Send Destination To Sat Nav


I know that via 'BMW Routes' I can construct a route with a starting point and a destination, and then send that to the car. What I want to do is simply to send a destination to the car.

I know that in older versions of Google Maps it was possible to do this, but for some reason it has been withdrawn from newer versions. I also have read that it is still possible to call up the older version of Google and do such things. I have not found this possible.

Anyone know how to do this?

It is still possible with google maps. Put in a location in the maps search bar. Then select "send to your phone" below it. Then select "car" from the window that pops up.
You can't do this on you're mobile device, only a desktop/laptop

I tried adding my car at the Google add car site but my car never shows up when I click send to phone. I verified with BMW that my account ID is my email address. Any idea how to get it to recognize my car in google maps send to phone (that is make my car show up as a place to send the directions to when I click Send the Phone from Google maps.)?
