    Hi, on ios 10 was introduced new function that notify where you parked car automatically, then add pin in maps, it help locate it after if necessary.

    Problem is that I was not able to make it work any time.

    Maps in settings have toggle called show parked car. It already is activated.
    I have bluetooth in my car and it connects automatically when I enter in car.
    I have ios 10, iphone 6.

    How it is supposed to work?

    Not need open apple, just drive and when you exit car Ir will notify with location pin (again, not need maps opened?), i tested this way and also tested with Apple maps opened all route and even doing this, it not added pin where I parked my car (outside)..

    Someone could help, this is excellent function and I wasn't able to make it work yet.

    Do you have frequent locations enabled in location services? I think it also uses that service?

    This should be the fix. I had the same problem as the OP and once I turned it on it worked.

    I am using a icleaver himbox hb01 Bluetooth to aux adapter, as my factory RAV4 stereo didn't have Bluetooth. So far I have not gotten the automatic parked car location saving to work.

    I have heard that if the Bluetooth tells the phone it is a headset (vs a car stereo) that will disable the parked car function. Any idea how to tell if this is the case with a particular device? Any Bluetooth to aux adapters that are known to work currently?

    I went to the Apple store at the mall yesterday. I was surprised to see a notification pop up telling me about my cars location in maps. It was pretty cool.

    I have aux to bluetooth adapter in my car. My iPhone connects to the bluetooth whenever I start the car but the parked car feature never worked.
    My roommate has a BMW its new, has bluetooth and everything and every time when I connect my phone to his car for music it works, parked car notification would pop up on my phone when I exit his car. So I guess us older cars owner wont be able to enjoy this new cool feature.

    Hey thanks a lot for the link!

    I checked it out on Amazon and ordered it right away. My car doesn't have built in bluetooth.

    Amazon surprised me. I ordered it last night, they had a Same Day Shipping for like $10, so I did that. Came today. That's fast! I can't wait to hook it up and try it out.

    Like others using Bluetooth adapters, the parked car is not working for me. It does work good for music streaming, but sometimes Siri has trouble hearing me (unless I turn the ventilation system off.). Still, worth it for most of my purposes without going thru the hassle and expense of a stereo retrofit.

    I have Audi with bluetooth builtin. It works very inconsistently for me - sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Today it told me the car was at a place I was at yesterday. This after driving twice today

    You are sent a notification on your lock screen?

    so in order to make this work your car has to have BUILD IN bluetooth. aux to bluetooth adapter isn't going to work cause iOS 10 won't recognize the bluetooth adapter as your car.

    That's how I would want it, why get notification from a million places? How often do you forget where the car is parked. Let the feature work in the background wo fuss, then when you need it, look at the map.

    I wonder if it requires CarPlay.
