Go to "Control" section located on bottom of app and choose "Google Local Search".
Once you've found your destination on the map just choose option to "send to vehicle" once you've clicked on the pin and display the pin detail screen.
In the iDrive menu go to "ConnectedDrive" and select the "messages" option. You will then be able to set the nav destination to your desired location.
(note: this part is from memory, so I may have forgotten a step)
