Destination on NAV by phone # or coordinates

I took Euro Delivery of an M3 sedan a couple of weeks ago and can't wait for the car to get back home. I absolutely love the car but had a couple of questions about the nav. The new idrive was very intuitive but I could not enter a coordinate or search a destination by phone number. I may have missed something or maybe this is just not possible on the BMW navigation. I understand once the car is in the US I can send an address via assist.

I was headed to the drop off in Paris and only had coordinates and a phone number for the drop off location. The phone tree was all in German when I called and couldn't get to a live person. We hit awful traffic just before CDG airport and were running really close to five o'clock. Fortunately we found the transit company fairly easily which was near terminal 3.

Is there any way to add a destination by either phone number or coordinates?
