Trip Loggin for Tax Reimbursements

New feature: Trip Log

For businesses with a vehicle fleet, fuel bills make up a considerable share of total expenses. To lower these expenses, recording business mileage for tax reimbursements can be a hassle – especially when done on paper – but the benefits make it worthwhile. The latest feature of GPSLive tracking software – Trip Log enables business owners to identify business and private uses of fleet vehicles, allowing managers to easily distinguish mileage done by company vehicles between business and personal use for tax reimbursements. GPSLive enables companies to record all trips done by vehicles in their fleet; once the data is collected from the vehicles, the new Trip Log feature can be used for identifying the mileage and figuring out tax deductible trips.

    Brian j Snook..

    Hi.. can you tell me would it be cheaper to use PAUG or buy 12 months because we go away for 7 months of the year in the motorhome, i would like to know before I order.. you read a lot of things in question and answers you don’t which way to turn. This is for the DB1. Or do I look at something else…. and will it be ok to go straight to the battery for power I do have solar panels on top 2, 80w, it charges the vehicle battery as well when it stands up for months on end. So hope you can help . Thank you for all time … reply soon….

    Regards BJSnook….

    • Rewire Security (verified owner)

      Hi Brian,

      Thank you for your message.

      Regarding our Tracking Service, this will include GPS live subscription and an M2M SIM card (including all the data that Tracker requires).
      All our tracking devices are supplied with our M2M data-only multi-network SIM cards. These sims don’t belong to a single network as they can roam between multiple networks and pick up a signal from whichever network has a better signal. You`ll also get free Europe coverage, there are no roaming charges.
      This SIM is included in the Tracking service and you can choose to pay £5 for 1 Month, £15 for 3Months, £30 for 6Months or £60 for 1 year.

      As you`ve mentioned that your Motorhome has solar panels installed, the device that will be suitable for your vehicle is DB1-Advanced.
      For more details about the unit please see the following link https://www.rewiresecurity.co.uk/db1-gps-tracker-telematics-device

      Please leave a note in the order that your Motorhome has solar panels so we`ll adjust the configuration for your GPS tracker.

      If you`ll need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Anthony Jones

    hiya would it be possible to move the DB1 LITE between vehicles i.e car/ motorcycles

    • Rewire Security

      Hi Anthony, yes it is possible to move the db1-lite between vehicles, as long as there’s a power source and you are comfortable with re-wiring the tracker to a new vehicle.

  4. 5 out of 5

    C Rafferty

    My car has a ctek charger attached
    What product do you recommend? Db2 or db1 lite
    Do these products have an anti-tamper alert?

    • Rewire Security

      Hi Rafferty,

      An ideal GPS tracker for a vehicle that has a Ctek charger will be a DB1-Lite model with one Digital Input and 1x Digital Output. Model DB2 is a basic GPS tracker with simple wiring and it is not a suitable option in regards to combination with a Ctek charger. This will cause that the tracker will never go the sleep mode and therefore, the device will be using more data and also the battery.

      Regarding the anti-tamper alert, you`ll be able to set up a “Power-Cut” alarm with any of our GPS trackers directly from your GPSlive account and you will be notified if the tracker is removed.

    Gyles Harden

    Hi, I want to buy an alarm or tracker for my daughters first car but is the DB1-Lite Compact recognised by insurance companies?
    Also is there a monthly payment for the GPS tracking via your App or is it one fee to purchase the tracker and that’s it?

    • Rewire Security

      Hi Gyles,

      DB1-lite compact is a great solution for keeping an eye on your daughter 24/7 (to improve her safety).
      Other than purchasing the tracker, you need to subscribe for GPSLive service which includes software, app, and SIM card usage that’s inside the tracker.
      But I’m afraid the tracker is not recognised by insurance companies.

  6. 5 out of 5



    Is it possible to remotely disable a car which has been stolen – i.e. cut off the fuel supply?

    • Rewire Security

      Hi Jay,

      Yes, it is possible using the DB1-Lite. You can use the app to send a command to the device to disable the car (it will be disabled once it slows down, to avoid an accident).

  7. 3 out of 5

    Barry Wilson

    Hi does this need to be attached to the battery?

    • Rewire Security

      Hi Barry,

      Yes, the DB1-Lite requires wiring to the battery of the vehicle.
      It has a backup battery that will provide enough power for a few hours just in case.

  8. 4 out of 5


    Hi, does this need to be mounted flat or can I tuck it securely on its side behind a metal motorcycle panel?

    • Rewire Security (verified owner)

      We would normally recommend positioning the tracker flat on the bike where possible with the sticker facing upright. However if you don’t have this as an option then you can place on the side with the sticker facing out on the side as the GPS/ GPRS module positioned below this to pick up the best signal.

  9. 3 out of 5


    Waterproof / splash proof?
    If no, could I place it in a poly bag ?

    • Rewire Security (verified owner)


      The DB1 Lite is not IP Rated, If you are looking for IP rated tracker have a look at the DB2this will be a better-suited tracker for Motorbikes.

  10. 3 out of 5

    George Manson

    Nowhere, that I can find on your site, indicates how to install the unit(s) {e.g. DB1 Lite} into a car. Does it need special tools and/or experience?

    • Rewire Security

      Hi George, for self-installation we recommend using the DB2-Self-install, it’s easier and only requires wiring of 2 cables and has an installation video guide.
      For the db1-lite you can find the installation instructions in the User Manuals page here : https://www.rewiresecurity.co.uk/dl

  11. 4 out of 5


    So, I’m gonna fit a DB1 lite to my motorcycle.
    What’s the difference between connecting the yellow to an ign fed live and not connecting (just using just the red and and black wires)?

  12. 5 out of 5

    Tony McGhee

    Hi, I am looking at the DB1-Lite Compact for my campervan, is that suitable. Also what is the yearly cost. I know I buy the tracker and the service plan. Do I have to pay for a sim card contract as well.

    • Rewire Security (verified owner)

      Hi, The DB1-lite is a good choice for a campervan. 12 months service is £60 and this also includes use of the tracker’s data sim card as well.

  13. 5 out of 5


    Hello. In the event my car was stolen, do I have a choice of cutting off the fuel supply and/or blocking the restarting of the car’s ignition after it has stopped. Devices being considered are the DB1 – lite and DB1 – Advanced Waterproof. Please also advise any other different options and benefits between the 2 devices. Thank you.

    • Rewire Security (verified owner)


      Thank you for your question. With the DB1-advanced tracker, you can purchase the optional ignition block relay that will allow you to block the car from being started in the event of theft.

    Chris Naylor

    Hi, I’ve got a driver that is using our vehicle for personal use…….I’m wanting something to track where he goes out of work time.
    What would you recommend & what would the cost be to purchase plus the subscription etc ?

    • Rewire Security (verified owner)

      Hi, One of our team will be in contact via email.

    Csaba vass

    I am quite happy with this device and have been using it for 2 years now. Lately I had to uninstall the battery several times as it was being depleted by the trekker due to standing long times courtesy of covid. I have noticed when installing the trekker that there are sparks when installing the second lead. Is that normal as nothing else such as heated grips produces sparks?

    • Rewire Security (verified owner)

      Hi Daren, One of our team will be in touch via email shortly.

    Richard McMahon

    Is the disable signal continuous, i.e. if signal is sent, what is the voltage of the output signal and one triggered is it continuous so it will energise a relay until told to stop?
