In order to use the features of the TrackMyRide web site, users are required to have a user account. User accounts uniquely identify the site visitor to the site and allow multiple users to access the site simultaneously.
Each user is required to have their own user account. For security and auditing purposes, visitors may not share user accounts. If the system detects that a user account is being used on more than one device, the account will be disconnected from the first device and only the last visitor using the account will be allowed to continue to access the site.
The TrackMyRide application have two different types of user accounts, free and commercial accounts. Free accounts are limited and may have a maximum of three devices per account. Device information may not be shared between free accounts. Commercial accounts are charged a monthly access fee based on the number of devices controlled by the account. Commercial accounts may share devices and have access to many features not available to free accounts.
A complete comparison of accounts may be found on the TrackMyRide.us web site.
