Zus Smart USB Car Charger and Car Finder





More than once I've forgotten to memorize a color and number representing the parking lot section where I've left my car. And seeing families wandering around large parking lots, sending the kids up and down aisles looking for their cars, I know I'm not alone. The Zus Smart Car Finder and USB Car Charger uses an app to mostly solve the problem of lost cars.

The Zus plugs into a car's 12-volt power point, formerly known as the cigarette lighter, and, when the car parks, automatically saves its location to a smartphone app.

Wayne Cunningham/Roadshow In black plastic with a flanged head sporting two USB ports, the Zus has an attractive design. It measures 3.25 inches long, and an inch at its widest point. The USB ports sit on slightly angled surfaces for better access. ZUS also integrates white LED lights to let you know when it's on, and make it easier to find and plug in USB cables at night.

Zus' associated app gets right down to business with its interface, showing an indicator with the direction and distance of your car, along with the time you parked. Slide the screen up and sk렌트카 you get a map view of your location and that of your car, making it easy to navigate through city blocks.
