When you share the location to the BMW Connected app, that app can then send the location down to the car's nav system. In the car, you then just press the iDrive controller and it starts your "trip" (nav session) right away...

Not sure why you'd need to "Send directions" when the car does that itself?

Because on Google Maps its fun and easy to plot different routes that most nav systems (incl bmws) wont let you do or would take far too long to do. For example, like I did today through some back roads and canyons not far from where I live. Its super quick to do this on Google Maps so it would be cool to send not just the destination to the car but also your carefully plotted route.

Ahhh, I see what you mean now. I know there's a way to import routes via USB, I wonder if that format is documented / open and could possibly be handled that way...

Just a quick question about this......

This is from the Google (Add Car) web page
Add your car

Go to google.com/maps/sendtocar.
In the top right, click Sign in and enter your account information.
Click Add car or GPS device.
Choose your car manufacturer and type in your account ID. To find your ID, sign in to your car manufacturer’s website.
Optional: To find your car easily in the future, add a name for your car.
Click OK. To add another car, click Add another car or GPS device.

What is the account ID? "account ID. To find your ID, sign in to your car manufacturer’s website."

Pretty sure the account ID is the end of your VIN that is shown in the ConnectedDrive app and on the website after you sign in.

Waze w/ Apple CarPlay?

Are you using IOS 12 Beta and have Waze working on CarPlay?

I am really liking Waze but have been unsuccessful in getting it working on my 18 M2.

Not available even in regular beta yet. Won't hit open beta (if there is one) until iOS 12 ships.

It will be nice because Apple Maps sucks compared to Waze or Google.

What does "unsuccessful" mean? I use Waze, but have the sound/alerts for it turned off. There are times when I would like it on, but when I do, the iDrive seems to freak out to the point the system doesn't work and I have to reset the iDrive and turn the sound/alerts off on Waze. I have a MY18, too.

So you're just using the Bluetooth audio gotcha.

Once iOS 12 goes live will be able to load it on our screen and choose between Waze or Google maps as our primary full map.

Before we'll be able to do that there will be an update from Google/Waze/etc that needs to be released as well. But then the world will be a better place!

I just switched from ApplePlay to straight bluetooth after getting annoyed with the car's behavior when using Waze. This is great news!

Did you read the thread? Not trying to be butt, but that's exactly the question that was asked and answered, and clarified after.

We all make them - no worries! You all set now? Our iOS 12 chant starts next week, quickly followed by a Waze banshee yell.

Thanks. I am new to the forum and using this app, honestly I do not find as easy to navigate as other forums (my little rant)

Ha ha as an ios user I look forward to the rant! Will it be in a separate thread?
