Car Expense Tracker

Quick look: Driving expense calculator for Palm or Pocket PC

Executives zooming across the highways and byways in their cars need to be able to accurately and efficiently track their expenses.

Car Expense Tracker from Global Star Software of Mississauga, Ontario, makes it easy to record how much you spend on gas, insurance, maintenance and repair with an intuitive interface that puts everything into the proper category.

I tested the program with a Palm 5. It was extremely easy to use; you just have to remember to enter your expenses'every expense'into the program.

The true value of the program occurs over time because it can regurgitate data back to you as straight text or easy-to-read graphs.

If you manage a fleet, Car Expense Tracker can help you manage several vehicles. Especially if you have a color screen, it's easy to see where your automobile money is going and exactly which vehicles seem to be eating up the most money.

For such an inexpensive and easy-to-use product, Car Expense Tracker is a real winner. If at any point in your workweek the rubber has to meet the road, Car Expense Tracker can make sure you do it in a smart and efficient manner.
