Step 1) Select desired parking type (free, metered, or permit) via Parknav’s parking filter.
Step 2) View “Parking Chance” to see the parking situation in your selected area.
Step 3) Allow Parknav to show you the optimal route to drive with our GPS turn-by-turn voice guided parking navigation (“Navigate and Park”).

Dark Green: Good chance of finding parking (75%-50%)

Step 4) After finding an open parking space we suggest pressing “I Parked” in order to save the location of your car.
