Below is a basic outline of how the Find My Car App works based on an iPhone device.
Then open the Find My Car App.
Once you have safely parked your car use the Set Location Marker button to set the location of where you have left your car.
A pin will appear on the map which marks the spot where you have parked your car.
Once you start moving you will find the Current Location Button handy. The Current Location Button will place your current location in the middle of the map relative to the Location Marker that you have set.
You can switch between a normal Map and a Hybrid Map depending on what you prefer. A Hybrid Map is like a normal Map overlaid on top of satellite images.
The Set Timer button allows you to turn on a count down timer. This is useful if you have parked somewhere that is metered and you need to know when the meter is going to run out.
To start the count down timer simply select the amount of time and then click on the Set Timer button.
Click on the Map Icon to start tracking.
The Find My Car App uses the mapping program that is built into your iPhone, iPad or Android device. Keep in mind that in this example we are using an iPhone so what appears on your phone may be slightly different. Please check the user manual for your phone to learn more about the mapping program on your phone. Click on the Start button to start tracking.
Use the Arrow Button to switch between different tracking modes.
Use the 3D button to view the map in 3D mode.
To stop tracking click on the End option.
The mapping program will return to normal mode with tracking turned off.
The Camera allows you to take a photo of your car and place it next to the Marker Location that you have set. This may be useful in case you want to know where your car is parked in relation to other land marks or simply if you want to have a record of the condition of your car when you parked it.
You can choose to either Take a Photo or Choose from Library. In this case I’m going to select Choose from Library and make use of an image that I have taken earlier.
Select a photo from your Photo Library.
The selected image will appear next to the Location Marker that you have set.
The Email Button allows you to Email or SMS the Marker Location to someone. This may be useful if for instance you can not pick up your car and need someone else to pick it up for you.
Share by Email or Share by SMS.
Click on the Trash Can Icon to reset the Location Marker and start over.
Another useful App that you can use with the Find My Car App is the Personal Notes App. You can use the Personal Notes App to write notes, lists and reminders for instance shopping lists, to do lists or simply to make detailed notes about where you parked. An example of this might be in a multi floor parking lot. You can use the Personal Notes App to write down the level and section number of where you parked. You can access the Personal Notes App from within the Auto Advisor Mobile App.
Click on the Create A New Personal Note icon.
Click on the Tick Icon to save your Personal Note.
Click on the Back Button to return to the main menu of the Auto Advisor Mobile App.
