The navigation in my 2012 X3 does a really poor job in Northern California, specifically getting to common places in San Francisco it will make very odd and clearly sub-optimal routing choices through the city. The Google Send To Car functionality is great, but just using Google directly with a mobile phone in the center console provides for a much better experience -- way better speach recognition, vocalization of place names, maps, and routing. Which is a shame because you can get a ticket in California for holding a phone while you speak instructions to it while driving.
