If you use your phone after a Trip ends, you will not incur a Distraction event. Remember, a Trip “end” is considered when 3 minutes elapse with no movement (i.e., speed <3m/sec or 6.7 mph), OR a change is detected in “mode” from driving. Your Mentor app will still be running during this first 3 minutes and you may think it is recording the event—but the software is designed to remove that event once the 3 minutes has been reached; if it detects you are walking it will end the trip sooner.
