Can't send Google Map addresses to BMW?

Anyone else having this issue? I had been using this for the last several years.

It sends the map location through BMW assist. Assist is free for the first couple years and there after you have to pay a membership. Maybe your free period is up?

I just looked and its supposed to be four years.

I don't know what you're trying to do. Can you explain (I've never done this)?

Sent one today also - worked fine.

For the person who asked what trying to do. You can go into Google maps select and address and send it to you BMW Navigation system. It shows up as a message in connected drive

I called BMW Assist.

2 things:
1) Your username needs to be all upper case now in Google Maps.
2) The only way to set your passcode for BMW phone apps is to call BMW Assist.

I guess they are still trying to figure out the smart phone integration thing

Google Maps not sending address to Navi

I am having this same problem as well.
I was using the service perfectly for two years and all of a sudden- addresses that I send would not be received in the car.
I called BMW Assist and they told me that they weren't aware of any problem... but then after several calls regarding the same issue- they told me I would have to enter my user name(email) in CAPS. I tried this and still no success. I was then told that since Google maps version (?) was updated- the service has not been working as it did with BMW and users are having issues.
The informed me of a complicated process to try but I was too frustrated to bother. I think that if customers are paying for Assist and this is a function of the service - it should work properly.

If anyone has also had this issue and somehow resolved it- please let me know. I miss this feature a lot and I hate when things don't work the way that they're suppose to.

Thanks,
Justin
