Microsoft should not have it's mapping service under a searching brand. Because searching is not currently a dominant feature for Microsoft. It would be nice if it was under Office, but it doesn't make sense. So for now why not call it "Microsoft Road", "Microsoft Address" or something? Work on a catchy and marketable name and separate it from search.

As a product, I have loved Bing Maps since it was "Live Maps", but currently the name is not helping the product grow.

I don't think the name is really a pertinent issue right now they have more important work elsewhere on the apps functionality and rich features, formerly "live Maps" how about they actually do it and make the maps live i.e. they move as you move when using nav
