I rely on the fuel logbook, and it's not part of mobile app. So, I either have to log in from desktop machine later, which is a small hassle, or else go to main site on mobile device, which loads odd fonts and is challenging to navigate.

I'm requesting that the fuel logbook feature be added / integrated into the mobile apps.

There is no feedback from GBO that I am aware of except the odd statement in a moderator's reply to some post. I don't know where user/member input winds up. "Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?"

The "Suggestion List" is not and official GB site. It is populated by CampKohler and it has whatever CampKohler has deemed worthy to be on the list whether the suggestion has merit or not. There are many topics on the list that no longer exits. In other words, the list is just to keep CampKohler busy.

CampKohler: So do the GB admins ever look at the Suggestion List and provide feedback as to when (or if) they plan on implementing any of these suggestions? (It's been a while since I've been on the forums so I'm out of touch with how things work since I've last been here.)

Also, I had posted suggestions/feedback directly from the Mobile App. Do you know where that feedback ends up? Is it on the forum somewhere or sent directly to the s/w developers of the mobile app?

I am very interested in the fuel log book on the mobile app that can sync up to the websites data.

Also a place to keep track of car maintenance numbers. Say when you changed your oil and when to change it next. It seems I alway write it on the sticker but it fades or falls off. Or write it on a piece of paper and then I lose that somewhere.

Also, I was have a curiousity to track how many miles I drive below 45 mph vs. miles I drive over 45 mph....If I used a GPS tracker that would transmit information like that and kept a log of this info, I could easily decide whether or not a hybrid vehicle would be worth my money. If I only drive mostly highway miles, then it most likely wouldn't. If I drive 40% highway miles and 60% 45mph or under, then it could still benefit me.

I use / for my fuel log. I didn't even know gas buddy did it until tonight. It would be nice if it was in the mobile app and if it was a car expense log too, ie. oil changes, brakes, ect.

On my iPhone, I use GasCubby. There is a free version that from what I recall only lacks the ability to sync data between devices. Among other things, it allows you to record the data you are interested in and eliminate fields you don't care about.

I might use the fuel log book if it were accessible via the mobile app. In fact I've been looking for a good fuel log book mobile app. Anyone know of one?
