuitive, IMHO. I tinkered with this for a couple of weeks, but simply could not figure out some very basic things, like how to schedule maintenance. I know that it should be easy, but it seems overly complicated, as it is not a mere matter of entering mileage and then saving what you've entered.

Perhaps I'm just too much of a luddite to be able to figure out a simple $10 app!

To schedule a maintenance such as your oil changes, add a service to the car you want to track. Choose Oil Change for Service type. Every time you have an oil change add it to the maintenance history and it will automatically calculate when the next service is due.

The company website http://www.traxxsoftware.com has some screencasts that show you how to do a simple setup. It is available under the Help section of the website.

Hope this helps.

I am currently evaluating Car Maintenance. I like the new report of service due -- thanks, it was sorely needed.

I don't find the mileage report useful FOR ME. But years ago I would have liked it since I tracked every tankful back then.

I've have issues where the software is NOT trapping errors, such as if I enter something other than a year in the year field. The program crashes.

I found it not possible trying to enter past services performed without reading the how-to guide; after reading it, it now it is easy.

I will probably pay for this program near the end of my evaluation period. It performs the basic functions I am after.

I used to use Car Companion (very similar functionality) but it has not been updated to the latest Mac OS.

Thanks for the bug report. I'll look into the issue with the year field.

I downloaded this app and it opens but then I get this message: "Persistent store migration failed, missing mapping model" and new menu item is not functional. I also noticed on your web site help page it's supposed to be a DMG file but when downloaded it's a ZIP file. I've trashed the app and pref files and re-downloaded it several times with the same results. I have an earlier version 1.0 (22) that I tried and it works just fine. Very puzzling and I'm not sure what's going here. Hopefully the developer will fix this.

Version 1.0 is a very old version of the program and the database will not upgrade properly from that version. I had not realized that there were any users still running a version older than 1.4. I'll try to put in a fix for this in the next version that will allow a conversion from databases older than version 1.4. Sorry for any inconvenience.


Ok it's working ok now. Thanks for the fix.

Opened - No Problem
Added basic data for one vehicle - told program to save - Problem

Restarted program - same scenario - would not save any data and quit
