Update, 4/26/17: The article has been updated with additional information now that the parking feature is out of beta testing.

Google Maps is finally starting to understand the headache that is parking. Earlier this year it added a parking availability feature that let you know how hard it would be to find a spot at your destination, but the latest addition to Maps is one we’ve been waiting years to get.

With the latest version of Maps on iOS and Android, Google is giving it a new home, right inside the Maps app. And it’s a snap to use. When you tap the blue location dot on the map on your Android phone, you’ll see a new “Save your parking” option, (or “Set as parking location” on iOS), which will let you chart your position right inside Maps.
