HondaLink Send Destination

    Up till a few weeks ago I used to like to use the HondaLink app (on Android) to send a destination to my car (Limited). A recent HondaLink update seems to have broken this though. Is anyone else having issues?

    Now when I send a destination it says "Your destination will be sent to your vehicle next time you connect to your vehicle." That would be fine except it NEVER actually sends, even once I'm in the car and connected.

    I will admit prior to the update it was very buggy in the sense that it never saved these sent destinations into 'recent', and it was a bit flaky about sending (sometimes would go and pop up as soon as I got in the car, sometimes might take 20 minutes before it showed up on the head unit, sometimes it never came through, and sometimes it would show up the following time that I started the car.) It was annoying, but seemed to work about 70% of the time which is better than the current 0%.

    Any suggestions or ideas?

    I do my route in Google maps.

    Make sure you Start the trip on your phone.
    Get in and power on car.
    Connect phone to USB port.
    Android Auto starts on the head unit.
    Select icon on bottom-left and it will show your route already working.

    This has worked for me 100% of the time...so far.

    Thanks David - I should have clarified (pun intended) - I meant sending it to the built-in Honda/Garmin navigation rather than using Android Auto. I use Android Auto/ Apple Car Play a lot when traveling for work and renting a car, but I find it more annoying than the built-in nav most of the time.

    The problem I'm having is slightly different. I send the destination from my phone. When I get in the car and start driving I get an alert (audible) and then a message at the top of the screen flashes that the destination to xx has been received. But I can't find it anywhere in the Garmon system. I've also tried setting it as a favorite, still no luck.
