    I know that the parking widget thing is linked up to the Bluetooth but can anyone tell me if it works when you have just like a Bluetooth speaker phone in your car because your car is too old to actually pair to anything? LOL Will it drop the pin when you Turn your Bluetooth speakerphone off or does it only work with newer cars that you can actually pair your phone to?

    I have a Bluetooth OBDII reader which pairs up every time I get in the car and I have no such functionality.

    I with there was a way to get my phone to see that connection as "my car", but I don't think there is.

    I have the same issue ..... I have a bluetooth/aux adapter fitted that allows hands-free and music streaming, and this "you parked your car here" thing never happens. Surely if you were able to designate a bluetooth device as "your car", then it could work with anything? Tap the (i) next to my bluetooth adapter and tick a "this device is in my car" option. Sorted.

    I don't know it determines this but I've seen some suggestion that it only works for a known list of Bluetooth access point names i.e. Sync for Ford. That seems like an odd implementation choice to me if it's true since it's an ongoing maintenance battle Apple can never win. I suspect it's more like "Bluetooth AP offers phone and Bluetooth audio and moves" but it's all just guesses unless Apple says how it works
