I've read this elsewhere on this thread, but it has never happened to me and I normally start the car with the map screen on. There must be a way to stop that.

Has it become possible to send directions from the Google maps phone app yet?

No, but there is an app named "LEAF Link" that let's you do it.

If you have a Windows Phone, LEAF Commander can send addresses to your LEAF.

This android app lets you send destinations to your Leaf from Google Maps.

Just find your address, choose Share, and choose Send to Car

Just FYI, these methods no longer appear to work with newer versions of Google maps

On Monday I used SendToCar with a restaurant that backs up against the highway.
Hopped in my car and blindly trusted the guidance directions.
Maybe my first hint that something was wrong should have been the directions taking me one exit past the restaurant instead of before, but then I hopped back on the highway going the other direction.
Sure enough when I passed the back of the restaurant with the banner you can barely see over the highway wall, the nav voice said "You have arrived".

SendToCar must be sending coordinates, not an address... sigh.

This is the second time it's let me down. I'm done. We need real google maps integration. Not this hack crap.

I came to this thread looking for a way to stop this. This has been happening to me -- not every time I start the car, but most of them. Today it happened 2 of the 4 times I started the car. I've sent 6 addresses from Google Maps in the month that I've had the car, and all 6 showed up each time today.

Using the NEW Google maps you need to first setup your car in your Google account.

To add your car
  • 1. Go to https://www.google.com/maps/sendtocar" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;.
    2. Click Sign in and enter your Google account information. This step may not be necessary if you are already signed into a Google account.
    3. Click Add car or GPS device.
    4. Select your car type from the dropdown menu. For example, “Nissan.”
    5. Type in your CarWings ID in “Account ID” field.
    6. [Optional] Type a name of your car to remember it more easily.
    7. Click OK.
Now that your car is setup you will get a "Send to car" prompt when you type in an address into Google Maps.

It should appear just below the address after you enter the address as shown below.
