    Log format addition

    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.
    Thanks Brett

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

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    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:

    Log-2012 TIGUAN-WVGBV7AX1CW000438-64490km-40072mi.txt
