my wife was playing with are kids outside and put the phone on the back of the car ( I know not a good idea ) I got in the car drove off and now we cant find her car anywhere I used google maps and it shows the area it is in which I expected it to be but still cannot find it anybody have any ideas on how to get a better location on this without permissions being accepted on the phone the battery is low so I don't have much of a chance but just figured to ask for help ( the phone is not rooted or anything )

jump on your computer and go to google's android device manager and log in with your google account info. If your phone is still alive, it will give you a location on a map, and an option to ring it if you're close by.
