    I checked the original thread over at wmexperts and it seems that the updated file is not widely available as yet

    Maybe Microsoft has left some things out because this is a beta, but this program is practically unusable. There seems to be no way to enter a contact as a location. I have even lost 'Map a Location' option in contacts. They have removed the option for full screen, and added an icon bar on the bottom and have a bing search bar on the top. This leaves only a small strip available for the map. What a disappointment.

    You actually DON'T want to install this update. The new Bing Mobile drops the following items:

    1. Turn by turn directions
    2. When tracking via GPS, the screen doesn't scroll to keep up with where you are
    3. Gas prices

    Microsoft has rendered Bing for Mobile completely useless now.
