Ratings and Reviews
This app does have its some issues.
I sent a email to support in October of 2014 and got a response that advised me that if more people have the problem then it will be updated. I even sent a few suggestion on how to fix the issue.
This app works fine if your cigarette port turns off when the car is turn off. So if you don't have any ports that turn off with the car then this item will not work, since the hardware component in the car needs to have the car off to work.
Also if you have remote start that make the ports have power, then this app won't work for you either.
All my ports are on so I had to convert one to make it turn off but I still have the issue of it working with remote start. If I do remote start the car then the red dot on the app that indicates where my car is goes away. The only workaround I have tried is to sync to Dropbox but then there is the issue of added clicking and there is no direction just "North is Up".
Works well if...
You only have one parking spot you are wanting to mark. Recently left my vehicle in the airport parking lot, marking the spot so I could find it upon my return 10 days later. then used the app to mark my rental car parking spot...app overwrote my personal vehicle's spot so I had to rely on the tried and true key fob alarm button. Very disappointed. Will be looking at different apps after that experience.
Downloaded this when I got to the stadium, set my location and went inside. When we left, took us RIGHT to our car. Not close, but exactly the correct row and spot. As we left, we saw dozens of people roaming the parking lot, all hitting the button on their remote, looking for their cars (half drunk, I'm sure). Horns beating all around. They should have downloaded this app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
