How to locate your parked vehicle with MyLincoln Mobile

Searching a crowded parking lot for your vehicle can be a hassle. The updated MyLincoln Mobile application can help you remember where your car is parked and remind you to walk back to the meter and feed it on time. The app’s Locator feature marks your parking spot on a map. For added convenience, Lincoln vehicles with Reserve Package (and available modem) offer an optimized locator that automatically shows the last known parked location. You can also use the app’s Parking Timer feature to receive an alert when you need to move your vehicle. To learn about the full range of premium services that this app puts at your fingertips, see the MyLincoln Mobile Overview. To start using MyLincoln Mobile’s Locator feature, follow the steps below.

Note: MyLincoln Mobile app, compatible on select smartphone platforms, is available through a free download. The available embedded modem is included on Reserve Equipment group. Services included for 4 years. Text and data rates apply to usage. Currently available on all 2017 vehicles, the 2015 MKC and MKZ, and the 2016 MKC, MKX, and MKZ.
