Connected Drive route portal. Pile of....

Is it me, or is this absolute shite?

It cant understand a simple postcode - or even the example address!

Useless.

Garage List
Tend to agree there, falls well short of my expectations, and what it surely could do if BMW put some resources into it.

Try using Google Maps for sending routes or addresses to you car. Find the details, click on Send, choose UK, BMW and put in you account name if I rememebr correctly. This will send full details to the car and is much better than ConnectedDrive!
