Send Google Maps Addresses to Your Car

Google Maps Germany has a new feature: if you have a BMW car that includes a navigation system and you happen to live in Germany, it's easy to send the address of a local business to your car's navigation system.

The "send" link from every Google Maps page will open a dialog that lets you fill your BMW account name and send an address plus some notes to your car. This service is free and it works only for businesses in Germany.

Google explains their partnership with BMW by saying "they're a leading innovator in the automotive space, and they share our vision for a network-connected world". In the web space, BMW's German site was removed from Google last year because it used doorway pages, but it was quickly reincluded.


Here's a video that shows how the whole thing works:
