Frequently Asked Questions

Your Angels will automatically detect that you parked and send you a parking ticket alert before street cleaning, alternate side parking or any other parking rules. If your car has Bluetooth, make sure to connect it to the app. Otherwise, make sure to grant your Angels access to your phone sensors.

First, you need to find your car's Bluetooth name in your Phone's Settings> Bluetooth> MY DEVICES. Then, open the SpotAngels app and go to the the Cars section. Select your car, activate the parking detection feature and write the car's Bluetooth name. Et voilà! Next time you are in your car, open the SpotAngels app and you should see a Bluetooth confirmation icon. Please find more details in this article.

SpotAngels has integrations with 4 dongle providers: Automatic, Mojio, Zubie and Vinli. If you have one of these devices, you can link it to the app. Your Angels will then be able to automatically protect you from parking tickets.

SpotAngels builds the most precise parking maps. We map cities spot by spot and gather all the parking regulations associated: street cleaning, alternate side parking, residential parking, meters, no parking zones, no standing zones, handicapped spots... When a regulation is missing or incorrect, you can snap a picture of the parking sign within the app and your Angels will update it.

Your Angels send you a first notification when you park to tell you how long you can stay. However, they won't send you the notification if they do not have parking data at your parking location. If you want to add data at this location, you can snap a picture within the app and your Angels will take care of the rest :)

We built SpotAngels to help drivers with parking. We do our best to provide the most accurate data possible but please be aware that our data may differ from the current on-street regulation. We do not hold any responsibility if you get a parking ticket. So the best practice is to double check if you have a doubt.

We are ourselves users of the app and we know how valuable the battery life of our phones is. We put in a lot of technology and efforts to optimize the battery consumption when you use the app.

Absolutely! The data is anonymized and securely stored. We don't sell your personal data and we will never do. We make money by selling our maps to car companies.

The app covers San Francisco, New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Seattle, Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, San Jose, San Diego, Detroit, Miami, Phoenix, Jacksonville, Indianapolis, Columbus, Atlanta, Portland, Stuttgart, Munich, Hamburg, London and Brussels. We are constantly adding new cities and expanding our coverage within our current cities. If you do not have data in your neighborhood, feel free to send your Angels pictures of parking signs within the app and they will add data within 1 business day.

We plan to launch the Android app anytime soon. In the meantime, you can add your email address to our Android waiting list and we will notify you when the app is live!
