Help with BMW remote APP?

I can use all the functions on the Iphone Remote App like send address, honk horn, unlock car. But I cant locate my car, EVER. No matter if Im driving, or parked. The navigation works perfect otherwise. Any ideas?

Downloaded .apk file for Android (searched web to find it because Play Store doesn't allow it for U.S. yet). Honked my horn remotely . Takes a while to update location. It has room for improvement but might help in some situation. Won't work well if both phone and car don't have good (3G/4G) internet access.
Hint 1: If you find the .apk for Android, e-mail it to youself (e.g. GMail account). Then there is a function to "install" right from e-mail.
Hint 2: Use login user/pw for My BMW Assist account (all CAPS for both!). Then assign a 4 digit pin for the app (need to enter each time you launch).
