Now Google will not only help you to get where you’re going, but it’ll also assist you to remember where you parked once you’ve arrived. Google Maps has introduced a new feature that will help you remember where you parked your car in case you happen to forget. The new feature has been added to the Android and iOS versions of Google Maps and it can be accessed in different ways.
The newly added tool is very simple as long as the location tracking is enabled. You need to pull up Maps and tap on “Save your parking.” From there, you’ll be able to add in details to help you find the vehicle such as rows or nearby landmarks, among other nifty features.
For Android users, all they have to do is tap the blue dot and then tap “Save your parking” to add their parking location to the map. This will show a label on the map itself identifying where you parked your car. For iOS users, the steps are similar except that the after the tap on blue dot, the label will read, “Set as parking location” to the map itself.
Users can also add details about their parking spot by tapping the label to open the parking card. They can also take shots of their parking spot and share their parking location with friends.
“This is in addition to the automatic parking detection you might have already noticed in Google Maps for iOS. If you connect to your car using USB audio or Bluetooth, your parking spot will be automatically added to the map when you disconnect and exit the vehicle,” said Google in a blog post late on Tuesday.
