Thanks FrogmanF30.

I expected that since you are in the US. Our cars do not have the "trip import" function on by default. In most of Europe (I think) and for example in Australia, this function is activated.

I think in some Asian countries (please let me know otherwise), maybe they cannot do the "Google Send to the car" by default.

Have you tried to generate a KML file with only one point and then import that via the "trip import" feature? If not I will try this tonight. In addition to generating trips via Google Maps, it would be useful to have multiple destinations in an USB that can be easily imported to the car.

If that does not work then we should try (as Shawn suggests) the "Asia only" destination code and see if another import menu item shows up.
