When you turn off the car, your phone should display a notification that Maps has dropped a pin to show you where to park. The location of your car should appear, but if you do not see it, it will probably be parked in the parking lot of a nearby gas station or grocery store. On the main screen when parking, tap the Add photo button to take a photo of the car's location. You can also create a note with more details and tap the Edit button below to see a picture of her and the environment. Tap the Add photo button, then tap the "Add photo" button in the top right corner of your screen on your phone's home screen, or tap "Add photo" when you're parked in a car. To find the car, open the app and tap the "Back to Position" button and select a location. Name the location, select the driver name, the vehicle type and the car type you are looking for, and then tap the save button. You can tap the AR icon to see your surroundings as you walk, or you can switch to a hybrid view that combines the two. Tap the hamburger icon in the top left to switch to Normal, Satellite, Terrain or Hybrid. GPS navigation makes it easy to record the position of your car and later find or find the car. Then you can snap a photo of the note and add it to your location, and you can even find a car on the street, in a parking lot or even in the middle of the street. Just follow the direction of the pointer and the app will steer you to the right place. To park the car, tap the compass icon to zoom in on your current location, or tap the Pin Parking Car. If you are following the footpath to park, you can tap "Go" and then tap "Parking" or "Pin" again. When it is time to find the car, open the app and follow the arrows to get to the cars. With the right smartphone app, you can mark where to park your car and then use your smartphone's camera to locate it. Google Maps allows you to record the location of your car, and you can also use Apple Maps, but you will need to call Google Maps to help you find the car if you have an iPhone or Android phone, although the steps on Android differ slightly. You can get started anytime by downloading the app to your smartphone, but you will need a beacon to complete the setup. Once you have downloaded it, open it, log in and log out, and you will be downloaded. You have several options to sign in, including a passcode, Touch ID or Face ID, and then Significant Locations. You may be asked for your passcodes or Touch ID / Face ID, so just select the option, then turn the switch on under "Signal Locations" and log in. As cars become more connected, it is more important than ever to keep car thieves at bay by installing the latest software in your vehicle. Then go to "Settings" and turn on the switch under "Show parking location" and track the location of your car the next time you drive anywhere. If you have a phone, you can also talk to your dealer to find out if the car manufacturer has brought a new keyless trailer for added safety. Some manufacturers let you download updates from their website and transfer them from a USB storage device to the cars. On newer vehicles, upgrade to a more modern version of the software, such as Android or iOS or even Windows Phone 7. Keeping your car away from prying eyes in a locked garage is an obvious way to ensure that it is not spotted by opportunistic thieves or those roaming the area. Thieves therefore rely on the owner not to have bothered to leave the car keys in a safe place, especially not overnight. If your car is particularly valuable, you may want the keys, but be aware that burglars use force when they break in and get in to find them. Make sure you place them even in busy places like restaurants and cafes, as omitting them when shopping is considered the cardinal sin of car ownership. Although car theft has declined in recent years, largely due to the ability to penetrate and hack into on-board systems, hundreds of thousands of cars are still stolen every year. Thieves who know what they are doing can make their vehicle relatively easy to use. Simply never leaving the key in the window significantly reduces the likelihood that someone will decide that the car is worth it. Many burglaries can also be avoided by using overtly obvious but often overlooked methods that could one day save your car from being forgotten and wiped away by an opportunistic cretin.
