Have you ever lost your car in a parking lot before (especially all the lots at FIU’s MMC Campus)? No worries, it happens to the best of us. Well do I have good news for you! Smartphones have created helpful apps to find the exact spot you parked your car. Many of the parking apps use your smartphone’s GPS capability to pinpoint where you parked. Other apps may use advanced functionality like augmented reality (AR is a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data). These apps are so useful; some can even keep track of the time left in your parking meter!
Most of these apps aren’t free; however at the end of the day, a little bit of money may go a long way! You won’t ever have to worry about forgetting where you parked your car again!
Top 5 Apps to remember where you parked your car:
- Car Finder AR
- Find My Car Smarter
- Car Locater
- Where Did I Park
