I really hoped that this would work but it doesn't on my 2006 330xi nav. Seems that the bluetooth address book that is on your phone is totally separate from the nav "address book". I save the address as a contact on my phone, then go to "communication" and pull up the A-Z search and can find it there but the only options when I click on it are to "call" or "add numbers". The address is not even recognized. I was hoping that it would see and address there and give me a "navigate to" option which would be sweet! No such luck

I don't have BMW Assist and it's probably not worth the cost in order to use the android app to send to car.

Any other suggestions on how to get around this? Google maps is so easy to do voice search to find an address but then it takes 10 min to enter it into the BMW nav.
