Pioneer AppRadio users can now directly access BestParking's app from the convenience of their in-vehicle display to quickly search for the cheapest and most convenient parking facilities throughout North America.

"Parking is a universal challenge everyone can relate to," said Benjamin Sann, Founder and CEO of "The compatibility of our app with Pioneer's App Mode headunits brings the app into its natural environment - in the car. We are thrilled Pioneer users will be able to access all of BestParking's features on the larger displays of their headunits."

The BestParking app overlays the prices of parking locations directly on a map, thus making it easy to choose the most economical location. In addition, the app includes numerous attributes such as hours of operation, indoor/outdoor, self-park/valet, phone numbers, height restrictions, oversize-vehicle fees, and payment options.

To access the app from the display of a Pioneer Advanced App Mode receiver, a compatible iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S must be connected via a USB interface cable. BestParking charges a one-time in-app purchase fee of $2.99 for the compatibility.
