Use Augmented Reality to Find Your Car

"There have been a lot of apps in the App Store for helping you find where you parked your car, but now there's one that shows you where it is with the awesomeness of augmented reality."

This is an interesting use of the Augmented Reality feature, but not sure how well it would work in a parking garage. Since you have to use the GPS, I'm guessing open lots work best. The results they achieved were close but not exact, but as long as it gets you in the general area I suppose that is good enough. I find taking a picture of the location if they use markers for the parking areas works pretty well, but if they don't this might come in handy for those that need the help. I have to be honest though, I haven't lost my car yet no matter the size of the parking lot.
