The new ParkingAssistant from BMW has finally put an end to the annoying problem of expired parking tickets. Now you can attend important appointments or run errands in peace, without constantly having to look at your watch or work out how long your parking ticket is still valid. BMW ParkingAssistant sends a signal in advance to remind you before your parking ticket, permit or parking meter expires.
When parking your car all you have to do is start the parking time. Two different viewing modes ensure that you always have an overview of the remaining parking time. The time it takes you to get back to your vehicle from your current location on foot is automatically taken into consideration and displayed in the time calculation. The route display on your iPhone makes finding your vehicle child’s play. Wasted time searching for your parking space and level in a multi-storey car park will now also be a thing of the past.
