@arthurmaki: ...my wife could not find the parked car at the mall a few times and this would definitely help her not get into embarrassing situations...

Does your wife have a smartphone like an iPhone or an Android phone? If so, you can download a really cheap app that will allow her to remember her location when she parks the car and then locate it later.

I've been using "Carrr Matey" -- a pirate-themed app along the same lines. You "drop anchor" when you park, and follow the map back to your "vessel."

I don't think I'll need this app most of the time -- but at Christmas the local shopping mall is jam-packed with cars, and past experience has shown me that this would be useful then. And I can also see it being useful when I'm traveling and park a hire car in an unfamiliar city... Actually, I can't wait to try it in earnest...
