Where did we park the car?

Title Insurance ePro, MBA

How many times have you parked your car in a large parking lot like the mall or a theme park and forgot or were not sure where you parked your car.  Did you remember where you parked in that long term parking lot at the airport?

Do you have a cell phone that can take a picture -- do you know how to use it to take a picture?

Snap a picture of the car in the parking lot with some landmarks or signs that you will recognize.  You can always refer to the photo if your mind was on something else when you were parking.

You even have a photo of where the car is parked if you have to tell someone else where it is parked to go get it.  Simply send the photo via text or email to them.

Good advice, not that I ever lose my car or even my keys or even lose my keys in the car when its locked ;-)

You can take a photo of the aisle, row or section sign near where you parked.

Hi Scott- If my mom wasn't losing the keys, she lost the whole car! Even now, I always park in by the same door at each store I frequent. No matter where I go or how busy with clients I am - I know about where the car is! --Sara in San Antonio

I must say, I was guilty of that last night at an Olive Garden restaurant parking lot (it was packed).  Simple solution, click the lock/unlock feature on the remote and your car will light up and honk at you!

the remote is a good one too!  I have used that but in the big parking lots - I don't know where to start sometimes and I am too far away for that to work -- but I have to admit -- I have use the remote a couple of times

More opinions than you want to hear about.

Great idea.  Now, if I could just remember where I left the cell phone....

Love it! I'm pregnant right now and feel like I'm losing brain cells by the day.  I can never seem to remember where I park my car even though I try really hard to remember the row number.

Many times the parking spaces are marked with numbers...just take a photo. Voila...such high tech uses for our toys.

Luckily I have never lost my car:) I think snapping a picture is a great plan that do not have a good sense of direction!
