Get Directions from Bing Maps on WP7
I can't seem to find the Get Directions functionality from my Samsung Focus running WP7.
According to what I've read, there should be a button the Bing Maps called Get Directions. I don't have it.
Is this because I imported a US phone branded by AT&T (with their bundled Turn by turn navigator product which doesn't work in NZ?)
Or is this a shortcoming of WP7 in New Zealand?
Keen to hear from anyone who can enlighten me.

Magic indeed. In fact, I didn't need to reboot either, the button showed up immediately.
Awesome stuff, thank you for your help!
(Why MS would hide this for NZ browser settings is beyond me..)

I have put up articles about enabling Maps/Directions and also the Zune Pass when outside the U.S. at WindowsPhoneNZ.com in the 'How To' section:
For anyone who trys out the Zune Pass I would be interested to hear your feedback. There's a possibility the Zune Pass access is getting locked down further.
