Custom car icon/photo

So this may seem trivial, but in the pursuit of making the app for Automatic more personal, I wanted to suggest the idea of custom car "icons" for use on the map where it shows your car parked. It's nothing more than fun right now, but perhaps the icon (perhaps offer and use licensed logos or stock photos of the make and model and year, or even allow uploading of the user's own photo to represent their car) could not only appear on the map when locating your vehicle but can be used in place of a text label elsewhere on the web dashboard and in other labs as well.

Just an idea. Perhaps it would be helpful when sharing a parking location too because now a photo of the very car can also be included in that shared info if so desired (not everyone knows what an Acadia Green 2001 Subaru Forester looks like off the top of their head).

We love the idea of more customizability with the car icon and it's definitely something we're working on :) Thanks for the suggestion!
