If you’re constantly forgetting where you’ve parked your car, TrakCar can be an incredibly useful app. It automatically detects your parking location whenever you park you car, helping you trace your steps if you can’t find it. You also have the option to enter the location manually. The app runs in the background, and will continue to work even when it’s minimised, provided Background App Refresh is enabled in settings.
