Where did I park? I never re­mem­ber!

AGoogle Maps is pretty good at this. On iOS de­vices, your lo­ca­tion is au­to­mat­i­cally marked when you dis­con­nect your phone from your car’s Blue­tooth or USB con­nec­tions; on An­droid, it may or may not work depend­ing on the di­rec­tion of the wind. You can drop a pin if you’re re­ally wor­ried. Google’s Park­ing Lo­ca­tion fea­ture is also re­ally rather spe­cial. It al­lows you to make notes on your ex­act lo­ca­tion (for ex­am­ple what floor you’re on, the bay num­ber, or the regis­tra­tion num­ber of that car you scraped the side of while try­ing to get into the space), as well as at­tach­ing pic­tures of your park­ing spot and set­ting in­te­gral timers to mon­i­tor how long you’ve got left be­fore the law im­pounds your mis­be­hav­ing ve­hi­cle. If you’re ex­tremely bad at di­rec­tions, you could also bolt a GPS tracker to your mo­tor: the SmarTrack Tri­dent needs a subscription, and is Cat 6 rated, mean­ing that your in­surer will ab­so­lutely love it.
