    i have a room mate that uses my car on occasion. i wonder if there is an app that would allow me to keep track of my vehicle when he is using it so that i know where it is at all times? i have a feeling hes lying to me on certain occasions about where he goes but i can never be sure.

    You'd have to leave your phone in the car, wouldn't you?

    Sorry, but if you don't trust him then why would you continue to let him use your car?

    I would check to see if your GPS has the option to turn on breadcrumbs. That will leave a trail on the screen of everywhere the car went.

    Tie him to a chair and crack his head, then tell him to fess up, at this point, you can trust him.

    Then I think you're SOL using your existing configuration.

    You would need to upgrade the GPS, spring for a stand alone tracker, or leave your phone in the car.

    Does he have a smartphone?

    You can always install an app on his to track him. Some of them are pretty sneaky.

    You can use "Droid Secure app" available in android market. I am sure you can detect the exact position where car is going. It is completely undetectable.
