Q. I have updated parking availability, it is still not showing this information on the map.
A. It is possible that the information you have provided has been overwritten by parking information provided by somebody else, or more probably directly from the parking operator itself. Thank you for helping, please continue to do so, this is a rare case.
Q. I forgot to start the meter on time. How can I get the correct charge?
A. No problem just change the meter start time to when you think you parked the car by bringing up the blue panel to change the meter start time (by touching the grey meter start time display in the top left corner of the meter page). Note you cannot change this while the meter is running.
Q. The calculated parking fee is incorrect. What do i do?
A. Sometimes parking operators have different methods of calculation over time limits, for instance if the day fare ends at 20:00 hours and your park your car at 7:50 for 30 mins @ 300 yen per half hour, you can either be charged for 10 minute day charge and 20 minute night charge intervals or 30 minutes day charge. We are yet to collate information on this difference in pricing methodology across all operators. Please pay the operator their charge, we hope to be in sync soon.
If the fare is wildly off, please drop us a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, we would love to know and rectify this.
Q. My app keeps crashing.
A. We are very sorry to hear this, please drop us a mail email@example.com, be sure to list your phone type and model. If possible let us know the action you think caused it to crash, the more information you provide, the easier it is for us to pin down the problem.
