But in a big city when you create the event, dozens of people will go to there at the same time. I think that would be useful in suburban areas but not in big cities

Maybe you shouldn't mark available parking places, but just the full ones ;-)

I didn't want a way to research and ask waze a free parking place (because that'll be a carnage for sure, I totally agree).
But just have the possibility to see free spot on the map (like cops or roadworks).

You leave your parking place, you tell waze and everyone driving arround will see a popup "parking".
No research function or whatever :-)

For the moment, I use the "chat function" but i don't know if this is efficient.

Available parking spot

Postby Paff_92 » Thu Aug 08, 2013 10:33 am

Hello,

Today, like everyday, i was looking for a available parking spot near home.

So, why not create a new type of event : Parking spot !
And everytime you take your car (to work or whatever), you can indicate to waze that you're leaving a parking spot. People next to you can know where to park easier and everybody is happy.

In big city, i think it could be a very useful tool, isn't it ?

I think a good way of implementing parking information would be a report screen for "Parking Availablilty", with the options to choose either "Empty", "25% Full", '50% Full', '75% Full' and "100% Full". This will create a report which would relate to a parking lot landmark if you're in one, or it will create a standard report on a road, which would only display in the app if you a navigating to a destination in the area which has parking reports (so the reports don't bother Wazers who aren't parking). My two cents!

I'm very sceptical about this one. Seems a little too real time for Waze. And a little too micro. Can you imagine 1000 people entering a city centre looking for parking and wind gets out about a single parking spot? Carnage would ensue.

I think this is a nice idea in theory but totally infeasible in practise.

How do specialist apps deal with this?

But we know that waze is at least thinking about parking.

The Waze method may or may not include that type of reporting information, based on the details of the patent linked to previously in this thread.
