Remembering where you parked your car at a large shopping mall or airport is a problem drivers regularly run into, especially when many parking areas use an identical lay-out for different areas.

The Maps app in Windows 10 Mobile now includes pre-set Favourite for the location of your car, making it easy to note down where you are leaving.

The feature lets you add a note in case you are parked under roof and also add a photo for even better recall.

At present the feature does not appear to have any automation included, but I assume the next step would be to automatically record your position when you get out of your car.

The update also brings venue maps for many major airports:

  • Airport venue maps showing gates and terminals
  • Save a location to use when Maps can’t find your PC’s location
