It is of course easier to do this via the Google “send to car” function, but it might be convenient of you want to upload multiple destinations in one shot.

If that does not work I will try the "Asia Only" code that you suggest.

Yes, but with a single destination point, and NAVI_TRIP_IMPORT, you are still using Google Maps for Routing.

The Google Send-To-Car, and NAVI_DEST_IMPORT would instead use the built in BMW Navigation for Routing. Since Google Send-To-Car requires a BMW Assist account, many users can not use it, so I was thinking instead they could maybe use NAVI_DEST_IMPORT in its place, that is if it is possible for it to work on non-Asian vehicles despite what it says.
