Finding a parking place and the change to fund a meter can be daily frustrations for a driver. Fortunately, there are some new high-tech solutions to ease that frustration. Smart parking meters allow you to pay for your meter with your phone, and a new cell phone app will even help you find an open space.

iPhone users in Los Angeles, Calif., can use a new app to locate that perfect parking spot. The app, Parker, will show the user where metered spaces are available in town, how much the spaces cost and their time limitations. The app costs $1.99, and is not available for Android phone users, but should be soon.
