Has saved me money and time I have apps that I'd use to mark parking times for me so I'd know when to return. This one does it so automatically I don't have to do anything, just undock, get out of the car and start walking. GPS has been incredibly helpful, especially in stadium environments, where markings are hard to come by. Think the photo/notes options are useful for areas where GPS is hard to pick up, but I've rarely used them.
How is this so bad? Normally accurate within to around a couple miles (no exaggeration). This app is only helpful if you can't remember what city you parked in.
"parks" car far away from where it is Testing the app with the Motorola Roadster 2 bluetooth speaker phone and Samsung Galaxy S3 (Samsung SCH-I535) phone. The app is supposed to automatically mark where the car is parked when the bluetooth connection is disconnected. It does automatically store a location. However, the car isn't where the app says it is. Yesterday it had the car about 1/2 mile from where it was parked - not even on the parking lot. Today it has it about a mile away. That's isn't very useful. I don't understand why it gets it wrong since the app correctly shows where I am when I start the app to find the car and am walking toward where it is really parked. I'd give it 5 stars if it showed where the car was really parked.
Does Not Work The app opens automatically long after parking and can never obtain a GPS location, in spite of GPS working fine in all other apps. I have yet to even see the map in this thing. This feature was one of the selling points for me buying my Roadster 2. I'm quite disappointed.
No way to turn it off when driving to known places If GPS is not on because you know where you are going and where you are parking, like driving home, there is no easy way to shut off app. So it vibrates the phone multiple multiple times causing an unwanted drain on the phone's battery. Please fix so from the warning icon it can be shut off till the next time the phone is connected to the Motorola device. Then I'd give it a 4 to 5 instead of a 2.
Needs Work It would be better if it would only save the location when undocking then waited for the user to reopen the app to start guiding them. The constant GPS pinging and auto starting when you're not looking for your car is extra annoying.
What's in this version:
1. UI optimization on notification and GPS/Compass tasks.
2. Bug fixes.
Moto Actions responds to simple gestures without you having to touch the phone.
