VQ CarFinder is an app that automatically remembers where you parked your car and helps you find it.

All you have to do is find a parking spot and VQ CarFinder will automatically register where you parked your car, and then when you want to find it again, simply click the VQ CarFinder icon on your BlackBerry, and BlackBerry Mpas will guide you back to the parking spot. The map comes with directional arroves that are continuously updated as you walk to the car.

The app works with a combination of software and in-vehicle Bluetooth to determine when and where the car is parked. When the user starts their car, VQ CarFinder notes the existence of the Bluetooth signal and automatically launches the GPS; when the user turns off their car, VQ CarFinder notes the loss of the Bluetooth signal and stores the last GPS waypoint as the location of the parked car.

VQ CarFinder is available on a free trial that comes with all the features of the full version. After the trial period users can purchase a VQ CarFinder license for the special introductory price of just $9.99 (regular price is $24.99).

    You can do the same thing by simply taking a geotagged picture of your car when you get out of it…

    Yeah it’s hard to justify a price like that when it’s so easy to find your car without it. Geotagged pic, or:

    Step 1: Once parked, open BB/Google maps and make your parking spot a favourite.
    Step 2: Enjoy your day.
    Step 3: “Where’s my car dude?” Open BB/Google maps, look up your favourite.
    Step 4: When you get to your car, simply delete the favourite.

    I wonder how well it works in a parking garage? Meaning, will it be able to direct me to the 6th floor vs just directing me to the parking garage?
