Contest: Leave a comment to this post for your chance to win one of ten VQ CarFinder Bundles!

A few weeks back we checked out VQ CarFinder, a great application that helps you remember where you left your car. I got my hands on the Bluetooth Car Charger to use with this app and I've had a great time playing around with it. The app automatically remembers where you left your car based on the connection with the Bluetooth charger (if you have a vehicle with Bluetooth you can use that as well).

The good folks of VQ are currently running a "Where The %@&# Did I Park??!!" contest where users can submit videos or stories of parking nightmares and be entered to win a BlackBerry smartphone and a CarFinder license. Head over to 4carfinder.com for more details or check out the submissions on their YouTube page. VQ has also given us 10 CarFinder bundles to give away. The bundle includes a full VQ CarFinder software license as well as a Bluetooth Car Charger (retail value of $64.98). To be entered to win, just leave a comment on this post. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please leave only one comment - multiple submissions won't count.

I have a hard time finding my zipper when i gotta go.....much less my ride after another BROWNS loss!!! help!

This would have been great in D.C. last week. I got lost after checking out "Obamas crib" and spent nearly an hour wandering around D.C. before finally finding my rental.

I wanted to leave a comment sooner but I have been out looking for my car, a simple solution I need to win a copy of this neat new idea, Can you help me find my car?

If this uses Bluetooth, then you have to be within Bluetooth operating range for it to work. Also the Bluetooth in y9our car has to be on. In my Toyota Camry, it shuts off after a minute or so. So, you are forced to get their receiver to get one that stays on. WIll this increase the range? Probably not significantly as it is more a function of the transmitter power thanm the receiver.

SO, If you can't find your car when you are standing within 30 feet of it, you probably should not be driving. The alarm function of my remote entry has a range of over 100 feet. Far more useful, Screaming car alarm under my control. Real easy to find (if I am withing 100 feet or so).

The GPS in my Storm will bring me back to the car over any distance.

Bottom line: Give it to someone else

Hey Good folks at CB. How was your weekend? I want to win this one----------->VQ carfinder, I am the guy that cant remember where i parked, that frustrates me- one problem solved if i win .. thanks!

AWESOME! Never not be able to find the car after a long day at the mall again?! Sick! Haha, I'm leaving this last minute but who cares?1

Was at a concert and came out with no idea where the car was. A small group of us, all in the same predicament, wited about 45 minutes until enough cars left the lot so we could find ours :)
