Description


When sharing out the directions from the Maps app via email to a Window Phone the phone opens Bing maps but doesn't display the directions or the address. This makes for a less than ideal situation.

When sharing please include the address so that at least the phone can pick that up.

Thank

tony

You can copy and paste the address into an email message and the phone will figure it out. However I think it wants to copy as a single line address, but the phone only detects it if it's two line. So need to insert a break before emailing.

This is, of course, not the fully integrated experience MS should be working toward. Your suggestion is a really good one for the goal MS should be trying to achieve.
