Some popular applications to find misplaced vehicles include Find My Car Smarter, MyCar Locator Free and Car Locator. The Find My Car Smarter application is available on iOS devices. MyCar Locator Free supports Android devices, while Car Locator is for Windows devices.
All three applications use global positioning systems to find where the car has been parked. For best results, these applications should be used outdoors to avoid losing the GPS signal. Some interesting features available on these applications include the ability to zoom in to the exact location of the car, determining how long the car has been parked and the availability of walking directions to the location of the car.
