Google has made it easier for you to find your car in a crowded parking lot. Google said in its Help section that you can use Google Now to find the approximate location of your car. If your main mode of transportation in Google Now is driving you can see the saved parking location cards on your application to quickly find where you parked your car.

When the parking location card appears in Google Now, you can see an indicator showing the approximate location of your car. You can also click on the “Previous Locations” option to find other locations where you have recently parked your car. The best part is that your location data for parking location cards is kept confidential and not shared with anyone else.

However, you may see parking location cards even if you didn’t park your car. This is because Google uses your device's sensors to know when you are leaving a moving vehicle. So, you will see a card even if you get down a public transport or your friend’s car.

To customize parking location cards:

  • When a parking location card shows up in Google Now, touch the Menu icon on the card.
  • Answer the questions to choose when to see the card

To turn off parking location cards:

  • When a parking location card shows up in Google Now, touch the Menu icon on the card.
  • Touch No when you’re asked if you want to keep receiving reminders about your parking location.

If you don’t drive often, you can turn off parking location cards by changing your transportation setting in Google Now. To change this setting:

  • Open the main Google Now screen
  • Click on Customize > Everything else > How do you usually get around?

As of now, Google Now is only available in Android devices. The Parking location cards will be available after you update to the latest version of the Google Search for Android app.
