Streetline, Inc., unveiled a new release of its parking guidance application, Parker by Streetline. Parker 4.0 is now available for the iPhone and features a clean, updated design; an easy-to-use side panel menu; and one-click turn-by-turn voice navigation—further enhancing the hands-free capabilities of the app.

Parker displays open on-street parking in real time, as well as available parking at garages and nearby parking lots, by tapping data from Streetline's real-time sensor network in more than 35 locations globally and parking garage and lot data for more than 23,000 off-street locations. Since the app was first introduced in December 2010, Parker by Streetline has recorded more than 100 million parking "events" and was recently named Best Mobile Innovation for 'Smart Cities' at the 2013 Mobile World Congress inBarcelona.

"With Parker, our goal was to go beyond just helping drivers locate a parking space; we want them to find the right space," added Vito Salvaggio, Senior Vice President, Product Management of Streetline, Inc. "Parker allows users to search by parking type - metered space, garage/lot, ADA accessible, or electric vehicle charging stations. The app shows available parking relative to your current location and also lets motorists filter spots by price."

Some of the key features of Parker 4.0 include:

  • Real-time information in select areas to guide consumers to open and available parking spaces; Parker updates automatically when a car is parked or leaves;
  • Ability to toggle between availability and price, including real-time updates as prices are changed or updated;
  • Easy access to rates, hours, and time limits for metered, on-street, and garage/lot parking;
  • Side panel navigation gives user access to filters, price toggle, places and satellite view;
  • Search field with enhanced ability to find parking by address or points of interest (e.g., coffee, gas station);
  • Enhanced filters allowing users to set criteria, such as EV charging stations, ADA spaces, on-street or garages/lots only, or specific payment options (coins, credit card, mobile payments);
  • Park function allows user to note where a car is parked (and later find guidance back to the car), set reminders, and other options including mobile payment (where available);
  • Ability to select display preference to show the number of available spaces or price;
  • One-click access to turn-by-turn voice navigation that guides you to available parking
