Can't import Google Maps Mileage

I am trying to import trips/mileage from Google Maps in QB Self-Employed but I am getting this error for past couple weeks. I have followed all steps exactly that are mentioned.

Re: Can't import Google Maps Mileage

Hello there,  saadsiddique.

 

Let's try to import it using a private browser. You can follow these shortcuts to open private browser:

  • Google Chrome, press CTRL  + Shift + N
  • Mozilla Firefox: press CTRL  + Shift + P
  • Internet Explorer: press CTRL  + Shift + P
  • Safari: press Command + Shift + N

If it works, go back to the regular browser and clear the cache. Too much cache results to some browser error. Also, try to import it using another browser like Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Mozilla Firefox. 

 

You can also check this article with very detailed steps on how to import trips from Google.

 

Reply to this thread if you have other concerns.

I've tried three different browsers, in Private/Incognito mode. No use. This is more like backend error instead of browser/cache issue :-)

There's no ongoing investigation about importing trips from Google Maps, saadsiddique.

 

As a workaround, you'll want to manually add trips. You can follow these steps on how to add trip:

  1. Go to Miles on the left navigation menu.
  2. Click Add trip. If this is your first trip, QuickBooks will ask you to complete the fields in the Vehicle info.
  3. Enter the date of the trip and description. The description should include the business purpose and the starting and ending locations.
  4. Enter the mileage, then choose Save.

To see your travel details, go to Google Maps and log in to your Google account you used on your mobile device. Then, go to Menu and select Timeline.

 

Please let me know if you have other concerns.

This is what I am talking about: https://www.loom.com/share/0439e0b6f3214cbaaee9a0a1b9c56673

 

And there are over 150 of trips. Adding them manually is not an option.
