The current odometer reading in the vehicle. Once set, this value is updated based on reports from the vehicle.

As time goes by, this value may deviate from the actual odometer reading because distances must be estimated for some unit types.

Engine Hours:

The total hours that the engine is running (the ignition is on). Once set, this value is updated based on reports from the vehicle. Next to the value is an indication of the last time the engine hours were explicitly set. As time goes by, this value may deviate from the actual engine hours because the amount of time the ignition is on must be estimated for some unit types.
