How to track your parked car even without iOS 10 or a compatible head unit

A new feature that comes baked into iOS 10 shows you where you last parked your car right in the Maps app. On the other hand, it requires you to both have the latest version of iOS installed and to have a compatible head unit in your car, either with Bluetooth or CarPlay capability.

Since not everyone has an interest in updating, nor does everyone have a compatible head unit in their car, there is an alternative way to see where you parked your car right from your iPhone. All you’re going to need is a specialized 12v iPhone charger for your car and a free App Store app.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to disable requests for iOS updates on your iPhone or iPad. This trick will also remove the nagging badge on the Settings app.
