BMW My Remote work with iOS6?? (esp google local search..)`

Has anyone tried using the BMW My Remote ap after upgrading to iOS6?

I'm curious if the Google Local Search feature still works, since it appears to use the native Google Maps function of iOS5 and earlier.... now that it's Apple Maps, will it even work?

I use this feature all the time because manually entering a nav destination with the idrive controller is way slower than just finding it in Google Local Search with the My Remote app and using "Send to Vehicle"

This is the only thing holding me up from updating to iOS6. I really don't want to lose this functionality.

Help!

I can also can confirm that "google local search" and "send to car" work on the bmw remote app on iOS 6. It took about ten minutes for it to show up on iDrive but it worked.

So when you use "Google local search" on your iphone, are the maps google maps or apple maps?

Does this app work on my 2010 E90 M 335i with iDrive? I downloaded it but don't see my car as an option.
