Accurate, Useful & Fun! _________ This app is as accurate as any are on my cheap-o ZTE Maven phone. The phone does not have the world's best GPS system, so it certainly would be unfair to rate the app based on missing the car's spot. (All map & other GPS dependent apps miss my location by many feet- or more. Also, the GPS triangulation may mess up.) When I have good, solid GPS signals, the app is spot-on accurate. ______ I like the choice of two quite different radar screens. There is one that looks like an old-timey military sonar. It has circles & pulsating blips. The easier one for me to use is the arrow which points to the car. ______ There are many customizations in the Settings menu: I like being able to leave a note for myself and take a photo. One can even set how accurate you want the app to be when pinpointing the car. A bigger "miss zone" makes it lock in the location faster. More accuracy takes a little bit longer to lock in to the car. And, if you are on line or Data, you can have a map to look at while walking to the car. I'm not done exploring the app's many features yet! ______________ *** Really Appreciated Features- A) The app is tiny at less than 9 MB. B) The app never, ever changes your Location Preferences. This can potentially save you much battery use. Conversely, you can set Location to other parameters to let the app work faster (set in phone's Location settings). Some, well many, Find Car and Map applications change your Location setting without telling you. And don't put it back when the app is closed. This one respects your choices. C) The app is fast! It is faster than any that I've tried. D) It will tell you if there is no GPS signal, rather than have you walk aimlessly about_______ One glitch that I've noticed, and it may be my phone's fault- is that,quite often, while walking to the car, the pointer will go ape-crazy and start spinning around. It sometimes even locks in the wrong direction for a second. It does recover. This is a very small, and sometimes entertaining, glitch. ______ My Recommendation is to try the app & see how you like it. And, if you like it, get the No-Ads version to remove the really, really tiny and unobtrusive ads at the bottom of the screen. Remember that if your accuracy isn't correct, it may be the GPS signal, not the app. The developer must have spent many, many hours crafting & perfecting this app- and making it fun to use!

Had been ideal for years but just let me down. Wouldn't go off the "start walking outdoors to activate the arrow or radar". But I walked a long long way. Couldn't see the data because this message was in the way. I wondered whether it was refusing to progress anywhere until it had inflicted an ad on me but it couldn't do that due to poor mobile signal? Whatever, it refused to give me any hint as to where my car was. VERY disappointed as I know from past experience it can't work well.

doesn't work well. Very difficult to determine where your car is. I would not recommend this app to anybody. I use an Android. It doesn't make much sense to me that you can't locate your car until after ⁰you start walking... Which direction is not clear. Nonetheless, after giving it several chances to work I have had more occasions of not being able to locate my car.
