Parking location sharing/external apps

Apps such as Yelp and Find My Friends let you take a location displayed on the map inside the app and open that location in the system's Maps app. 

It would be great to be able to tap on the label that shows where my car is parked and open it in Apple maps to, for example, pull up walking directions to the car, and to be able to open the standard system Share dialog to send parking locations to friends.

Thanks for the idea - we are constantly reviewing feature requests from customers.

Walking directions, now that they are readily available in the Maps app, to the parking location would be a very logical and functional addition to the app.

There is a share button for the current location of the car. But, The only options I have are Messages, Mail, and FaceBook(?). I would like to be able to share this location with any mapping app that supports it.

This is a great point that deserves it's own "Idea" topic so it doesn't get lost since the topic this reply was posted in is already marked as "implemented". Please reference the new topic here: Open your parking location in map app of choice
