Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Parker will briefly use GPS in the background when it detects that you have parked your car or driven away from a parking spot. This allows Parker to show you where you parked your car.
What's New in Version 4.7.1
Improved Battery usage
Minor bug fixes
Parker automatically detects where you parked – even while Parker is in the background. Now you can get walking directions to your car, and view your parking history – without manually telling Parker that you parked ! (Note this requires ‘Background Location Updates’. To disable this feature, turn off ‘Map Parking Spot’ in Settings).
Needs an update
Fairly useful information. The available options for location services are only "always" (uses location services even when app isn't running, draining battery) or "never" (can't automatically locate parking). Needs a "while using" option. With location services turned off, need to manually find your location on a world map every time app is opened.
Great for college students!
This app is extremely useful for people going to large college campuses like I will be in the fall. It even lets you "park" and remembers where you parked your car! It is very helpful when you are looking for a parking spot or roaming through a sea of cars looking for yours.
Well done app, but mysteriously chews through the battery when it hasn't been used in months. Had to uninstall.
