I just found out that send to car no longer works from Google Maps. This is is using the classic version of maps. I'll test a few more times and then make the suggested call toBMW Assist. I'm puzzled about what they can do to fix it since it seems mostly likely to be due to a change made by Google. But since some say here that worked I'll give it a try.

its still not working. I already called BMW, they said its 90% an issue on Google servers. not sure why it works for some people and not all....probably a server cluster issue.

Mine actually started working again yesterday. When I had called BMW Assist a few days ago, they said it was a known issue and that they had no ETA on when it would be fixed. Looks like they fixed something (for me at least).

Mine never actually stopped working oddly enough...though it may have something to do with using the "Send to car" app on Android that I used to send information from the maps app.

Mine had stopped working from both Google Maps on the computer and Send to Car on my Android phone.

Anyone still having issues? I haven't been able to send from Gmaps classic or from my phone for about a week.

Hi,

Just tried to send a location from:
* my Windows PC to my car, using Google Maps (I have not installed the latest version of Google Maps)
* my Samsung S4, using Send to Car App

Both were successfully received by the car.

I had the same problem you are encountering earlier and called BMW Assist (888 333-6118) and after a day or so, they fixed the problem on their end

Hope that helps

Same here, the "classic" web-based PC version of Google Maps still has the Send To Car feature and it's working again after a two-week outage.

The BMW Remote App for iPhone has always worked for me, no issues there. I just prefer to use Google Maps on the PC as it's easier.

I personally don't like the "new" Google maps and have reverted to the "classic" version on each of my PCs. That said, in the past, a location sent to "my bmw" appeared in my message list almost instantaneous ... well as fast as it took to get out to my car. But this weekend there was an overnight delay. Maybe it was the BMW Assist issue noted earlier in this thread. I'll have to see if it persists. I may have to use the "Send to car" app on my Android phone as long as that isn't a problem for me personally.

Why would it be a problem? It's a super easy app to install and use.

my car did not receive any locations from the "send to car" android app.

in regards to classic vs new.........i dont like the new one either.

sounds like things are shaping up in regards to the connections to the car....ill test again tonight. Im really upset that this stopped working, this was one of my favorite features

Some people may experience this if they have not updated the app on their smart phone. BMW did a new app BMW USA iPhone and android and if you didn't go to the new app your google maps sending won't work.

The change over was in February 2014.

Just a note.... to do this part you need a $4 app called "send to car". It's really quite slick.

That app is also available on Google Play for Android and integrates quite well with Maps

Is there a link? That took me to an app called BMW Roadside.

Got it. Can a second BMW be added when I get it or will it replace the first one?

It appears you can only enter one BMWAssist account, so I don't know what you would do if you had a second BMW.

Under settings it does say vehicles. Below that if you touch the email address it asks logout.

I would assume you could logout of one profile and setup another and then switch between vehicles.

This is speculation as without another bmw of my own, I can't test it.

Hope this helps.
