ATLANTA -- A recent study says we waste fifty hours a year looking for parking in Atlanta.

For some, that's not the problem. It's finding your parked car after your day of shopping or work.

Commuter Dude Jerry Carnes tested the WAZE app, that can help direct you back to your parked car.

All you have to do is open the WAZE app to get to your destination. Turn it off after you've parked your car. When you've finished shopping at the mall, activate the WAZE app again. You'll see a large blue dot representing your car. A smaller blue dot will show your direction of travel and guide you to your car.

It will not guide you back to an exact parking spot but will get your close enough to find your car.


Commuter Dude had great success at a shopping center and mall but had a bit of trouble trying to find his car in a parking deck.
