Default is there an app that will help me find my car at Bonnaroo?

Is there a GPS app that will let me set "points" and help me find my vehicle?

You can use BlackBerry maps to set "favorites" or book marks on a map.

Ditto. That and a good sobriety program will solve the issue

When you have the location set on your BB maps, press the menu key and select "Add to favorites."

If you get so trashed that you need a app to find your car you prolly shouldn't drive, that's my 2 pennys. Now if your talking about finding a tan chevy blazer in a walmart parking lot I understand that does get hard sometimes and see your point in needing that.

What's up with all the drunk talk?? I don't drink. I'm talking about finding my car in a field at night with very little light among 80,000 other vehicles.

No problem. You have to set the location of your car when you are leaving it and when you try to find it later the program points the direction to it.

You reported the post and I got your PM. It was a joke. Take a breath and have a laugh!
My point was for the "other" 150,000 partiers

Have fun.

Yes I did not mean any harm as it was a joke.

Ok. I got carfinder and it appears to be working. Thanks to everyone that helped. I also cleaned my trackball earlier with the help of the instructional post. This site is very useful.

Thanks again

Actually, this post gave me the idea to do exactly what is suggested: Set the place I left my car as favorite on my GPS. I never seem to remember where I left it anymore....especially at Walmart or the Mall.
