A new Kickstarter project from FMC Smart aims to make sure your iPhone never lets you forget where you've parked again!
After a long day at work or hanging out with my friends or even after going to the shopping mall, there's always a time where I completely forget where I parked my car. Right now, there are apps on the iPhone that will save the location of my car, but I have to manually launch the app to drop a pin each and every time I have parked my car. Stopping to launch an app when I'm running into work or trying to catch a plane is a complete waste of time and totally annoying. So I developed an app that allows the iPhone 4S to remember the last place I parked and the only time I have to launch the app is after I've lost my car, not before.
The way it works is simple an straightforward, using the new Bluetooth Smart technology nestled inside the iPhone 4S it helps find where you've parked your car without having to first tell the app that you've parked in that location.
The receiver sits in your vehicle. All you have to do is launch the Find My Car Smart app and it will automagically locate your car by communicating with the receiver using the BT Smart technology. Unfortunately this only works with the iPhone 4S due to the Bluetooth Smart requirement, but it can be a total lifesaver in those panic moments where you've completely spaced out where you were parked.
The Kickstarter project has a goal of $10,000 in order to being mass production, but they're already up to around $2,500 in funding with 28 days remaining. You can donate just $25 to receive the receiver and a free copy of the app from the App Store, and for an additional $30 you'll get a car charger to ensure the Bluetooth Smart receiver never dies on you. The receive should begin shipping at the end of January.
