Valet, car locator app for Android, has expanded beyond a handy reminder of where you parked your car. Valet was quick to jump on Google's recent release of location APIs and expand its functionality.

With the locations APIs now integrated, the entire process becomes automated which eliminates the possibility of forgetting to set your app.
