Park Here lets you mark on a Google Map where you parked your car. Then, if desired, it will track your movements so you can easily backtrack to your car.
Park Here will also automatically remember where your car is parked each time you shut the engine off (if you connect the phone to the car using Bluetooth).
If you want to get back to your parking space, you can also use the Google Map navigation facility to give you step-by-step directions back to your car. Just click on the parking spot marker and the button to get directions will appear.
Not in a car? Park Here can also be used for tracking your walking, biking, skiing or hiking excursions. Just mark your starting point, turn on tracking, and Park Here will capture your route along with the distance traveled and the elapsed time. You can also add way-points along your route with a single click. The latest version has charts of your speed and altitude along your route. Long click on the route to identify just a segment of the route to see its speed and altitude charts. View the speed and altitude charts of your fastest ski run or bike time trial. Altitude values are fetched from Google to give much greater accuracy than those obtained from GPS. (To get these accurate altitudes, you will have to get a key from Google. Instructions to do that are on the Chart page in Park Here. This is optional)
You can save as many parking spots (or "points of interest") as you want. Parking spots can be named. You can also add notes to a parking spot such as which row and floor the car is parked on. This can be added by typing or by voice dictation.
Even if you are away from home and do not have mobile data access, Park Here can still capture your parking spot (using GPS). Then you can display that spot on an external map such as OsmAnd which uses offline maps to show you where you are.
Park Here also come with a Widget (called Park Now!) that you can put on your home page. A single click on this widget creates a new parking spot, then determines the GPS location of where you, and finally alerts you when it has finished. All this is done in the background so you don't have to fiddle around clicking buttons and typing text.
As with all apps from Newbury Graphics, Park Here is absolutely free and secure. There are no ads, no in-app purchases, and no requests for donations. Park Here uses a minimum of permissions:
1) Internet access to run Google Maps and to get your parking spot address.
2) Write to external storage to save your tracks.
3) Fine and coarse GPS locations to determine where you are parked.
4) Bluetooth (but not Bluetooth management) to get notified when your car engine is turned off.
5) Boot Completion to start the Bluetooth listener when you power up your phone.
6) Vibrate to alert you if the automatic parking facility cannot get an accurate GPS location within 5 minutes of parking your car.
