Video: Bing Navigation in Action

Advertisement

A new Bing for Windows Mobile application was released this morning and now we’ve had the chance to test it out on the road. The big new feature is full voice-prompt text-to-speech navigation. Yes it tells you the names of the roads you should turn on and even tells you which side of the street your destination is on (sometimes). The full-screen large graphic of your next turn is a welcome feature, but mainly we’re happy that the voice prompts work so well.
