The CarZar makes Location-based Car-Spotting Social, Useful, and Global, whether You're a Car Enthusiast, Car Buyer or Just Car Curious!
 
Paris, France, September 30, 2010 -- The CarZar (www.TheCarZar.com), the world's first location-based social automotive app, was unveiled today at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The CarZar is dedicated to making it easy for consumers to share their passion for cars through a location-based car-spotting app that is fun and easy to use, as well as social, useful and global.

"There are nearly a quarter of a billion vehicles on the road in the US alone, and nearly that many drivers, most of whom either have a dream car in mind or are already passionate about their current vehicle…or both," said Jared Hamilton, The CarZar co-creator.  "The CarZar's location-based technology enables this vast population – and many more across the globe - to share their vehicle aspirations, passions and practical information across the social networking community."
 
Leveraging the largest social networks (such as Facebook and Twitter) and location-based services (such as Foursquare and Gowalla), The CarZar enables millions of users to spot and share millions of vehicle images, and their locations, in real time, with millions more - while also providing the best of location-based social community interaction, including comments, reviews, user profiles, most popular vehicle lists and badges.
 
"The CarZar's mission is to bring the car enthusiast out in everyone - casual car fans, in-market car buyers, or dedicated car owners - and is the first and only app to make sharing vehicle pictures easy, social and rewarding," said Eric Miltsch, The CarZar co-creator.  
 
With the CarZar App for iPhone, users can:
 
·  Upload car pictures and share them on Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare & Gowalla
