The method involves logging information which is obtained from a GPS device of the vehicle. Such information includes route based data of the vehicle, such as route followed by the vehicle, speed of the vehicle, and date and time when the data is recorded. The data may be recorded for a predetermined duration of the journey followed by the vehicle. For example, the data may be recorded for last five to ten minutes duration of the journey followed by the vehicle. Similarly, the data may be recorded at multiple instances of the journey at different intervals of time.

Upon recording, the data may be stored as log files within the GPS device, such as in a flash area on the GPS device. The number of log files which may be stored in the GPS device is based on available memory capacity of the GPS device. In case, the memory of the GPS device is full, option for deleting old log files may be provided on the GPS device.

The log files are stored on the GPS device such that it may be retrieved as a secured record whenever required.
