It stopped working through Chrome, but works fine through Internet Explorer. I banged my head on the keyboard for an hour months ago, and then it finally dawned on me to try a different browser. Worked fine. The link for "send to car" comes up under "send to phone" with some other options.

I work on a PC all day at work, so I like doing it this way. I tried the Connected app a few times. Haven't tried any other way.

I use it with Chrome all the time.

I guess I just never tried it again since it stopped working and I switched to IE

I was playing around with this today, mainly because I think the connected drive app is a bit clunky. When I hit the send to device option in google maps my car didn't show up, so I hit the help button and there is a link there to manually add your car.

If you follow the link below you can manually add your car, it links up to your connected drive username (no password required).

https://www.google.com.au/maps/sendt...ce=tldsi&hl=en

Once I added my car it then showed up in the send to device menu and it seemed to work.

Not sure if this will sort some of the issues people are having.

Also configured it yesterday and it works. Took some time to get it to work. I did the following:
  • Go to the connecteddrive portal and open your account settings
  • Choose a username if you haven't done so already
  • Go to the remote cockpit on the connected drive website and enable both "send to car" options (messages and selected partners)
  • Go to https://www.google.com.au/maps/sendtocar
  • Add a car:
  • - Manufacturer: BMW[/indent]
  • - Accout ID: your username you created in the second step[/indent]
  • - Display name: Choose one[/indent]
  • Go to https://maps.google.com, choose a destination, click "Send to your phone" in the menu on the left, choose "Car" and click on send
  • In your car you should have a message in the connected drive menu with your destination and you can start the navigation

Hope this helps!
