HERE adds 400 indoor parking garages for end-to-end navigation and Electric Vehicle (EV) driving convenience
- HERE adds more than 400 indoor parking garages across Europe and North America to its indoor map through partnerships with APCOA and Propark Mobility.
- HERE map displays indoor EV charging stations for seamless park and charge guidance.
- Parking operators can now surface detailed indoor maps of their garages in HERE products and services for global automotive industry and beyond.
CES 2022 – HERE Technologies, the leading location data and technology platform, has partnered globally with APCOA and Propark Mobility to add over 400 indoor parking garages to its indoor map. Coverage expansion has started in North America with Propark Mobility, one of the largest privately-owned parking companies in North America.
The indoor maps from HERE include key elements of parking garages – individual parking spaces, lanes, ramps and pedestrian walkways. HERE provides integrated routing for vehicles and pedestrians, with parking garage entrances and exits seamlessly connected to the HERE outdoor street map. This enables end-to-end routing experiences that go beyond the curbside and opens new possibilities for Automated Valet Parking (AVP) experiences. Additionally, EV drivers will be able to identify parking spaces on the maps where they can charge their vehicles for maximum convenience.
“Most navigation systems today provide guidance that ends at the curbside. With our new indoor maps, we are helping changing that. Contextual guidance can now continue all the way to individual parking spaces inside garages. Once parked, our pedestrian routing capabilities provide detailed guidance to the final destination,” said Victor van Dinten, Head of Indoor Parking & Charging at HERE Technologies.
“Since we started working together, we’ve been continually impressed by HERE’s capability to create an ecosystem of experts to drive innovation,” said Frank van der Sant, Chief Commercial Officer at APCOA. “We’re delighted to be joining forces with HERE to make navigation an end-to-end user experience, which now includes indoor parking.”
“HERE’s strong automotive presence and detailed indoor parking maps open up new possibilities for our portfolio of premium parking services,” said John Schmid, CEO and Chairman at Propark Mobility. “At Propark we strive to offer drivers a world-class parking experience. Through our partnership with HERE, we are now able to surface our garages in HERE’s automotive solutions, helping us provide a seamless service for millions of drivers across the United States.”

HERE and INRIX build end-to-end parking ecosystem
INRIX becomes the first parking information provider to distribute data to and through multiple HERE channels
Amsterdam, The Netherlands – September 15, 2020 – HERE Technologies, the leading location data and platform company, today announced that INRIX, a leader in connected car services and mobility analytics, will partner to offer a complete parking solution that includes on-street and off-street parking availability, dynamic rates and indoor mapping to HERE automotive customers.
HERE Parking, a connected vehicle service available around the world which makes finding a spot faster and easier, will leverage INRIX for static and dynamic, on-street parking data in more than 1,100 cities (65 countries) and off-street parking data in more than 20,000 cities (150 countries). The combination of INRIX data and HERE location services can navigate the driver to an available spot inside a parking garage, seamlessly transition to a companion mobile app for continued guidance inside a building like an airport or shopping mall, then return the driver to their car with a convenient find-my-car feature. For electric vehicles (EV), drivers will be mapped to the right parking spot with the appropriate charging capabilities.
HERE and INRIX also plan to collaborate around new, innovative parking solutions for automotive customers and beyond. Additionally, INRIX will leverage the HERE Marketplace to further monetize their traffic analytics data sets.

The combined reach of our innovation, coverage and expertise will help drivers around the world find parking smarter and faster,” said Bryan Mistele, president and CEO of INRIX.
By coupling the learned behaviors of HERE Parking like price versus walking distance with INRIX’s real-time data, analytics and coverage, the new data available via HERE Marketplace will provide leading global coverage and information while guiding drivers to on-street spaces with the highest probability of being available.
“As we continue to build a robust end-to-end ecosystem of connected car solutions on the HERE platform, we see this as a natural first step towards a gateway for in-car commerce,” said Edzard Overbeek, CEO of HERE Technologies. “Our HERE Parking team continue to push the product forward with speed, welcoming co-innovation from our partners at INRIX and backed by the go-to-market approach HERE is known for.”
