PARKNAV saves drivers time when looking for street parking by providing the real-time street parking availability for open free, metered or permit parking in the US and Germany.
HOW IT WORKS:
Step 1) Select the type of street parking you want to find (free, metered or permit).
Step 2) Parknav shows you the real-time open street parking within your immediate area (via a color street grid).
- Green: High chance of finding street parking
- Orange: Fair chance of finding street parking
- Red: Low chance of finding street parking
Step 3) Use the “Best parking route” feature to display the optimal driving route which maximizes your chances of finding an open street parking space
Step 4) Save your car’s parking location via “Save car location”
Step 5) Follow the walking path back to your parked car via “Walk to car”

Ratings and Reviews
Great design, not enough coverage
I really like this app, it’s exactly what I was looking for (outlines streets in different colors based on parking availability just like google maps does with traffic). However, I was really disappointed in how little area it covers. Only the downtown areas of major cities (Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, etc...not even medium/smaller cities like St. Louis are covered)... not really practical for my daily use, which is what I was looking for.
Improved user experience
I really like this new version of the Parknav app. It has a smooth fast "heat map" feature that updates as you move the map, and my favorite feature of "path to park" that also acts as a navigation of sorts.
Kudos for the improvements!
Only manhattan?and small area of it
I was hoping it would help parking spot's hunting in the queens,but nope.. only in mahattan and obly couple blocks
