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):
- Bright Green = 100%-75% chance
- Dark Green = 75%-50% chance
- Orange = 50%-25% chance
- Red = 25%-0% chance
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”
