Transferring addresses from Google Maps into F30 BMW Assist

Cool, but only a little.

From what I can tell you can only transfer an address from Google to "Messages" in the car, where they appear as an unalphabetized list of messages. You cannot transfer any of these addresses to the stored contacts in the nav system.

So if you want to spend a few hours at the computer at home to enter your favorite addresses, you have to reenter them again in the car to store them as contacts. Let me know if you think I'm missing something, but is this nuts or what?

Coupled with the inability of BMW to handle iPhone messages and emails, I'm heavily unimpressed with their mobile services.
