    I'd like to be able to have a comprehensive list of all my trips with details of locations, dates, etc. Tried visibletesla so far with no luck (it's not showing the trips I took already even though settings set to "all").

    Is there an app out there that is reliable? I know there are OBD-II dongles that you can use in most cars that are made for trip logging. Wonder if anyone has any experience with something like this with their Tesla?

    Unfortunately I've had no luck signing up to Teslafi.com I've reset my password a few times, tried registering again, and it still tells me I have an invalid password.

    the writer/owner of that app is a regular here, do a search on the forums and post in his thread, he's very receptive and will assist you.

    If you're looking for something to show trips you already took, I think you may be out of luck.

    All of the Tesla options I know of work by polling the car/MyTesla periodically and assembling the results, so they'd only work for future trips.

    TeslaFi keeps a history of your trips assuming you have it running.

    Trips you make after you sign up and log in the first time, right?

    The OP sounded like he wanted history from before they signed up for the service...

    Right and I don't know of anything that can retroactively go back and recreate trips.

    Me either. Which is exactly the point I was trying to make in the post you quoted. ;)

    I agree with both of you:) Believe it or not the Tesla rep that walked me through the car when I picked it up at Fremont told me I could access 6 months of my driving records on my Tesla account page.
    Wonder if one of the OBD-II dongles that tie into trip logging software would work with a Tesla? Has anyone tried it? Teslafi and apps like that wouldn't work if they need to be running during my trip, as my trips sometimes involved me taking my laptop with me.

    Could they have said that they keep records (logs) of your cars activity for 6 months and have access to it but not meaning you did.
    Don't understand you last comment. Apps like TeslaFi are logging all the time and has nothing to do with you taking and using your laptop.

    Teslafi needs to by running on my computer for it to log the information? Or just the fact that I've signed up is enough for it to constantly monitor my car?
    They specifically said 6 months driving history accessible by me. Said that I should be able to have access to it for that period of time. There were several questions I had that she wasn't able to answer, so I am just assuming that she wasn't too knowledgeable.

    Have a look at TeslaLog.com .It keeps your car awake but logs all trips and charging but only starts recording once you provide your mytesla credentials.

    Yep, it just runs in the cloud. You don't have to do anything. At some point you may notice some "phantom" battery loss because it polls your car frequently keeping it awake but there are settings you can play with to adjust that.
