HOW STATISTICS WORK AND HOW THEY DISPLAY ON YOUR METER
-Fred Stock www.TaxiCabElectronics.com 1/12/2013

Meters generally keep track of money and things you need for accounting, trip records and so forth.
They keep totals which you can easily access, and in some of the newest meters, they actually keep
individual trip information for you. This is not the case with most meters, but the newest Centrodyne
meter does this. If your meter has a printer built-in or attached, you can print out your stats as well.
Totals can be recorded periodically, and compared in the same way one would compare odometer
readings, subtracting the older reading from the current total. When the meter was calibrated to a
"mile", totals will register in miles. If the meter was calibrated in kilometers, totals will be in km.
The following table lists individual meters and the order in which the stats are displayed;
