There are lots of apps out there that help you keep track of where you left your car, but Carrr Matey's pirate-themed take on parking won the hearts of Car Talk visitors. Like other parking spot apps, Carrr Matey works by asking you to mark your location on a map when you park (although, in this case, it's a pirate treasure map). The app uses your phone's built in GPS to guide you back to your "ship" when you're ready. Other handy features include the parking timer to keep Lovely Rita at bay, a “recent locations” log, and a compass view to guide you through off road parking.
Please note: plank and buxom wenches are not included.
For the less nautically inclined, Take Me To My Car for iPhone is a good option.
