ParkMe Powers Audi, INRIX

Santa Monica-based ParkMe, the developer of parking information apps and databases, has further extended its reach this week, saying that it has inked a deal to supply its information to Audi and traffic information provider Inrix. According to ParkMe, Audi and INRIX have added new, real-time parking information to their navigation systems, by pulling in live, parking data from ParkMe. Financial details of the link were not disclosed. The new system lets drivers automatically navigate to the cheapest and closest parking spots near their destination. ParkMe says it now has data for over 18,000 parking facilities in North America.
