Yes, I did.
Based on the new username that is on the owners portal.

Just tried to do this again since the switchover. I don't remember what my user name used to be, but I know I use my primary email address now.

Sent to car and changed my car info to use my email address instead, but no luck. Anyone else? Everything else (including the new mobile app) works very well for me.

FYI... it also now just says "Send to Phone", but the car option comes up.

You have to add your car first here:
https://www.google.com/maps/sendtocar

Then when you do the "send to your phone", your vehicle will be listed along with the phone.

I still can't get it to work on mine, it just gives an error "We couldn’t communicate with your automaker. Please contact them for assistance."

WORKING NOW... see below.

I did add the car, with the new logon. But I believe that is incorrect.

If you go to the new web NissanConnectEV and click on the tab next to "Manage Vehicle" -- it should read "NissanConnectEV (CARWINGS)"

From that tab, you can click "Edit Vehicle" and it will display the NissanConnect EV Send to Google Car Account ID for you. In my case, it was unchanged.

However, my previous "Send to car" from Google Maps still didn't work. So I deleted the new and the old entry and just recreated one from scratch (using the ID from the screen I just mentioned). Viola! Tested and works perfectly again.

Thanks! That is what my issue was. I was using the login but the send the car was still using my old ID. It works now!

NOT working again now.

Seems like there is still some "wonkiness" out there on this, because I didn't change any GOOGLE or NISSAN settings and it's been "broke" for three days now.

I have found this feature to be hit and miss. It usually works for me, but it seems to depend on the way the destination is characterized in Google Maps and at Nissan. For example, today I tried to send the destination using just the street name. It was a street that was only one block long, so I didn't care about the address. Googel Maps found it just fine and had the link to send to car, but after I clicked it, it cranked away for awhile and then said it was unable to completed the transmission. On a hunch i tried putting in the name of the street and the closest intersecting street. Same result. Then I put in the actual street number and street name and it worked fine. I think the Nissan database is much smaller than Google Maps' database. It can find some intersections, but only relatively major ones. I suspect it can't parse just street name without an address to go with it. So if you have trouble, try entering the data another way.

I haven't bothered to update this thread, but I have found that even when Google "send to car" says there was a problem, it seems that the destination is usually at Nissan ready to be downloaded anyway.

At least that's been the case the past three times.

I just had the same thing this morning. Google Maps found "DMV Los Gatos" just fine and gave me the link to send to car, but could not complete the send. Then I put in the street address and sent it successfully.
