Are you sure the odometer is counting while towing?

Have not used or considered that system but to expand on what Old Scout said.

Two problems with the portable systems (NOT the one you are considring) which are thus advantages of the "Installed" systems

The portables say: No installation required
But the fact you need to install them EVERY time you tow.

Issue one: Every install is a chance to screw something up (done it often enough myself with other things)

Issue two: "Oh we are only going a few miles, I'll forget it for this short.... OH SH##!!!!!!!!! crash. I wish I'd put it in.

Thus I support the install it once and done systems.

Issue 3 with the portable,, Legs,, sometimes they grow legs.
Home is where I park it!

We have towed a 2006 Honda CRV for 55,000 miles and it has never registered towing miles. That said, I don't know if the 2014 is the same.
