    I am looking for a good Car Finder WP8 application that can display my position and the location of the car on a preloaded HERE map.
    Can you suggest one?

    This one has gotten good reviews and is free. Cloud Park | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
    I installed it. I will test it thoroughly in the next days.

    I have discovered that Cloud Park is most of the time useless as long as it requires an internet connection. It does not work with a preloaded HERE map.

    "Warning
    Internet connection is not available. Please check your connection settings"

    This is the message I get each time I want to use Cloud Park while Wi-Fi is off.

    I can not use HERE drive because I have not SIM card in the phone which is required for that app. to run, but I can use HERE maps (the other application that comes together with HERE drive).

    I've been using Where's My Car for the last couple of years and love it. Have had it back in the days when I had the Trophy. It's free in the Store.

    After more tests with Cloud Park I can say it definitely works without a Wi-Fi connection. Unfortunately it displays warnings and makes the phone to vibrate, this is a set of distractions which misleads the user and make him to believe a Wi-Fi connection is a must.

    I also tested, as suggested, Where's My Car. It works well also the map displayed is small, half the size of the screen. A little problem with this application is that it shows all the time a Warning: "Unable to contact the server. Please try again later" which stays above the middle of the map if Wi-Fi is off. Anyway the message is just slightly visible so it is not annoying.

    When you navigate to a adress and close of Here Drive that location is saved, when you tap find my car it will give directions to that last saved position.

    I wondered this too and here is the answer

    To get started with Find my car, you’ll need to navigate using HERE Drive. Find my car logs the location where you stop moving and finish using navigation, and the next time you tap the Find my car button, it’ll offer directions to get you back there again. Simple
    Not sure what happens if you then use Here Drive to walk somewhere in a strange city?
