  • New! Driving Guidance Pane prominently displays text-prompted turn-by-turn directions, enlarged arrows indicating where to turn, and distance measurement by miles and yards as drivers get closer to the destination.

  • New! Dynamic Turn View automatically zooms in to travelers' current position, allowing them to see where they are and upcoming directional changes.

  • New! Night Map Style enhances views of maps and directions for easy reading when consumers are traveling at night or on dark roadways.

Consumers can also go online to cross-reference MSN® Virtual Earth(TM) for greater trip-planning accuracy through additional maps and aerial imagery.
