How does the Find my car app work? It is simple. Once you’ve parked your car, open the app and spot the exact location and save the car position on the map. You can even take a picture; add a note (landmark or spots to remember). When you want to find your car again, open the app and locate your last car position on the map. It shows the distance to your car in real time as you walk down. It shows the direction from your spot to parked area.

Now clicking on the park store position will allow you to add a title for your parking location that is going to store the GPS co-ordinates of your car parking. Then when you need to find the car, open the app and use Find display position and select the parking title that you just saved.

It gives you 4 options to show the parking place on map, take/view picture, navigate or send the GPS location to someone else.  When you hit navigate, the app uses Google navigation to show the walking direction to the parking lot where your car is parked. Using the exact GPS co-ordinates you are taken to your car. Awesome isn’t?
