How many times have you forgotten where you had parked?

With this app you will not forget where you parked your car, motorbike, bike or horse...

With a simple and intuitive interface you can save the position where he parked and then get directions from wherever you are.

The application can also save the position of the vehicle automatically when you disconnect the headset, by example.

HOW IT WORKS

A button will appear in the bottom-right of the screen when the location will be fixed with the defined accuracy.

Press the button to save your car location.

When you can re-enter the app it will display the route to your vehicle and, of course, you can save the car location again.

Easier impossible!

Only to let us know 2 rellevant dates for this app:

* May 3: I have pulled the app from the Play Store. Active users can use the app but no new installs are allowed.

* June 11: Google Maps API becomes a payment API and developers needs to create a billing account to continue using it. I do not agree with that, so I do not intend to create the billing account. I assume that the app will stop working sooner than later from that date.

Just for your information, I paste a rellevant part of the email that I have received on May 3 from Google...

Hi,

Today we are announcing important changes, including our new name - Google Maps Platform, a simplified product structure, pay as you go pricing for all, and more. Please take a few minutes to review the announcement to familiarize yourself with the upcoming changes.

We would like to highlight a few updates that may impact your implementation. Beginning June 11th, we are launching our new pricing plan and providing all users access to support. We’ll continue to offer a free tier — all developers will receive $200 of free monthly usage of our core products.

In addition, this change will require you to enable billing and associate it with all of your Google Maps Platform projects. Creating a billing account helps us better understand your usage so we can continue developing helpful products. It also allows you to scale easily with less downtime and fewer performance issues if your product grows beyond the $200 of free monthly usage. For additional visibility and control you can set daily quotas or billing alerts.
