Google Maps “Send-To-Car” service was launched three years back with BMW, and since then many car manufacturers have joined. In Dec 09, Audi’s connected car navigation system which includes Send-To-Car joined, and now Google Automotive says that “Ford and GM motors joined too.” “Now, drivers of Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles in US enabled with Ford SYNC can send business listings or addresses found on Maps directly to their cars. In addition, OnStar equipped GM vehicles can make use this innovative service. Great news for ‘Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Hummer, Pontiac, Saab or Saturn!'”
Drivers can then use their car maker’s turn-by-turn navigation system to be guided to their selected destination, and can send destinations from Maps directly to their connected vehicles in 19 countries and more than 20 different brands.
In US alone, Send-To-Car is available on more than 15 car brands and more to join soon.
