The car parking location is determined through a combination of cell towers, GPS and known WiFi locations. This new feature is an expansion of the automatic parking detection tool, that works with Bluetooth in your car just to determine where you parked your car. But if you don’t have a car with Bluetooth, this tool was useless. Until this update.

Last year, Apple also launched a similar feature but automatic parking-detection tool for Apple Maps. If you connect your iPhones to your cars using Bluetooth, then your car parking spots will be added on the map automatically with a pin code when they disconnect and get out of the car. And Google has offered a similar tool for iOS owners using Google Maps since March.

Google Maps is available to download on iOS and Android app stores.
