G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

Is there a way to save your current location as "destination" for later

I'm trying to find out if there is a way to save a current location as a destination so that it can then be pulled up later from the stored "destinations" memory. On my old E93 Navigation, there was a menu option to "save current position", but I don't see anything similar on the G30 nav. Thanks

I think if you have the map displayed and press down on the round controller it will prompt you save the present position. I did that to me while driving today.

You may need to go to the interactive map first and then press the controller for those options. I'll try it on my way to work later. The interactive map is chosen by clicking the last (bottom) icon on the left panel of the main nav view, the round circle one.

UPDATE: I tried it this morning. With Nav guidance not engaged, pressing the iDrive controller on the main map view does bring up "Save Location". You can also do this in the Interactive map, as I mentioned above.

Hey if you have the destination inputted within Navi, then hold down on one of the numerical memory buttons "1 2 3 4..." it will save it.
