Auto Finder Helps Track Down Your Parked Car

 |  |  |  |  |  |  November 29, 2010

Do you, or someone you know have a bad habit of losing their car? If you’ve always lived in a small town, you probably haven’t run into the problem of losing your car in a parking space very often. Granted, those Walmart parking lots can get a bit crowded during the holidays, but that’s nothing compared to what one can encounter in a large city. Sometimes you can’t even remember how many blocks away you parked the darn thing. If this is frequently the case for you, a special gadget might be required.


Sure, there are apps for your smartphone that can track down your car, but you generally have to remember to set the location before you leave the car. Unfortunately, that can be a pain. This $59 Auto Finder just needs to be installed in your car, and a special keychain added to your car keys. Hold down one button, and it will let you know if you’re pointing in the right direction of your vehicle. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

You know, after seeing that thing in action, I can only think of one thing. I want to get one, and hack it into A Ghostbusters P.K.E. meter. I would seriously walk around with one of those, waiting for the little arms on the side to go up all of the way, so I know where the “ghost” is. Who’s with me?
