User reviews of Car Locator
I've used this on several occasions and it works great...love the different features...highly recommend.

Car Locator by Edward Kim, is actually a very helpful android app, esp. for those, who live in overcrowded cities. The app makes use of google maps and your phones GPS to mark the location of your car. Several options to locate your car, precise distance to it indicated dynamically, possibility to place your car into embedded map to know exact location, even sonar sound to beep faster as you approach your vehicle alongside other features like tracking time your car has been parked, makes it definitely worth buying. The price is $3.99, so it’s up for you to decide whether you need it or not, but there’s a trial version which may help you decide. https://market.android.com/details?id=com.edwardkim.android.carlocatorfull . Pros: app that really helps you out. Cons: useful only under certain circumstances, relatively high price.

Great! I love this app! Works well if you press the button manually. But, I bought this app for the auto feature with Bluetooth disconnect (separate add-on)... Only gets 30% of the locations. Phone GPS is on all the time, works quickly with all other apps but this one. If it does actually get my position it's usually at the front door of the store I'm going into rather than the parking spot when it was disconnected from Bluetooth.

Good Don't understand all the features. Seems overly technical in a way but I get it enough for it to be helpful. For parking in NYC, this is indispensable. How abt a feature that tells you when you need to move the car?

Works Great! This app is quick and easy to. The controls make sense. It works when only GPS is available. With only GPS available, there is no map but a big arrow points in the direction you should go.
