Navigation services may help you get from Point A to Point B, but really, that’s only half the battle. It’s not just about getting to Point B — it’s about finding a place to park once you’ve arrived.

But now, thanks to a new partnership between Parkopedia and Apple Maps, you’ll be able to discover “key information about parking garages and [parking] lots around the world.” Parkopedia’s more than 40 million listed parking spots means that your days for hunting endlessly for a place in which to rest your weary wheels may finally be drawing to an end.

“We’re excited to deliver detailed information on more than 40 million parking spaces in 75 countries to Apple Maps customers. This is a very important milestone for Parkopedia,” said Parkopedia’s head of marketing, Christina Onesirosan Martinez. “Our combined footprint in the consumer and automotive space is huge and this opens the doors to delivering a world of innovative solutions.”

In addition to all that data on parking spaces in your local area, Apple Maps users will also be able to access Parkopedia’s website and iOS app in order to gain further insights as to where you might leave your car. From pricing to user reviews to real-time space availability, you’ll be able to plan ahead for your parking needs. And best of all, you’ll be able to make parking reservations so that you know there will be a spot awaiting your arrival.

Oh, and another thing — Parkopedia will also tell you where you can plug in your electric vehicle. You know, in case that’s an issue.

“The ability to provide parking services to Apple Maps users around the world helps us reach millions of drivers who want to use technology to arrive at their destinations efficiently and on time,” said Parkopedia’s CEO Eugene Tsyrklevich. So the next time you’re going somewhere brand new, hopefully you won’t have to budget in an extra hour of travel time just to go parking lot hunting.
