Best for Both Connected & Unconnected Use There are a number of apps that do a good job of finding a marked location when the phone has service, but fall down when only GPS signals can be received. This app works very well when it can access Google maps and directions via a data service, but in addition it provides excellent direction if it can't. Unlike with some apps, the pointer is responsive to your direction changes and doesn't jump around. If you'll ever need to navigate where you don't have service this is the app is a very good choice. If the UI was better designed to allow easier use of multiple stored locations I'd give it 5 stars.
Car locator I have found that this app is indispensable at theme park parking lots (like Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World ). Simply start the app, it locates where you are and guides you back to that same location later. I have a gray van. Do you know how many families come to Disney in gray vans??? I have walked for over an hour looking. After a day in the parks, that's not fun. This app is terrific.
Doesn't work most of the time. It has the best features list of all similar apps I've found. Automatic location saving after Bluetooth disconnect was important to me (available with plugin). Initial testing with trial version was good, so I purchased the licensed version. Unfortunately, I didn't test long enough. At least 95% of the time I get an error stating that location could not be saved. This problem has persisted across two different model phones, running KitKat 4.4 and Lollipop 5.1, respectively. In contrast, Goggle location history has no such problem. I attempted to contact the developer for support, but got no response. The error messages are annoying, so I have uninstalled the app.
Never has worked I bought this app after a friend's experience losing her car in a parking garage. Got great reviews and sounded like a good choice. But each time I've tried to use it the "radar" screen just keeps turning with no directions forthcoming. Definitely doesn't work in concrete structures. Very disappointed.
Great! I love this app! Works well if you press the button manually. But, I bought this app for the auto feature with Bluetooth disconnect (separate add-on)... Only gets 30% of the locations. Phone GPS is on all the time, works quickly with all other apps but this one. If it does actually get my position it's usually at the front door of the store I'm going into rather than the parking spot when it was disconnected from Bluetooth.
Getting a fix takes too long and usually times out. Using the Bluetooth plugin. Other apps get the location pretty fast, but with this, getting a location is the exception rather than the rule, unless I was already using navigation.
