If I have two BMW vehicles, with my wife driving one, how do we make sure that Google Maps sends directions to the proper car?

Does it have something to do with giving each car an individual name with Google or itself, and/but to complicate matters, I had given my previous car to my wife, and I am thinking that Google just keeps on doing its "thing."

If that is the case, how do I break the connection between my Email address or other identifier and the previous car that I no longer drive, and establish it with the new one?

If it's based on an Email address, will it continue to associate it with the "old" or previous car?

This may have been posted already, and, if so, I apologize.

At the same time, however, I wish to thank all who respond.

Richard

I would guess that your email address is associated with your car. And I would also assume that BMW assist is what performs that association. I would say call them (or just press that button next to the visor).

Yes, Google just sends it via email to the address associated with your car via BMW Assist. You should be able to get them to associate your email to your new car and your wife's to the one you passed on to her.
