• iOS 8 compatability
Have you ever wondered where you parked your car, moped, bicycle or berthed your 70m runabout? Ever wandered around the Sydney Opera House car park, or Chicago's Marina City Towers car park, or in an unfamiliar suburb, or landed at the airport after an 18-hour flight and cannot remember where you left your chariot two weeks earlier? Do you need to remember where your hotel is before you wander the nearby streets?
Well, this app's for you. It records the date and time, the longitude and latitude and address of where you left your car or where you are, as well as allowing you set the level and parking bay numbers.
When it's time to find your transport or return to your hotel, open the app and you will see on a map both where you are and where you left your vehicle. The route will also be shown if you've chosen Google Maps, or you are running iOS7+ and you've chosen Apple Maps.
Tap the Map or Google Maps button to start a Maps app to show the route between your current location and the previously saved location. Choose whether to use Apple Maps or Google Maps, if installed, in the Settings app.
Alternatively, if you're thinking of taking a taxi you can copy and paste the car's location into Taxi Fare (available in iTunes App Store) and it will give you directions, tell you how far it is and, if in Australia, give an approximate cost for the taxi fare.
Next time you need this app, tap the Reset button, wait for your current address to be displayed if you need it, set the levels if appropriate and tap Save. That's it.
If the device does not have access to the network in order to determine the address of the current location, but it does show the blue dot indicating the current location using the device's GPS capabilities, then the location can be saved and the app will retrieve the actual address next time it is in the foreground and network access is available.
This Universal app is designed to run on iPhone and iPod Touch and also to take advantage of the iPad's screen size.
The device's capabilities are used to determine the current location.
