    Car Finder

    I am totally lost about this option of the navigation system that came with my Droid. Supposedly you can tag your car on the map when you park, and then when returning to your car, you are able to find where you parked it. I am having difficult time configuring this. Can someone walk me through this?

    Thank you,

    MICP 1480

    I tried the Car Finder app but it drained my battery VERY quickly. I uninstalled it.

    theres also one called "Carr Matey"

    it will let you pin where your car is parked and then will direct you to it.

    the only thing i could go without the pirate theme it has but it seems to work quite well. did not notice and battery drain out of the ordinary.

    Car Locator works. When you're at your car just hit the menu button & select "save location". The next time you open the program it will instantly start directing you back to that location. After the GPS locates you of course.

    Oh Man! That's an awesome name. I'm adding that to my list of "must haves".

    With any of these applications, can you "mark" the car in the system then just kill the app and turn GPS off? When it is time to find your car again turn back on GPS and the app?
