Google, meanwhile, had already introduced its own proactive parking saving

feature via Google Now


														
							

Google Maps has just added a handy feature that will help users remember where they parked. This appears as a new menu option when you tap the blue dot, and will place a “P” icon on the map so you can find your way back to your spot. While remembering your parking location is something Apple Maps has done since the launch of iOS 10, Google’s implementation is a bit more robust.

With iOS 10, Apple Maps will mark the location of your car with a pin when you disconnect your iPhone from Bluetooth or CarPlay. You also can edit the location of the vehicle in the map and add a note or a photo through Apple’s Parked Location feature.

Google didn’t make a formal announcement about the parking saver, perhaps because the parking spot saver has not yet made its way to iOS. But the company did confirm with us it is indeed new.

The feature is currently available on Google Maps on Android (v. 9.49).
