Cool feature that is not properly documented anywhere. Odds are if it was, people still wouldn't read it.

Downloaded the app to wife's Droid. Will check it out in a few days. We are not that tech savvy so hopefully it is pretty easy to do.

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!

• How to use the Send to SYNC feature in SYNC Services

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.

Thanks for the how to use link. Would have been frustrating not knowing we had to add a number to the services page.

Loosing google maps is horrible. I was undeniably the best. The Ford app is a pain to use (logging in and not remembering my account info just makes me avoid it altogether). Using MapQuest is like stepping back in time 20 years to the dawn of the internet.

I haven't been able to get mapquest to work with Sync for days. It just says the sync service is unavailable. I wonder if we are losing that too.

Anyways, Google Map integration was a huge reason for me getting the MFT NAV. It was pitched to me by my salesperson. I researched, used it often, and with no warning it's gone. I have all my destination for worked, plugged into custom google maps for this very reason.

If you use send to car in the android play store you can easily send locations to mft using google maps...I do it all the time :cool:

Mapquest and Sync Destinations are both working fine for me.

Original question answered... SYNC and OnStar customers need to use Mapquest, not Google Maps for send to car.
