Google Now can help you find your parked car

It may be a small update, but it is definitely something that I’ll be using the future. As the owner of a generic car in a generic color, I always seem to be wandering around the parking lot trying to figure out where exactly I parked. Thankfully, this will soon be a thing of the past as Google has rolled out a new feature in Google Now that will help you find your parked car.

As of the latest update, Google will remember the last position in which the vehicle has been stopped and will automatically keep track of that last location. Really nothing else other than that: Google Now will place a pin when you stop your car for an extended period of time so that you can pull up the information when you need to find your way back.

Sure, while this seems like a simple solution, there is still some bugs that need to be ironed out: you may trigger a parking card in Google Now if you’ve received a ride from a friend or if you’ve recently taken public transit, but Google is in the process of working out the kinks. As with most things Google Now related, you can customize when these parking cards are suggested and can turn them off entirely if you don’t want to see them showing up.

Parking location cards will start appearing once you’ve updated your Google Search on Android to the latest version.
