If You Don't Remember Where you Parked, Google Maps Remembers the Location for you.

Truck Drivers: Myths and Reality

Paraphrasing another saying, there are only two types of people in the world: those who have ever forgotten where they left their car parked and those who lie. It has happened to all of us that we have been very focused on other things, we have parked in a hidden street in an unknown place or a crowded parking lot in a shopping center, and we have not hit the square where it is located. But there is the technology to help you, and with a smartphone and Google Maps, you will never again go around aimlessly looking for the car.

In devices with the Android operating system (Google), the application is installed by default, while in terminals with iOS (Apple), it must be downloaded from the virtual store; By default, the mapping program is Maps. But the Mountain View GPS application is the most used in the world, and in addition to being able to take us from one point to another with constant indications, it also hides some exciting and efficient functions, as may well be the case of reminding ourselves where we have parked our vehicle.

For this, the system takes advantage of the mobile GPS and the car's Bluetooth. Thus, on the one hand, it saves the exact location, and, on the other, by having the mobile phone paired to the multimedia system, it tells the application when you have gotten off. Regardless of the mobile phone you have, saving your parking location is quite simple in Google Maps, although the associated options in iOS are somewhat limited compared to Android, which can save additional data such as help notes, add a photo, or set one. Alarm for you have a ticket.

Once you've found the perfect place to park, open Google Maps and search for your current location (the blue dot). Click on the dot, and a pop-up menu will appear with various options. Click "Set as parking locationThis will put a pin in the location where you are and will label it as where you parked. Check that the map pin is in the correct location, go over to look at the street name (if necessary), and make sure the pin is precisely where the vehicle is.

Google Maps will place a message in the notification tray of your mobile phone that you can press to locate the car quickly. Clicking on the notification will open all the standard options of the application to find your way back. If you want to send someone else a link to the location, search for "Share" within the saved parking lot at the bottom of the interface. (If you don't see the bar, tap once anywhere on the screen to make it appear.)

On the other hand, you can also use Google Assistant on Android phones, although it may not be the best option. Android's artificial intelligence only approximates your location, which may not be good enough to find your car in a parking lot full of many other cars. Anyway, if we have given you permission to access our location, say "Ok, Google, remember where I parked," or some similar command and the application will register it correctly.

Finally, keep in mind that Google Maps only allows you to save only one parking location at a time, so if you try to save a second location while one is already saved, that new location will overwrite the original.
