Hi everyone -

The Google Send to SYNC feature has been discontinued. However, it's still available from MapQuest and the SYNC Destinations mobile app. Destinations is complimentary with your activated SYNC Services subscription and works with Android, iPhone, and BlackBerry!

The Mapquest app doesn't allow for this, Dysan911, but visiting Mapquest.com from your phone will. In my opinion, the SYNC Destinations app is the way to go!

I'm with you there, Bimmer-Bob! This application functions the same way our in-dash navigation systems do, you must be moving less than 5 MPH to enter a destination. As long as you input the info before you take off, you're good to go!

Let me know if you have any questions.
