This works well except when you really need to get in the car and know which direction you are heading in without waiting to speak with BMW Assist and have the address "looked up" and then downloaded. In such cases, I find it much faster to use Send to Car.

No, but keep in mind the system is typically using actual traffic reports and Inrix predictive data in addition to posted speeds and road type when calculating arrival time.
