iFind My Car
By Mobility-BR Consultoria LTDA - EPP
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Location Services must be enabled to use the app. Please go to Settings -> General -> Location Services (both the General and the specific for the iFind My Car app should be on).
After shopping, watching a nice game or attending classes suddenly you realize that you do not remember where you parked your car. The answer is iFind My Car app from Mobility.
After parking, just tap the Pin Car button to record your car location in the parking lot. As soon as you are done and want to find your car tap the button Find My Car and voilà! You will be directed to your car. The phone will vibrate and alert you when your car is in sight. The app is designed for open parking lots, not indoor garages.
The app uses the iPhone 3GS compass but also works on the 3G. In older models, without GPS, the accuracy is not sufficient. There is an accuracy indicator: green, yellow and red. If it is red you should not use the app. When you are outside, it takes one or two seconds to achieve the best possible accuracy. GPS accuracy varies with landscape characteristics, geographical location and weather conditions.
After pinning your car you can adjust its location by touching and dragging the red beetle. You might use this resource if the accuracy indicator is yellow and there is a visible difference between the blue pin current location indicator and your car real position as seen on the screen. On your way back to the car the accuracy should improve along the way. So you can start walking to your car even if the accuracy indicator is yellow. Enjoy.

Figured out "Africa" glitch....
When you open the app an find the satellite hovering over Africa or Europe, move the map with your thumb and locate the USA. You will magically find your correct location. At this point the buttons become un-shaded and useful. They need to fix this glitch.
Fix it please!!
I only gave it 5 stars because of the concept. It used to work awesome, now it doesn't find me at all. Please fix this so it can be 5 stars for real.
Best application to find the car. I have other apps. But this is the one that helps you find your car in a straight line. Very good. Unique!!!
