Send To Car from the new Google Maps?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Google Updated their maps, Does anyone know how to send an address to the car via the web from google maps? It seems like the function disappeared.

I used it all the time, the iPhone BMW app works most of the time, but not as well as it once did on send to car from google maps.

Am I missing something?

i switch to classic view with the help icon in the bottom right hand corner every time i want to send to car or i use the send to car on google maps from my mobile device.

when it asks "why switch back" or whatever question it is i tell them about it. hopefully they'll add it to the new maps soon.

no prob, glad it helped.

i actually like the new maps better now that i'm use to it but send to car is so necessary imo that i'm shocked it wasn't one of the first things included. i hope they get it sorted soon.
