[prMac.com] Iowa, USA - KB Productions announces Car Care 1.20, a new version of their popular gas mileage and maintenance tracking solution for the iPhone. Fuel economy is automatically calculated for iPod Touch and iPhone users, using miles or kilometers, gallons or liters, in the user's units of preference: MPG, L/100 km, MPG (UK), or km/L. Reminders for services appear on the app's badge icon to help avoid missed services, such as oil changes or tire rotations, for multiple vehicles.
Car Care 1.20 adds customizable service types, custom reminders, custom fuel octanes, improved data entry methods, and support for all international currency.
Custom service types allow Car Care users to track any type of car maintenance action imaginable, including tire rotations, car washes, or tune-ups. All service types can have an associated reminder for each vehicle in your garage: for example, users can set a reminder for their car for an oil change every 3500 miles, and a separate reminder to check the chain tension on their motorcycle every month. Users can enable or disable reminders at any time.
Customizable fuel octanes allow users to track specific types and octanes of fuel. After specifying fuel types, Car Care automatically calculates fuel economy numbers for each different fuel type; this includes Unleaded, Super, Gasoil, GPL, Diesel, and E85, in addition to any other fuel measured in liters or gallons. Car Care identifies which fuel type produces the best fuel economy to help save money at the fuel pump.
All worldwide currency can be used with Car Care 1.20, from US Dollars to Euros, Sterling Pounds, Yen, or anything else that can be entered using the iPhone's keyboard. Fuel quantity entry can be done using either the picker wheels, or the new keypad number pad entry. Odometer values also have picker wheel or keypad input method options.
Japanese iPhone and iPod Touch users will find Car Care's user interface has been localized. Car Care is also available in English, French, and German.
Car Care 1.20 allows entry of an automobile's insurance number, license plate, VIN number, and a photo of the vehicle using the iPhone's camera or the photo library.
Pricing and Availability:
Car Care is available for $4.99 (USD) exclusively at the App Store.
