» GParkS Description
The other day I was at a football game where I had to park on a golf course far from the stadium and ended up wandering around for 20 minutes trying to locate the car afterward.

I knew that the iPhone had an app called "Dude, Where's My Car?" which let someone use GPS to tag a specific location and then later use Google Maps to guide them back to the GPS mark, but when I did some searching I couldn't find a WinMo version. So I made one.

This version isn't as sexy as the iPhone app, but it's free, and you can store up to 3 different locations and even name them if you'd like. When you want to locate one, you just click the respective Find button and you will be provided a compass direction (N, NW, S, SW, E, SE, W, NE) and approximate distance to your destination which will change as you continue to move.

I did some testing and got rid of whatever bugs I could find and everything seems to work. Since I find it useful to have, I wanted to pass it on to the community in case they might be interested as well.

It also won't launch on my Mogul WM61. Has anyone with WM61 got it to work? Has anyone with an HTC Qualcomm chip set combination got this to work?

I use and enjoy this program. The only disadvantage to it is that it indicates N,S,E, or W but you have to know which way those compass points are. It would be better if it also had an arrow that pointed whenever you started moving. But beyond that, it works like a charm and always gets me to within 15 ft of my car. I use it on an XV 6800 with internal gps unlocked.

Doesn't even start on my Samsung Omnia. "A problem has occured..." Do people ever test their applications before posting?
