Google Maps Won’t Let You Forget Your Parking Spot Anymore

Google Maps Won’t Let You Forget Your Parking Spot Anymore

Did you know?

A dog can remember something for a maximum time span of 2 minutes while a chimpanzee has a memory span as low as 20 seconds. It probably explains us humans and our short term memory powers. The theory of evolution might actually be true. We may actually have evolved from apes.

Me for example, it’s habitual for me to forget my wallet, keys, cell phone, and what not every other day. My memory powers are so bad that it takes me at least two visits to actually get a location right. But that’s probably just me. However, there are some things that we collectively forget as people; our own parking spot for an example. Feel me yet?

Google maps have filled our lives with a divine blessing in the form of an updated feature that remembers exactly where you parked your car. You may forget your own parking space, but Google maps won’t. Google maps feature that came out last month allows knowing if parking at a specific spot can be difficult or tricky. Now the new navigation feature gives you the liberty to memorialize your parking spot at your fingertips.

The new feature is available on both play store and iTunes, compatible with both android, and iOS.

Android users simply need to tap the blue dot once they’re done parking and then hit “Save your parking” to drop a pin handily labeled “You parked here”.

Sounds easy right?

It gets even easier for iOS users.

They go through the same process except they don’t have to remember to drop a pin. If your iPhone is connected to your car via Bluetooth or USB, Google Maps uses a built-in feature for Apple Maps to automatically tag your car’s location once your phone disconnects from the vehicle.

Well it seems legit. Since iPhone users are less intelligent in general, they deserve this advantage. 😉
