Maintenance Tracker ( VMT ) collects vehicle
maintenance data and shows when
tasks are due. The
flexible format handles virtually any type of vehicle ( i.e. cars,
motorcycles, scooters, large vehicles etc. ). Mileage ( or kilometers
), costs, providers, service tasks and service dates are all tracked and saved.
Data input, on-screen reporting, and future maintenance are all available in
a convenient one window tabbed interface.

- VMT uses the System Preference "short" date ( see International
prefs, format tab ) to display dates. It expects a 10 character format
( or 8 if leading zeros are suppressed ) such as that shown
below. The format shown is mm/dd/yyyy but any 10 character format is
fine ( i.e. dd/mm/yyyy as in Europe or yyyy/mm/dd )
