A car finder application for car2go.

Allows you to browse the map for the nearest car or pick one from a list sorted by distance. Manage your car bookings and easily find your booked cars by calculating the shortest pedestrian route to them. For the case a car runs low on gas or battery, GetMeWheels tells you where to find gas stations or Electic Drive charging poles.

GetMeWheels is currently available for Ubuntu Touch, Maemo5, MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan. Symbian support has been dropped because of updated License agreements of the Nokia Store which I don’t agree with.

Ubuntu Touch users can download it from the Ubuntu App Store. The packages for the N900 can be found in the maemo-extras-devel repository. The N9/N950 and Symbian versions are available from the Nokia Store. can be downloaded here: getmewheels2_1.3.0_armel.deb

The source code can be found at:

    I had 0.4.2-1 on my n900 – I’ve been very happy to use it. Unfortunately it’s not working anymore.
    Is there a way to install a newer version on the n900 (fremantle)?

      I’m afraid I have to let you down here. If you have some programming skills it should be doable realitevly easy. But I won’t spend the time to do that. If you want to give it a try I would offer you to write a summary of what needs to be done. Contact me via email in that case.

    I’m really happy, that you provide this fantastic app for N9. Thank you very much for it!

    I was just wondering, how are your plans of maybe supporting Sailfish on the upcoming Jolla? It shouldn’t be that difficult to port I think.

    Would be really great!

    • Michael says:

      Hmm, not sure. It shouldn’t be much efforts to do, but I don’t own a Sailfish device and am spending a lot of time on Ubuntu Touch. So don’t count on a Sailfish port anytime soon, unless someone else picks it up.

      • naytsyrhc says:

        ok, so if you don’t mind, I’d give that a try. Is the source code available?

        • Michael says:

          Sure. I’m happy to review your code and will happily accept such a port in the codebase. Just file a merge request every once in a while. I’d suggest you start with compiling the C++ code and adjusting the build system in a first merge proposal. In a second step then create the QML ui for it.

    • Martin says:

      Any news about a sailfish fork? Would really like to see this app on my jolla :-)

      • Michael says:

        Hi Martin,

        Sadly no news. I haven’t heard anything from naytsyrhc any more, so I don’t think he’s actively working on a Jolla port.

    Hi Michael,
    do have any information if the app is still working for the N9? I had problems activating my account:
    After logging in on the website and allowing the app to access my account it redirects me to your web page instead of giving me the activation code.
    Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    Hey Michael, can I also unlock a car with this app? I heard recently that car2go has changed their unlock procedure. Before this change you unlocked them using your passport stamp of car2go and now they said you should use your phone to do so. I haven’t (and wasn’t able to) tried it yet because I’m using a jolla phone.

    • Michael says:

      Hi Matthias,

      No, GetMeWheels doesn’t support unlocking the car. Sadly in the city I live in (Ulm) they’ve stopped car2go so I don’t really have a chance to test things any more :(

      I’d be happy to help people with access to car2go in developing the app further but on my own I can’t really do it any more (and also don’t have a use for it any more).
