Is it possible to add the year and model to the scan logs. I've been looking at buying another car and have been scanning a number of vehicles and it would be nice to have a more detailed log and a better way to tell which is which. Even have the year and model in the title of the log. So when I open the logs folder I can tell instantly which log was for which vehicle. Just a suggestion.

Right, the VIN of the car is part of log file names by default.

Also, if you want searchable notes add the description in the License Plate entry before saving. After doing so you would have the VIN and a file name such as:
