  • An odometer is an instrument used for measuring the distance traveled by a vehicle, The device may be electronic, mechanical or a combination of the two called as electromechanical. 
  • Modern cars include a trip meter, Unlike the odometer, a trip meter is reset at any point in a journey making it possible to record the distance traveled in any particular journey or part of a journey. It was traditionally a purely mechanical device but, in most modern vehicles, but nowadays electronic
  • The trip meter can be used to record the distance traveled on each tank of fuel, making it very easy to accurately monitor the energy efficiency rate of the vehicle, which is another common use is to perform resetting it to zero at each instruction in a sequence of driving directions to sure when one has arrived at the next turn
