    The “location” detection in Windows Maps is hilarious. It says I am “within 30.9 mi” of Billingshurst. 30.9 miles? That must be what you get when you rely on the internet connection for location.

    maps leaves a lot to be desired, it has me turning left from my driveway, go 3 km to the end of a deadend road, make a u turn and go back past my driveway and then turn right- a waste of 6km. You cannot add stops for your trip etc.

    Google maps is far better; it actually locates me in my house, instead of the one down the street (Windows 10 map). I cannot do a multi-destination trip with Windows 10 map. When Microsoft abandoned Streets and Trips, which was amazingly wonderful, they must have fired everyone and started over; they sure did a hack job with this Windows 10 map app. Very disappointing.

    Maps should allow me to set my location when for those times when location via internet is so inaccurate. Also, cannot alter the route that Maps gives you or do a multi-destination route. For now, it’s Google Maps for me.

    How do you remove items from past searchs?

    For other than trivial use, Maps has a long way to go. You can’t insert your own POI’s, can’t import POI’s either, can’t enter multi-leg trips. How could Microsoft, maker of Mappoint, a great product, screw this up so much? Needs to be open for CSV, xls, and other point and data imports. Maps ‘favorites’ don’t work and the stupid starry favorites menu isn’t a menu as it does nothing.

    Maps doesn’t have a GPS mode for offline. I don’t understand why Microsoft even made this backwards and useless program.

    Maps, what a joke when one cannot even connect the GPS to them!

    No multiple waypoint route/directions… without it it’s just useless

    Anyone have any idea on how to import the “favourites” from Bing maps / Here maps / Google maps to the new Windows Maps app? Thanks!

  11. How do you make the voice navigation louder? I’m at a loss.
