From the Google maps site..

What if I don't want my BMW to receive destinations from Google Maps?
Yes, Google MyInfo can be disabled for your BMW*. Disabling MyInfo will prevent destinations from being transferred to your BMW, but will still allow the use of all other BMW Assist services.

Make sure Myinfo is selected on!

Between this and the tires, ever think someone's trying to tell you something? Just sayin.

Had the same problem, it seemed my old 2008 was the issue. Most BMW assist people don't have a clue on how to solve. I would demand them to open a ticket so back office Corp handles the issue. Once I did that a few days it worked. Love the feature

google maps functionality all set, as you can see, this is from almost a month ago. The tires i will put on goodyear, not BMW's fault they suck.

What's your problem quack? still upset about the Pats getting their season ended by the Jets?

Ouch! That's going to leave a mark! By chance, have you tried using the button on the overhead console and contact BMW that way? I also had a E60 and setup the new account this way. Double check to see if the car VIN and email address registered to your account is correct. Good luck!

i called the BMW assist number from outside the car (1-888-333-6118) and they fixed it in a jiffy.

as for the jets, i'm a giant fan, but i was rooting hard for them to destroy pretty Tom's MVP season. that was my favorite game of the playoffs.. well, packers beating the eagles was pretty therapeutic too!

Too funny, I'm also a die hard Giants fan. Little Tom looked a little disheveled and frustrated as he did when the Giants D knocked him down a few times during our last Superbowl win against the Pats. The key to Brady is getting to him. I give more credit to the Pat's offensive line for protecting him and giving him the MVP year he had this past season.

Why do you folks in fly-over country always assume we like Brady? Personally, I'm much more of a Wes Welker fan. He has great feet.

Anyway, the 2012 season is going to be a huge anticlimax, now that Rex Blowhard has guaranteed the Jets repeat as Super Bowl Champions. Guess I need to find a new sport to watch - maybe one where pretty boy athletes have their GF's feed them popcorn on national TV?

You don't get more pretty boy than Tom Brady.

I finally got this fixed in my 535 x drive. Had to bring it in to the dealership for a software update and I-drive reset. Works well now.

Hope we can all get this working. Sounds like using Google Maps on iPhone gives better routes than the built-in Nav system huh?
