new option with idrive and iphone?

I hope I posted this in the correct area. Have a 2008 335 with idrive and bluetooth. I recently had the car ECU programmed after a HPFP replacement and noticed that when I paired my iphone to the car and looked at the BMW Assist menu and selected "My Info" an option to "download new destinations" appeared. Does anyone know what that is for? I don't think this is part of the newer navigation systems where you can download a previous destination from your computer at home but I might be wrong.

any help on this?

Part of the "send destination" from google maps via BMW assist feature.

If you type "BMW my info" into google, it will explain how it works. This feature was only available on select CCC equipped cars in the USA ... But available on most models in europe.

I guess that BMW is simply allowing MyInfo to all 2008 3-Series with GSM TCU and iDrive.
