At this time this feature of Google Maps was reserved for users in the United States. Finding parking at your destination was a little easier there, thanks to the help of Google Maps that showed you some cards with warnings about the likelihood and difficulty of arranging parking at a particular location.
Parking with Google Maps now reaches more countries
Google Maps functionality now reaches more countries outside the U.S. However, users in that country will be able to enjoy another or more relevant news. When planning your trips you will soon find some car parks, add them to your route and create a list of parking places.
At this time, Google Maps will not be able to find out how expensive parking will be or how many places a car park will have, which is already possible with some dedicated Parking Apps right here in UK and the rest of Europe. This will be one of the additional features Google should be working on.
How to use the new Google Maps feature?
To find out how difficult it will be to park at your destination, just enter that destination in Google Maps and pay attention to the icon that will show how difficult it is to park.
Parking difficulty will range from Limited, Medium to Easy, based on information provided by users in their cities and locations, and some learning from Google's own artificial intelligence.
How to find parking with Google Maps
Finding parking can be quite an unpredictable task so the tech giant has decided to make finding a park near your destination available within the Google Maps App for Android and iOS.
In the 25 US cities of Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas / Fort Worth, DC, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, San Diego, Sacramento, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis and Tampa, the new feature is now available for Android and iOS.
Google Maps User Benefits
For those who are afraid before leaving home, fearing the difficulties of finding parking at their destination, the new Google Maps feature will solve this problem for you, without having to worry about anything else. At least that will be in theory.
Just open the Google Maps app on your smartphone and type, choose the destination you're going to go to. Then, in addition to the directions you will need, the App will tell you how difficult or if there is even parking at that location.
This information will be available with a new icon that will rank the difficulty of parking the car between "easy", "medium" or "limited". It will be an asset to all of us who travel frequently.
News will reach 25 more cities by the beginning of next year 2018. This list of upcoming cities includes Alicante, Amsterdam, Barcelona, London, Madrid, Moscow, Paris, Prague, Rio de Janeiro, Rome and Toronto.
