I am playing with my Samsung Omnia W Windows Phone and I am really missing the mapping / drive applications I was used to on my iOS devices and S60 devices.
My frustration with the native Bing maps is that it seems not to have the same level of coverage as the Google Maps. It failed to find 3 out of seven places I searched for (which Google maps had no problems locating).
For example I wanted to go to Te Haruhi Beach, off Bruce Harvey Drive in Whangaparaoa. Bing maps did not even return a single search result when I searched for either 'Te Haruhi Beach' or 'Bruce Harvey Drive'.
I then downloaded the best rated location application, Navigation in the Microsoft Marketplace. It had a 24 hour free trial: First the app made me type the city. I tried Auckland and the place name and it did not find it. THen I tried to type Whangaparaoa for city - but the auto complete overrode the city name to the incorrectly spelt 'Whangapaoa' - and again it failed to find it!
All I want is a simple offline Mapping / Drive application where I can type in the address (without specifying the city or post code) and it finds me the place and give me Drive by Drive direction.
