BlackBerry NFC and City Parking Meters Makes Life Easier and Cities Better

VQ CarFinder giving away 10 CarFinder Bundles

77 Comments

VQ CarFinder are giving away 10 VQ CarFiner Bundles through BlackBerry Cool and all you have to do is comment to win.

The application helps you remember where you parked your car by integrating a GPS-enabled BlackBerry with the car’s Bluetooth. As you drive, the application recognizes that the Bluetooth signal is on and tracks your GPS location. When you park you car and turn off the engine, the Bluetooth signal is cut, signaling to the application to mark your GPS location and therefore where you parked. If your car doesn’t have Bluetooth, you can buy a Bluetooth car charger from within the app for $19.99.

VQ Carfinder is available on a free trial and the full license is available for $9.99.

To win 1 of 10 bundles through BlackBerry Cool, tell us; “have you ever forgotten where you parked?”

On top of the BlackBerry Cool giveaway, VQ CarFinder is also running their “Lost My Car” contest where users can win 1 of 3 BlackBerry devices. Honourable mentions win $25 BBerry Accessory Store e-Gift Cards.
