    We used to do that to my friend's VW Scirocco in high school. The problem was, we did it when it was parked in a full parking lot, and it was difficult to maneuver out.

    Can you please tell me where exactly the RidewithGPS spreadsheet option is? I did some searching but couldn't find it. Maybe most importantly, is it one of the pay options?
