Send Destinations to Your Car Via Google Maps


Over in Germany, Google Maps users are getting a chance to test some new technology that will hopefully soon make its way into other parts of the World. Imagine this. You are searching Google Maps for a restaurant near the city you will be traveling to. Rather than writing down the address and then loading it in your car, you send the address from Google Maps directly to the GPS in your car.

This is now possible through a partnership between Google and BMW and works through the BMW Assist program.

  1. wow. this is incredible. Now I just need to get my BMW and I’ll be set.

    seriously though, I wonder if this might be soon available with the phone/gps systems, or perhaps be sending the message (with google maps address) to your phone, and then connecting the phone to your portable or in dash PND.

  2. We will soon see something like this on the upcoming GPS devices by Dash. The Dash GPS has wifi, and if the car in your garage can get your wifi signal, then you can sit in your house and send routes/destinations to your GPS in your car from you house.
