Notifications Can Keep Track Of Where You Parked Your Car

The app also lets you include how much time is remaining on the spot, and it'll set a timer to keep you from running over.

Keeping tabs on where you parked can be hard. First spotted by Android Police, when you tap the blue location dot on the map you'll see a new Save your parking option, which will let you chart your position right inside Maps. It even checks the traffic ahead and it re-routes you automatically in order to make sure that you get faster to your destination. Three months after Apple removed the popular Google Maps from its operating system to replace it with its own mapping software, a Google Maps app has been added to the iTunes store. So whether you're in an expansive parking lot in suburbia or a winding parking garage in the middle of a big city, you'll have the information you need to find your ride. When you park you can start a timer to count down your time left on a meter or until the garage closes, so when time's nearly out, Maps can remind you to go grab your wheels before you end up getting a ticket (or get trapped in a garage downtown all night).

And if you happen to be in a metered spot, Google Maps will also let you input data on how much time you have left, setting a timer to remind you to either high-tail it back to your vehicle, or pay the piper.

After filling out this info, Google Maps will spawn a notification reminding you that you have a saved parking location.

Google has long offered a parking reminder card in Google Now, but it's always been kind of flaky (and never really belonged there).

In the case that your phone is not connected via CarPlay or Bluetooth, you could use Apple's Mark Location feature instead. But soon, it'll probably be coming to Google Maps on iOS, too, and will debut in public form.
