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.

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.
