Google Now tells you where you parked your car

If you're one of those people that have spend more time than they admit looking for the place where they've parked the car, then you'll like to know Google is about to give you a helping hand with the latest Google Now update. Besides telling you the weather, upcoming appointments and such, Google Now will now also tell you where you've parked your car.

Sure, there are countless apps that allow you to manually set where you parked you car (or using the simple trick of dropping a pin on Google Maps), but those require you to do it while in this case you don't have to do anything. Just keep in mind the system is not foolproof, and you shouldn't blindly rely on it (for instance, it will likely assume that bus stop where you left the bus might be your parking spot, or the spot where you stepped out of a friends car). But even so, it's one more reminder that might prove useful when your memory fails or when you're too distracted to notice where you've left your vehicle.

There's only one thing that Google should have done: to give you walking navigation instructions for that spot when you ask it: "Dude, where's my car?"
