If you have ever had the question “where did I park my car?” you’re not alone. This is a common problem that can be avoided by making use of the iPhone’s new where-did-I-park-my-car feature. The iPhone has built-in Bluetooth and CarPlay connectivity, and the Maps app can drop a pin when it senses that you’ve stopped driving. To get started, open the Settings app on your iPhone and enable Location Services and privacy.
To access the location of the parked car, tap the corresponding icon in the Locations section of the iOS map. In the “Your Car” tab, tap the toggle next to “Show Parked Location.” If you don’t find it, type in “Parked Car” and press enter. You’ll be greeted by a tiny Maps card showing your current location, as well as the time you parked your car. Moreover, you can write a note or take a picture of your car’s location with the camera.
Alternatively, you can use the Google Maps app on your smartphone to remember where you parked your car. The Google Maps app can help you remember where you parked your car, as it also doubles as a navigation app. The process of saving a location as a parking spot is easy. For Android and iOS users, instructions can be found here. A Google Maps app that saves the location of your parking spot is your best bet, and it’s free!
