Santa Monica-based Parking In Motion, the newly funded and launched startup developing mobile applications to help drivers find parking spots, said Friday that it has linked with an industry group called the National Parking Association. According to the two, the deal will allow members of the NPA enter their parking information into Parking In Motion's database. Financial details of the alliance were not disclosed. Parking In Motion is headed by Sam Friedman, and recently announced a round of funding from IDG Ventures and Fontinalis Partners.
