Are you one of those who have spent more time than you would like looking for your car? In the event that you are not able to lucidly remember where you have parked your vehicle, and you have not taken a photo of it either to at least get an idea of the area in which it could be, you have a problem. From this precise moment begins a process of going around a thousand and one times in a certain area, insistently locking and unlocking the vehicle doors, to see if the noise coming from the car or its lights illuminate us in this mission.
If you have seen yourself represented by this situation, and you would like it not to happen again, Google Maps has a very practical function that will save you from any possible burden that you may have. The famous Google maps application has an endless number of functions that will allow you, among other things, to check how busy a certain road is and even the free parking spaces that you can find on them. But not only that. It also allows you to save the location where you have parked so that it costs you much less to find the car.
How to save your car’s location on Google Maps
To find out exactly where you have parked your vehicle, all you have to do is open the Google Maps application, available on both iOS and Android. After parking the vehicle, and getting out of it, tap on the blue dot that indicates your current location. When you have done this, a menu will open through which you can perform different actions. From sharing your location with third parties to reporting a problem or adding a missing site. Among all of them we can find one in which you can read ‘Save parking’.
If we click on it, Google will save the position of our vehicle until further notice. In the event that we want to add more information about the car park in question, we will only have to click on the icon again that warns us about where we have parked. This will allow us both to trace the route to the current position of the car or to modify any data about the event. Among other things, you will be able to change the location, share it with third parties, write any type of note or even the remaining time in it.
Remember to clear the parking lot
A most practical function in case you have paid for a parking by the hour, as it will allow you to know first-hand how long the vehicle has been parked so that you can do your accounts. When you have reached your vehicle again, you just have to click on it and delete it.
In this way, and if you are one of those who tend to forget where they parked their car, this most practical function will be very useful for you. Not only to know where it is, but it will also allow you to add additional information regarding the car park in question so that you don’t end up paying more than necessary to forget about it.
