    Is there something I need to turn on for car parked notification to work? I'm running public beta with 6S.

    Does your car have a Bluetooth radio?

    Yeah I have this On too. Not sure maybe a bug, it may show up next time. The notification pops up on main screen right? I don't have to swipe right to see widgets?

    Seems you also need to have frequent locations activated in location services. When I turned it on it worked, off - not working.

    I haven't noticed the notifications since B1. However it is marked on Maps and I can click on it. Have you looked in Maps at the spot where your car is parked to see if it is marked?

    I haven't received any notifications (only have been running the public beta 1 so far). HOWEVER, I just went to Maps as suggested and see my parked car marked on the map.

    I stopped receiving the notifications (which I'm fine with), but it actively still stores where I parked.

    I checked again today I don't see parked car in notification or in the map. Definitely not working for me.

    Mine was working perfectly ok B1 but stopped with B2. If it isn't working and you followed the previous steps you may need to wait Til B3

    I'm having the same issue. Worked perfectly in beta 1 and up to Thursday on beta 2. Then it's been intermittent since then.

    Must be a bug.

    Doesn't work for me. I have a Dodge Caravan with uConnect. Enabled everything that everyone mentioned here and didn't work. Public Beta on my phone.

    Went back to iOS 9. Not stable to use daily and when I try to open apps folder it starts to wiggle as if I triggered app delete and make some app icons disappeared. I will wait for final release.

    I wonder if it realizes you park the same place every day it realizes you probably dont need it. It popped up for me the otehr day at the store but it doesnt at home or work anymore (which im fine with)

    No, because mine shows up every time I have checked at home, work and gym.

    I think this feature needs some work. For example, how does it know a bluetooth device is your car? I don't have built-in bluetooth in my car but use an adapter that plugs into the AUX of my head unit. This feature doesn't work with it. Perhaps it only recognises certain bluetooth device names or addresses as car bluetooth. Would be better if you could tap on a bluetooth device in settings and set a "this device is my car" setting.

    This is actually a good suggestion and you should file that as a Enhancement request with Apple.

    It doesn't seem to be entirely tied to Bluetooth in all cases, however. I use CarPlay via a USB cable in my car. When I do this, I get an explicit notification that Bluetooth is disconnected at the start of my drive. However, when I end my drive and disconnect my phone, Maps is aware of my parking location. But I haven't gotten the notification about that in several days.

    Sounds like they're playing around with this stuff on the server side of things.

    I have submitted this as an enhancement. It could also be useful for reminders such as "when I leave my car" etc if it "knows" what your car is.
