Bing app with Navigation for Windows Mobile released!

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

The Bing app for Windows Mobile was released today. In addition to the existing search functionality, you can now get real-time driving directions with voice guidance (including street names and distances) if you have a GPS-enabled Windows Mobile 6 phone.

In addition to being free, this app offers some other advantages over other popular GPS navigation devices. For example, you don't need to download or pay for periodic map updates, as this happens automatically when Bing updates its map servers. The app also shows traffic conditions on the map and by default it generates routes that avoid traffic.

Obligatory screenshots follow...

This is the screen that you see when you open the app:

Here is the screen that shows for a couple of seconds while the app generates a route:
