Address from phone

My car (F32 440ix) is new and there is one thing I have not been able to figure out in the navigation. I have a mountain cabin in a remote location. The town is listed, but the street (the biggest one in town) is not listed, even though others are so I cannot enter an address. I thought I could use the address from the contact in the phone, but I don't seem to be able to set a phone contact's address as a destination. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance

The system will not use addresses from the phone contacts directly because the format is different than what the navigation requires.

To use an address from a phone contact you first have to save that contact to the hard drive in the car - then edit the contact and add the address.

BUT - if the navigation map does not now have that street in it's data records then it will not be able to recognize it when you try to put it in.

Instead you could try to use the GPS coordinates.

Use the interactive map to select the destination.
