A great app - saves me from my nightmare situation of not being able to find my car easily in downtown Manhattan. Has your car been towed, stolen, or have you forgotten where it is in an unfamiliar town? Never wonder again with this very useful app.

What a great little app! I just installed & thought i would try it out. I set where i 'parked', i 'lost' my car, clicked navigate, start navigation, & bingo! The app took me to the location down to inches of where i 'parked'! The mind boggles at items you're at risk of losing you could retrieve if you got into the habit of setting it's location on this app. Eg: your phone when you go visiting, your wallet when you go to the pub, your kids when you go to the park! ;) Easy to use & it works. Great job guys!
Good but not great! Very simple and works, however it would be better if you could share the location. That way if you get separated from your bodies they can find the car too.
Find my car locator
Have used several months and it never failed. When I go to Costco or the mall, I go in one entrance and out another - some times getting turned around. This puts me back in the right direction. Fantastic.

Kiss app. Would I like a visual bread Crumb on screen. Also, hard to use if you do not remember which level you parked on. As I can get lost in a phone booth, a fix for this would be GREAT!
Never lose your car
Works great. If you don't have both wifi and GPS on, it will complain and ask to turn them on, but just hit the cancel, and it still works. It may take up to 30 seconds to get a lock, but I think that's as good as it gets. Does not work in multi level indoor parking garages, but you can mark your parking spot at the garage entrance, and take notes where your car is.

Well! It doesn't suck. Saves me a butt load of pain cause of my disability & I don't have to roam the giant parking lots looking for my car in a sea of vehicles. Pretty accurate as well
Helpful but sort of incomplete
Great app for finding the exact location of your car. Few downsides: when you hit "find me" you can't go back to the car's location maybe have a "find my car" button to take the screen back to where the vehicle is. Also, it would be amazing if the app could detect when you're driving that way it automatically updates your current parking spot, much like Google Now's feature.
So simple to use.
I'm old and totally unskilled in technology. Easy to use. But it works great. Use it when I'm in the woods. This map comes up of my forrested area. It's perfect. Shows my car. Shows me. Bang. Done. Under canopy of trees. Can't see stars, find your way out and to your car. My only wish is to mark several places I always go in as waypoints. That way I don't have to remember to do this before I leave each time. It works great for me. And yes I've have used it to find my car in parking lots. Works there also.
I have a real problem finding my car when I'm in a new area or a huge parking lot. This was simple to use and very helpful. I went to the doctor, my mind was in a hundred different places and I located my car immediately! The more option helps, you can note row, aisle, etc. I'm def going to recommend to friends and family!
One of the best
I downloaded this app as I was goinh on vacation left my car in parking lot, I thought I wrote down parking location after I located it with this app. 4 days later I couldn't find written info but I used this app and was able to find my car without any hesitation. I just love this app.
A must have!
I can't believe how useful this little app is. Since I travel for work so often and use rental cars I often forget what my car looks like, let alone where it's parked. This app gets me close to the car and then I use my key fob to sound the horn. It works like a charm every time.
Love the manual mode!
The pointer took some getting used to, but it does help when your internal compass gets turned around. With most GPS apps, they're useless in a parking garage or in a city with tall buildings. This app though give you the ability to pinpoint your location and add notes to help you locate your car later! Awesome!

Used it several times in large parking lots. Mark your spot and forget it. When you are ready to return just open the app and follow the arrow. Very accurate and it tells how far away your car (or whatever you marked) is. Very useful
This app rocks! I downloaded it when I was about to park in Cincinnati. We walked around for about four hours, got somewhat lost and this app brought us right back to the car. We just followed the arrow. Simple as pie. I love it!
I am retired have lots of girls shopping days sometimes long and Then oops where's my car I forgot Ha Ha Never Again This little App is a Must I use it as well as all of my friends 5 Stars & Thanks 😄👍
Best App ever
Flew out to Vegas for an event at the speed way, 3 days of all night partying. Couldn't remember where I parked since every morning I walked out a different exit, opened the app it walked me back to my car every morning.

I tried a bunch of car locator apps and this is the best. The coordinates are a bit off, but what I love about it is that it has a big arrow that shows you which direction to walk in. Great for directionally challenged people like me!
I was a bit concerned when I parked my car in BFE Parking at the Raleigh concert, knowing that it would be dark when I had to find it again. Then I remembered I'd down loaded this app and never used it. Worked great! I found my car with no trouble at all nearly a quarter mile away, around many a bend! Exactly what it was supposed to do with nearly no confusion. Highly recommended! App comes with a compass like Jack Sparrow's, that always points to your car and a GPS map that Jack would have orgasmed over!
Lost in Reykjavik. Set the location of my car in downtown Reykjavik then turned off the phone. I thought I had a good idea of where we had parked but not even close. After turning the phone back on and selecting navigate we were returned to our car in 7 minutes. No sleeping on a doorstep in an unfamiliar country.
Best one so far
Works amazing when it works... lol alot of times I've noticed it will say can't get a location. I'm in Maryland and using Samsung galaxy. I feel it shouldn't have issues. Gotta move around and mess with GPS settings to get it to park me but the other app I tried was terrible wasn't even close to locating my car. This app is really good almost spot on. Guaranteed to get you atleast within 3 car lengths away. :)
Great and extremely useful app
Easy to use and very accurate. A real lifesaver in those panicky moments when you completely blank out on where you parked. Map and satellite modes make it simple to find your car or a location you want to revisit.
I've used this parking app a long time and many times and never failed. If my phone has signal, (RAZR m), this app will be within feet of my vehicle! Now if Verizon could get me a signal in the mountains! By the way folks, those of you that rate this app low saying the GPS won't turn on... That's prob'ly your phone not the app! Check your GPS with something else. I did & it was the phones signal too week. The app is great!
Works well that I've seen
I haven't really had a chance to put it to the test but I tested it by parking in the far reaches of a big parking lot where it wouldn't be easily seen from the door and it took me within ten feet of the vehicle. I tried to pay the buck twenty nine to get rid of the ads but play store crashed, other than the adds this is great and it's easy to use too.
I've used this and for the most part it is very accurate. I wanted to try an App called Car Locator (Edward Kim). I emailed the developer with some questions (3 times) - no response. I can see why - it just revolves and revolves and NEVER finds my location. I guess you don't always get what you paid for, since Kim wants $3.99, which isn't much, but it DOESN'T WORK.
Great and useful app
It has been a big help a number of times. Like when I went to a Wis Badger game with 80,000 other people and parked pretty far away in an unfamiliar city. One miss. It is always telling GPS is not high accuracy. One future improvement. Option to retrace route back to car.
It definitely helps you finding your car (or anything else) if you remember marking the location. Maybe an automatic marking system would be beneficial. After all, the GPS can detect your speed and knows exactly when you drive or walk. This is how pokemon go detects cheaters as well :)
