Question Adding a personal POI to the Sat Nav?

This is making me feel really stupid (I got my first GPS system over 20 years ago, and I've spent many years as an IT techie...), but I can't figure out how to add a personal POI into the sat nav on my car!

I have a number of personal destination, which can't easily be found using a normal address (for example, the entrance to various campsites at Le Mans). I have the Longitude and Latitude for these POIs, but I can't figure out how to enter them into the sat nav. And if I could enter them, I can't figure out how to save them - do they get saved as "Contacts"?

Any assistance appreciated.

(Car is a UK 2012 E93 M3 with CIC and latest 2016-2 West Europe maps).

Thanks. I'm away from my car at the moment, so can't check, but doesn't that just let you store the current location where the car is?

What I want to do, while sitting in my garage, is to store a number of locations which don't have normal street addresses (as I mentioned, the camp sites at Le Mans are a good example) in advance of visiting them.

It looks as if using the Interactive Map (with its fairly poor user interface) might be my only option.

I can't believe that it's so difficult to do something in the M3 that a 100 TomTom can handle with ease...

Ah, ok, in that case you can use ConnectedDrive and send routes to your car. This uses GoogleMaps backend.

Thanks for the suggestion. Looks like I'll need to fork out 120 to renew my ConnectedDrive subscription, so. :-(

Yes, you need a valid sub.

I can't check any other options as my e90 is at the dealer for 6 weeks. I can sat nav in my loaner tomorrow though, but its NBT rather than CIC.
