Default [Q] Parking Locations Card

I have yet to see a parking location card pop up to remind me where I park. I have Google Now version 3.4. Location reporting is on. I've set transportation mode to Driving. Is this service not available in Canada?

Mods: Sorry if this is not appropriate here but I've done a search and really don't know where to ask this question. Move it if you need to. Thanks.

I thought you had to tell google after your parked to remind you where you parked not sure though

I think it's a 'phased' roll-out. My wife's had this feature for a couple of weeks, mine just magically turned on yesterday without me doing anything or changing any settings. My wife always gets the cool features before I do, for some reason, and she couldn't really care less

It's just appeared for me since yesterday. I never did anything to activate it, the card just appears with a mini-map

I was hoping that I would see it today, since two of you said it showed up yesterday. Nothng still. I guess it's not a big deal. I wouldn't really use it very often but was just wondering why I don't see it.

Ive had it for about a week. Its automatic. Its kinda annoying actually because now Google Search uses a lot more battery

I've seen it three times but it certainly doesn't work every day for me. I can see it out of the window so I should manage to find it today

I feel ya bro...

On the other hand.. when I was on holidays in London I had a lot more cool suggestions and cards showing up comparing to home (Portugal)... but when I travel sometimes I get pictures of the places nearby, often with my own pictures LOL

DONATE TO ME
Located in Canada, I get it every time I park my car, except at home (seems pretty obvious now that I think about it). I don't think I did anything special other than to say 'yes, tell me where I parked', and even then, I don't specifically remember even doing that.
