Tip of the Week: Google Maps is the Parking Assistant You Didn’t Know You Needed

Tip of the Week: Google Maps is the Parking Assistant You Didn’t Know You Needed

We’ve all been there before: you’re walking out into the parking lot, in a hurry to get somewhere, and cannot for the life of you remember where you parked. While this used to be a time-wasting problem for many, Google has added a feature to Google Maps that allows you to avoid the desperate race against the clock to get to your vehicle in time to get to your next destination.


Adding on to the parking availability feature that Google rolled out recently, you can now save the exact location of your parking space for future reference, taking notes or even pictures to better remind you where you left your vehicle.

To use this feature:

  • Open Maps on your mobile device.
  • Tap the Blue Location Dot on the displayed map.
  • Select Save your parking.

Doing this will not only save your car’s current location, but will also remind you via your notification pane. As we mentioned before, it also allows you to snap some photos and jot down a few notes to help remind you of where your car is located. If your car is by a parking meter, you can even add a timed alert to make sure you don’t run over and wind up with a fine.

So, what do you think? Will this feature save you some time and stress? Share your thoughts with us in the comments!
