I used to be able to send nav data to the car from my computer. Don't think I tried my phone.

Anyway, I tried to do it recently and because I let my bMW assist expire, I no longer can.

The reason toothpaste works great is that it has an abrasive in it. My experience with any abrasive is that once you start using it, you must continue. Avoid abrasives as long as possible.

I don't need any extra force to close it. I can simply drop it from 6" and it closes fine. If I drop it from higher it sounds like I'm slamming it shut. It shuts too easy.........that's the issue.
