    Bing has Voice Guided Navigation

    Bing has added voice navigation. They have also a new update that has put back most of the features they removed. I haven't tried the navigation yet, but it looks like they have added movies and some additional navigation options.

    It's working on my VZW Touch Pro 2 (WM6.5/Stock ROM)!! Some are reporting that it defaults to VZ Nav (instead of Navigation) on Verizon Phones. I had no trouble ...VZNav is installed but not active on my TP2!!

    I'm so glad they decided to limit the sizes of Winmo7 phones.

    I have tried the navigation using the new Bing. Microsoft has done a really good job. The street name is pronounced many times, so there is no need to look at the screen. When you are one half mile from your turn, a new screen appears with the name of the street and distance to turn in large letters to make it easy to read.
