FOSTER CITY, Calif., May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Streetline, Inc. today unveiled a new release of its award-winning 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 in Barcelona.
“Streetline introduced the world’s first parking guidance app in 2010 and has since continued to spark the imagination for how technology can change the way we think about parking,” said Zia Yusuf , president and CEO of Streetline, Inc. “With this latest release of Parker, Streetline again raises the bar for what consumers can expect from parking guidance apps, making it even easier for motorists to locate parking so they can go about spending their time on the more important activities of their day.”
“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.”
