Sharing

POST /api/1/vehicles/{id}/command/share

Sends a location for the car to start navigation or play a video in theatre mode.

These docs take from the Android app, which sends the data in JSON form. However, a urlencoded POST body will work as well. The basic format to a request looks like this:

{
"type": "share_ext_content_raw",
"value": {
"android.intent.extra.TEXT": "123 Main St, City, ST 12345\n\nhttps://goo.gl/maps/X"
},
"locale": "en-US",
"timestamp_ms": "1539465730"
}

Note: This API was previously navigation_request, but has been updated to support video links as well.
