No longer able to send address to BMW iDrive via google

Anyone else having this issue?

Google says message was sent, but iDrive not receiving the message.

Sending via the BMW app still works though.

Yes, the new version of google maps is very annoying. If you go in the upper right corner and revert back to the Classic Maps you can get it back. I complained to Google about this. Not that I think they'll listen to me. The entire right click menu is gone though.

I don't mean I can't find the way to send the address (still using classic google maps) - I mean that once I send the address, it never shows up in iDrive.

I use this all the time and did one yesterday; no issues.

Can you use the BMW Remote to locate your car or remotely flash the headlights? If you can, then the BMW Assist communications is working.

It can take a few minutes for the location to get uploaded to your car, but I assume you are never getting it, right?

Ah. OK. I went through this a few years ago and went around a few times with the BMW people. Not sure what they said the clips finally was but eventually get it ironed out.I assume your account is still active? My account recently ran out and I realized it because my car stopped receiving notifications.

I am also having the same issue. I called BMWNA and they said it was the new IPHONE software I told them I don't have an IPHONE. They instructed me to call BMW assistance so I did they said it was googles error. I went to the dealer and they said they haven't herd of the error. I have two BMWs (X3/328) both 2013 and the same problem with both it worked Monday.

Google is in the process of migrating Send To Car to the new version of maps.

If you attempt to send an address to the car in the old version, a warning will come up about how to make the changes in the new maps and that they are working to get this live soon. It appears we are in a point in time where the PC version of Google maps will not send any addresses to our cars. For the time being, use only the BMW Remote app.

The OP was referring to the convenience of using a PC to get to the Google Maps website, hit a button, send the address to the car.

Both the Android and iPhone ecosystems can send addresses to BMW's very effectively.

I picked up on this thread and while I don't have a 3 series, I have a 2014 X3. I have an iPhone 5, updated IOS7 and the BMW Remote app. How does one send address to Idrive via app?

In Remote app:

Control > Online Search

Type in address. Hit Search.

Tap red flag. On the following pop up screen hit Send To Vehicle.

It can take up to a minute to arrive in your car in the form of an email to iDrive.

I can send it from my android phone via a third party app. Just no BMW apps for Android. I've come up with my own work around.

Wow, didn't realize that BMW didn't port the Remote app for Android, sorry.

I assume this functionality isn't just included when you get a car with Nav. Is there a monthly or annual subscription that you have to pay for?

Its part of BMW assist which I believe is included for 3 years I think?

Got a new 5s and the app keeps crashing when you use the GMaps Lookup feature in the app. So annoying.

Is no-one else having the issue I'm seeing with v2.6 (latest) of the BMW Remote app?

When I search for something like Bauhaus Coffee the results show 50 destinations i.e. anything to do with coffee in the area, making it useless. My workaround is to do the search on Google Maps app, then copy/paste the full address into the BMW remote App to send to the car's Nav. The older version of BMW Remote didn't have this problem.

No longer able to send address to BMW iDrive via google

I'm having both problems
1. "Send to vehicle" appears to work from app, but never received by car
2. Google search shows excessive "pins" on map even though search was for exact name of restaurant

Both problems coincide with "upgrade" to latest Apple iOS (and latest BMW Remote app)

Hope they're fixed soon.

I am on ios7 (on an iPhone 4s) and BMW Remote v2.6.

'Send to vehicle' is working fine for me.

I have the same problem with Google Search within BMW Remote App, workaround using Google Maps as I posted above.

Just tried it with the "Send to phone" app on my android and my car isn't getting it either. Must be on Google's end.

There us an official BMW Android app. Just not in the US. But I uploaded it and it works fine.
