surprise! Google maps can send to my 2008 car

I recently bought a 2013 335 (loved the 2008, going with a newer model). For the 2008 the google maps send-to-car feature was unavailable. As BMW says on its website
If you are driving a 2008 X6 produced 4/08 or later or any 2009 and later BMW Assist-equipped BMW (except X3) and have a valid BMW Assist subscription, you will be able to send and receive the destination and phone number in your vehicle through MyInfo.
So I always assumed the car was missing some piece of hardware that would allow receiving the map info.

I haven't sold my 2008 yet, and lo and behold after sending a few addresses to my 2013 (using the same email address for BMW assist that I used before for the 2008) I got into my 2008 to drive it and there they were! So it looks like the 2008 could have received addresses all along.
