Take a Camera Phone Picture with Your Cell Phone of Street Signs to Remember Where You Parked in a Big City

Cell Phone Camera Tip: Remember Where You Parked in a City

Last week I told you about my geek tip for remembering where you parked in a huge parking structure or mall lot by taking a pic with your cell phone's camera, but needing to know where you parked isn't confined to being in a parking lot. Have you ever tried to park in a big city, for instance?

I happen to live in a very busy neighborhood where parking places are scarce. Once you find a place to park your car, you're pretty far away from your destination. Before leaving your car in no man's land, snap a picture of the street signs (preferably the intersection) with your cell phone's camera.

Check it on your way back, and forget about wandering the streets like some sad, lost tourist.

i believe there's now an iphone app that shows your where you're parked! ;) and yes, you have to remember to set it before you leave from your parking spot!

Good idea. I usually opt for paying for parking in big cities..I'm too lazy to find street parking. But, I'll definitely keep this in mind for when I do decide to do street parking..

Haha.. the people that would forget where their car is parked are the same people that would forget or wouldn't take a picture with their cell phone. This is pointless.
