How does this feature work? Can you use it through the Infiniti Connect app or do you have to do through the Infiniti Connect website? Anyone with experience using this feature?

It works great for me. Do you have an android phone or iPhone? If you have an android phone down the following app Send To Car. Setup your profile real quick and your ID is your Infiniti Connection username. Once on google maps and you find something, send it to your car and enter your infiniti connection user name. When in the car go under Send to Car under Infiniti Connection and it has a "G" as the icon picture.

Refresh it and it should be there.

Are you using Google Send to Car (google's feature) or Destination Send to Car (Infiniti's feature)? I find the google one a bit more intuitive and easier to use. Either way, the ID you'll use is the email address you used when you created your Owner Portal Account - presumably you did this with your salesperson when you bought the car, or on your own shortly thereafter. I use my same gmail address for both the owner portal and for log-in to google maps. I don't know what happens if you have two different emails for those two systems.

In google maps, you need to be logged in to your account (at least that seems to be the way it works now - a few months ago it was different - you could send an address to any car/email address then). If you're logged in, you should see a "send to car" button under the address in the upper left corner of the screen. Just press that and next time you get in your car, go into the Infiniti Connection menu and press the icon with the lower case "g" on it. If it is your first time using it, I believe you have to press the "g" button twice or hit the "update" button a second time. The address(es) you sent should then show up.

I'm not sitting in my car right now so I'm typing these instructions from memory. Hopefully I got it all right. If I wasn't clear, please ask for clarification.

yeah... it is good feature if InTouch loading is a bit faster and Infiniti is not using 2G. The time you turn on your engine, it will take more than 2 minutes to get your destination set to. It is a lot faster entering the direction directly since direction is available immediately.

I also noticed, after my last up-to-date intouch update, this feature broke for some reason. In internet browser, when I sent the direction from google map, the Infiniti Connection does not give me the list anymore. I am not sure if the google side is broken or Infiniti Connection is not getting it.

Thanks! I forgot to try this feature and just did, works great.

While I do not see the convenience for every day addresses as you can look up an address in the car just as quickly as you can do online but I do see it useful if you are in sales and have many stops to make in a day.

It will however be very useful to me for fishing spots as there are no addresses associated with my "secret" spots. ;)

Also if you are using Google from the web and have the new Google site you have to switch to Classic Google to get the option to send to car to come up.

carolina, the feature is back in the new version. At least it is for me, as long as I'm logged in to google using the email address I have associated with the car.

I'm confused; do I send the address from the "send to car" app or from Google Maps?

Once on google maps and you find something, send it to your car and enter your infiniti connection user name.

It depends where you're sending it from. If it's from your PC you'll need to setup your Google profile to have your car added. Your infiniti connection email is your ID. If you're using an android device you'll need to download an app in addition to Google maps. The app is called send to car and you need to set it up just once. Once you find a place on your Google maps app click on share and select send to car. It will invoke that second app and send it to your car.

Once in your car, select the icon that has G in it to sync and download.

I was trying out this feature this weekend and I really like it but does anyone know how you can clear the list of locations you have sent? Once an address gets to the second page on the list you can't scroll to it while the car is moving so I would like to delete all the ones I have sent before and keep it to one page.
