Google Maps, one of the popular apps that are used for navigation purposes has added a feature – Save your parking location. This feature will let you remember where you had parked your vehicle. All you have to do is just park your car and open the app and mark the location. It will store all the details and help you find your car easily.
The new feature will save your current location and put a noticeable P icon on the map. This would not be enough for a multi-story parking lot. You can add a new interface to save other information. For instance, you can adjust the dot location, type notes or add photos to the parking spot.
