The data inside the instrument can be deleted using one of the two methods  
- Using the Manager 

- Using the Bulk Eraser utility

Using the Manager 
Pro: Easy one click action in the same application
Con: The instrument will take longer to start when connected back in the car , as it needs to do the delete task before working again.

Using the Bulk eraser

Pro: The instrument will only have to find satellite signal when connected back in the car, less wait time before you can use it.

Con: You need to download and start a different app to delete the data.

Deleting internal data inside the instrument does not delete any data already in your database.

Before you delete 

  • Do a sync 
  • Validate your data is OK
  • Make a backup of your data 

Remember , TripLogik does not store any of your data , you are in charge of your files and backups and privacy.
