The most honest values – mileage, date, and distance. These shall not be tweaked or ‘adjusted’ to generate ‘nice’ reports or ‘beautiful’ numbers.
Odometer – this is what most likely is displayed by default. It can not be reset by regular manner, and shows usually much more than 1000 km.
Counter – what you can reset to count the distance for a day or for a travel (aka ‘trip counter’). If you choose this method you need to save the distance and remember to reset it at each record.
On the dashboard switch alike to display either ODO or TRIP.
As far as I know for motorcycles it defaults to TRIP (or at least this maybe just more convenient to use).
In any case, how you decide how to enter the distance (by odometer or by counter), you can specify this in the application settings of the car.
To preserve the flexibility of the recording is always possible to change the record input method. The program keeps a distance and odometer data entry and converts it into a global mileage.
