    Hi,
    Perhaps this is already out there but I was thinking today after a shoping trip with my wife and kids that a car finder would be a good app to have. I have no real issue finding my car however in the past when at a sporting event have had to search for my car. I wonder if ther is a way to create an app to do this? Any Ideas of existing apps would be nice.

    I guess that would be okay but i doubt it would be able to track and pinpoint your exact location in a single parking lot.

    Here's how you do it with currently supplied apps. Open Google Maps, click on current location (since it'll size down to 3 meters, which is roughly 2 car lengths) and save as a favorite. DONE.

    My thought would be when you leave your car you simply press the icon and it adds it as a way point. When you come out of the event press it again and a map or arrow comes up and guides you back. I figure all you would need is about fifty feet from the target or car. I wish I could program it myself.

    Any programmers out there that would be interested in doing this? I bet a lot of people would want something like this simple easy to use interface.

    That would be a cool idea, it could be used for so many different things if it was made.
