Google, Apple Maps apps remembers so you don’t have to

Google Maps automatically geopins your parked car when you turn off your vehicle and bluetooth disconnects.

It happens to the best of us. Few things are more embarrassing or frustrating than losing your own car. With so many cars looking similar, and the lines comprising parking spaces looking identical, it’s no wonder it is so easy to lose our cars.

Luckily, Google Maps has us covered. We are still testing this feature’s effectiveness, but so far we are impressed. As soon as your mobile phone disconnects from your car’s Bluetooth, Google Maps will be triggered to perceive your car as parked. Moving away from the vehicle, you will receive a notification on your mobile phone that Google Maps has geotagged your parking spot.

Apple has a similar feature, and even allows you to snap a picture to connect your car to its surroundings.

Not only can you get directions back to where you misplaced your parked car, Apple Maps allows you to snap a picture so you recognize its surroundings.
