Car Locator – Free Amazon Appstore App of the Day 7/31/11

Car Locator
A radar-style screen and Google map make locating your car easy. 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.
Park, Save, and Go.
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.
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).
