Address Book in Navigation?

This is my 1st BMW so forgive me but is there any way to have an address book stored in the navigation system? I can't find a way to do it.

Thanks,

I think you just need to sync your phone and the nav can get the address from your contacts (by voice command) on the phone via bluetooth, just like making calls

You can also pull addresses from meetings on your calendar through the BMW Connected app.

Thanks,
There's no way you can store addresses in the car with iDrive 6 apart from your own home address. Not sure if 7.0 is different.

I find app to be the best route for entering any address. When you are in the car and the phone is connected, any address you enter goes straight into navigation. Saves you from entering addresses through iDrive controller which takes time and voice control that is hit & miss on recognising voices.
