Dubai Mall has its own app that helps drivers find their car in its massive parking lot.

Once downloaded, users just need to head to ‘Find Vehicle’ which is located under ‘Parking’.

Here, they enter their registration number in order for the app to locate the vehicle.

Once it’s been located, the app then tells you exactly which row and space your vehicle is parked in.

Then it even directs you straight to it.

Sounds neat, huh?

But, what do you do if you’ve left your phone in the car?

Dubai Mall has that base covered too, because it has tablets located in its parking lot that use a similar system.

Like the app, all the user has to do is enter their license plate number.

Then thanks to a network of scanners, the system will show them exactly where they left their car.
