Windows Mobile: Bing Maps Update adds Navigation Support

By Alan Ng - May 12, 2010

We have some great news for Windows Mobile handset owners now, as Microsoft has rolled out an update to their Bing Maps application, adding free turn-by-turn navigation features to all users.

As reported from BGR, a new navigation button will now appear when you next start up the Bing Maps application, which will provide voice assistance when driving to a particular destination.

The update is available for all Windows Mobile devices running version 6.x on Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T in the U.S. Verizon was not on the compatible list of carriers for this update.

The update is available right now. We imagine some of you will be pretty happy with the update. Try it out now and let us know your thoughts on it.

Everything working ok for you?

    Works great on Samsung Jack. Volice navigation works great. Map looks great. One issue I noticed is the battery problem. Because the screen stays on while I'm using Bing, my phone ran out battery in a matter of minutes.

    Works great but would like it to turne with the direction. If you are going south the position curser may be going the opposite direction.

    Turn-by-turn voice navigation doesn't work on Samsung Blackjack 2 i617. It just doesn't make any noise at all.
