Parknav - Find Street Parking
By AI Incube, Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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”

What's New in Version 3.2.5
- Minor bug fixes
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!
