Did you register an email address yet with BMW? Either over the phone or with your dealership? Needs a valid email address associated with BMW in order for the google maps to car feature to work.

Everything works on mine, just like my other cars, I can send from Google on the app, tried twice,... I think BMW assist doesn't know what they are talking about. I still have a couple cars in my app that I haven't owned in years and they have tried to fix it several times. I don't think they understand their own systems.

when i try to send the google maps to my car via send to car email...using firefox and IE 10 both give me this message "
Sorry, we were unable to send this message at this time. Please visit the help page."
all my connected stuff in the car works, news, weather, google search, wiki..everything except the one feature i really give crap abt. lol

I don't see how you can send to car using the google maps iPhone app. Where is that located? On my desktop using Firefox or IE there is a "more" link then "send" to car. I don't see that on iPhone app

From the Remote app, select "control" along the bottom, then "Google Local Search" from the next page. Search your location, select the pin, then you'll see "Send to Vehicle" at the bottom of the info screen that appears.

You need to install the "BMW Remote" application from the app store.
