Google Maps can now remember where you parked so you don't have to


Google Maps' latest feature remembers the last place you parked your car, causing sighs of relief from forgetful people everywhere.

The feature, first revealed in beta last month, is now available to iOS and Android users, Google announced Tuesday. By tapping the blue dot that denotes current location, users can bring up options including "save your parking." You can also add notes to say where in a garage you parked and set a timer so you don't forget about the parking meter.
