What this tasker does is when you get out of your car Tasker can timestamps what time you leave and also your location; when you want to find the car you push a button and the nav opens taking you back to your car.
The only thing is you need a bluetooth or hands free connection

I AM CURRENTLY WORKING ON THIS TO SET IT SO THAT FOR THE FIRST 15 MIN AFTER A TRIGGER IT WONT RE-ACTIVATE (This to avoid lots of little stops and wasting battery)
AFTER 15-30 MIN IT WILL POPUP AND ASK YOU IF YOU WANT TO SAVE YOUR LOCATION
AFTER 30 MIN IT RESETS TO RUN FULLY
Looked so far at using a variable %STATE where it toggles between 0, 1, 2
0 = full run 1=0-15min and 2=15-30 min
this is to avoid it running the whole time you are out and it only triggers on bluetooth disconnect checking what states its in
Not happy with the results so far so I am now looking at using variables
%CURRENTTIME (current time in seconds)
%TIME15 (current time plus 15 min in seconds)
%TIME30 (current time plus 30 in seconds)
when it triggers it checks %CURRENTTIME against %TIME15 and %TIME30 to see what the status is.
if its between the stamp %CURRENTTIME and %TIME15 it will just goto the end of the routine
This is as far as I have got as it needs some whizzy things like goto's to make sure it runs past the original time stamping
ANYONE FEELS LIKE HELPING FEEL FREE :) to add notes to this
I do feel im making it over complicated but cant see how to make it easier, once I crack it it will be simple including using a scene for the pop up
