Google Maps Receives Public Parkings And Parking Lots Info

Google Maps is a mapping mobile application that has been developed for iOS and Android.

Google Maps comes with many features such as: street view, turn-by-turn navigation, public transit information and many more. It is a great application that you can use while traveling by car around the world or when you want to move around in a foreign city. It also supports local transportation, which means that you will get information about what bus/subway you need to catch in order to get to a specific location in the city.

Anyway, today we will talk about a new feature that has just been added to this application. First of all, we remind you that “Parking Difficulty” feature has been added to the application at the beginning of 2017, but now Google has brought “Find Parking” option.

“Find Parking” feature will pull up a list of parking garages and lots and it will give you directions to them. To make things better, you also have the ability to add the parking in a list, which is pretty good, especially if you plan to re-visit the area.

In the US the new “Find Parking” feature is only available for Android devices, and it currently functions only in 25 cities/metro areas: Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas/Fort Worth, DC, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, San Diego, Sacramento, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, and Tampa.

The same feature is also available in 25 more cities across the globe for Android and iOS users. These cities are: Alicante, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Barcelona, Cologne, Darmstadt, Dusseldorf, London, Madrid, Malaga, Manchester, Milan, Montreal, Moscow, Munich, Paris, Prague, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Sao Paulo, Stockholm, Stuttgart, Toronto, Valencia, and Vancouver.
