    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,

    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.

    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?

    I liked this save option, so you don't have to keep GPS running. The problem I had with this app is my car was in the West and the compass was directing me East. I've only tried it once, I'll give it another try.

    Yes, even if you pull the battery. I had to last Friday and it knew where my car was after I powered up. Car Locator did as well.

    BTW, it's Carrr Matey. You need the extra "R" in the search. I have both and they both work fine (although you have to pay for Car Locator after 10 uses).
