Maybe what you need is a geocaching app.

As in, I'm going to the mall of america/Disney World and need to make my way back to my car.... find my car app?

Find My Car... Currently Free
Uses GPS

Find my Car Smarter. ... Also Free
Uses GPS and Bluetooth Beacon.

Edit: I havent lost my car yet... Knock on Wood... So I havent had the need to use such app.

I just want to find my car after it's been parked. I have no idea what that site is talking about...

I'm looking for one that works with the Watch.

Maps is very cool. You get a Taptic alert and then a brief message as to where to turn, distance, etc.

I'd like a Find My Car app that does the same thing.

I'll check the links.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I've never lost my car either, but I've lost a borrowed car (lost meaning that I had to walk a GIGANTIC parking lot for over an hour to find it).

When you're in a strange place and park in the daytime, it seems so easy, but when You return at night - perhaps approaching from a different direction, nothing looks familiar.

So... have you tried these apps? How well does the second one work without a Bluetooth beacon?

Use iOS Maps app and drop a pin on your car, or do the same with Google maps.

Ok, for some reason, this is the one I'm gonna try. Review avg is very poor, but RECENT versions review very well.

Thanks, but more info from others would be just fine with me...

If all that you use it for is finding your car when parked outdoors, it's pretty flawless. And no ads is a big plus.
