- Free / Paid indicator for parking on detail pages
- Destinations now show if there is on-site parking
- Change your route to nearby parking
Let's explore the new features.
New Parking Indicators : Today's update have cool new indicator feature which will inform drivers about the parking situation before getting to a destination.
You can see the parking related info, in the details page. It will also give you the info if parking at that place is free or paid.
Above is the screenshot of the new detailed parking information page.
"At this time, the field only shows if parking is free or paid, but doesn't appear to include prices for paid parking. To get pricing, you'll probably still have to resort to other methods. Perhaps this will be added in a future update like it was with fuel prices."
Else, the latest version has new traffic difficulty indicator "On-Site" which shows drivers if they can park at their destination or should search for a some other option. In Previous version Maps would show one of three levels : Easy, Medium and Limited.
New Feature: Change your route to nearby parking space.
The Maps app developers are working to address this common scenario and help drivers make the decision to reroute to nearby parking.
As per the AndoridPolice observation:
"New text in the apk describes a feature that will prompt users to add a parking lot to their routes. Basically, it will offer to search for parking lots and garages near the destination and offer up a list. Users will then be able to pick a parking location, which will then be added to the route."That's it!!
