I just tried it. When you enter your destination and hit that little blue arrow (it looks like >) to the right of the destination, it does bring up the next screen that says "send to maps" or "send to turn by turn"... I can send to maps (I use Waze, and it opens fine) but when I hit send to turn by turn it says - Unexpected server response. Please try again. If this issue persists please contact support for assistance.
Seems like the server is down or something? Never saw that before...

You just select the Navigation option on the app screen and it brings up a map of sorts. Then you key in the address at the top in the address bar and it brings up a popup with the location that you select and that takes you to a screen where you select to send the directions to your NAV or Turn by Turn. When it responds with directions have been sent, you are done. Then when you start you car, the directions are downloaded to your Nav, if you selected to send them to it.
