Google Maps to remind parking locations on Android and iOS

Google Maps will now remember the parked location

Say goodbye to minutes/hours of frustration trying to remember where you parked.

Google said Wednesday that Google Maps now supports saving auto parking information so drivers can more easily find their cars. Once saving is successful, a label will appear on the map, which will show the drivers where their cars are parked.

You'll be able to add notes, enter the time left on your parking ticket, add photos and share the location with your friends and family. Meanwhile, iOS users will need to select the "Set as parking location" after hitting that blue dot.

Fortunately Google Maps for Android and iOS now gets you out of a tight spot by saving your space.

Earlier this year Google Maps introduced a new feature to its app that allowed users to remember where they parked.

Although often used as source for comic relief, forgetting where one parked one's vehicle is enough of a problem that Google designed a feature for it.

Google has officially added a new feature to its popular Maps application that will keep track of where you parked.

You can update your Google Maps app on your Android device to enjoy this new feature.

Google Maps is about to get even more useful. This will add a label to the spot which you can go back to later.

Open up Google Maps and press on the blue dot that indicates your current location.

Also on iOS is the option to bring up the card with the various options such as sharing the location of your parking with a contact of your choosing. Once the parking location is saved, users will be able to see where the vehicle was parked.
