Google 'Send To Car' is a really good feature. You can go straight onto the Google Maps site, input the destination, once you have that destination hit 'Send To Car'. It will then give you an account or user name that you put in. That account name is then connected to your car. You send that destination to the account, go to your car, open up 'Connected Drive', go into 'Messages', and within messages you will see an email that has been delivered with the destination that you had hit via the 'Send To Car' function. Select 'Start Destination' and you can start your route and you are away.
Syncronising your phone couldn't be easier. When you syncronise it to a BMW you just need to click on the 'Menu' button, then 'Telephone', then 'Add New Device'. This will then bring a unique system up whereby you can go onto your phone to syncronise your device. You put in a 4 digit PIN, which you add to the car as well. Whilst this is being syncronised, this will then allow you to look at your phone book via the vehicle's screen. This makes it completely handsfree for the user.
When checking if your car needs to be serviced, this is very easy option for the driver. You go onto the 'Menu' button, click on 'Vehicle Information', click on 'Vehicle Status' which will then bring up an image of the car with 4 unique digits on the vehicle. You select 'Service Requirements' which will then give you information on a range of servicing elements of the car including engine oil, brake fluid, vehicle check, rear brake pads and front brake pads. Click on anyone of these, and the system will tell you when the car will need to be serviced.
