If you’ve ever gazed out at a sea of parked cars and realized that you have
no idea where yours is, Car Locator is here to help. This GPS-based app for your
Android device remembers your car’s location and leads you right back to it. It
also keeps track of how long you’ve been parked, lets you know if you need to
feed the parking meter, and more.
Setting Car Locator to remember your car’s spot is easy. When you park your
car, just open the app (or use the handy widget straight from your home screen).
You’ll see your current location on Google Maps, along with a cool-looking radar
display that signifies your car with a red dot. Just double-tap the location of
your car on the map (or simply shake your phone) and Car Locator will remember
where it is.
When you want to find your car again, just open the app and follow the cues.
Choose between a map screen, which shows your progress on Google Maps as you get
closer to your car, or a radar screen, which puts your car’s location in a
simple visual graph to help you orient as you get closer. You can also opt for a
split-screen option, which shows both map and radar signals at once. It’s also
easy to link to Google Maps’ step-by-step directions, as well.
Along with the visual help, Car Locator features a “sonar” function that
emits a beeping sound: The closer you get to your car, the faster it beeps. This
can be very useful in a crowded parking lot (or if you want to pretend that
you’re piloting a submarine).
By touching the Details tab at the top of the screen, you’ll see (in big,
clear numbers) the amount of time your car has been parked and how many feet
away it is from you right now. There’s also a directional helper at the bottom
of the screen, which uses an arrow to illustrate what direction to walk in order
to get closer to your car.
The app’s timer and alarm are a nice touch. If you parked in a spot that has
a time limit, just set the timer and your phone will alert you when you need to
go feed the meter or find another spot.
Many other useful features round out this simple tool. If you park in the
same area frequently, you can save that location for future use. You can also
send your car’s location to another phone that has Car Locator installed on
it–this can be very helpful when meeting friends in an unfamiliar place, for
example, or if you need someone to pick your car up for you.
The home screen widget is a quick and useful way to save your location
without opening the app. Just one touch to the widget will set your location and
you’ll be ready to go.
