When you leave the vehicle, iOS 11 will find your parked car by remembering the location – as long as it wasn’t parked at the home address. The thing is, the iPhone shows a notification that informs you that the Maps app for iOS has dropped a pin where the car was parked. The notification can be tapped for more information.

When the notification that tells you about the parked car is tapped, you get to see a live map that demonstrates where the vehicle is. From there, you can add a text note or a custom image if you want more clues to remember the location. For example, if there was a Pepsi billboard nearby the parking location, you can add a photo of Pepsi bottle and use it as a hint to get to your parked car.
