On April 25th, Google rolled out a new update to Google Maps that allows users to save their parking location. The new update will allow you to save parking location, edit it, and share it with friends.
To save your parking location:
- Open Google Maps right after parking
- Tap on the blue button that indicates your location
- Tap on “Save your parking”
Doing so will save your parking indication, which will be indicated with a “You parked here”. “Parking Location” will appear at the bottom of the screen, and tapping on it will allow you to edit your parking location (notes such as exact parking spot), take a picture of it, and share it with friends.
