How to automatically calculate the distance for manually entered trips

Updated over a week ago

When manually entering drives, Hurdlr Premium users can automatically calculate the distance of their trips based on the starting and ending location.

To automatically calculate the distance of your trip:

  1. Navigate to the Mileage Dashboard

  2. Tap the ‘+’ sign in the top right corner of the mobile app or click the ‘+Add’ button in the top right corner of the web app

  3. In the Start Location field, type your starting address

  4. As you type, you’ll see a list of addresses appear

    1. The first entry in the list will be exactly what you have typed, and will show a paper icon to the left

    2. Below this, other suggestions for the address you are typing will appear with a map icon to the left

  5. Choose one of the options that appears with the map icon

  6. Follow steps 3-5 to enter the End Location

  7. Based on the start and end locations, Hurdlr will automatically calculate the total miles

If you select the first address with the paper icon to the left, the distance will not be automatically calculated.

If you want to track the start and end time of your drive, you can enter the time you finished your drive in the Arrival Time field. Based on the automatically calculated duration, Hurdlr will automatically calculate the start time of the drive.

When manually entering trips, you can also use the Round Trip feature to automatically generate the return trip for a manually entered drive, saving you even more time. Check out this article to learn more.
