I want to manually make adjustments to the trip, so i can avoid road works, add another stop to my trip, or calculate distance and duration of alternate routes!

I agree. A "ROUTE VIA" ability would be great. Allow intermediate stops to be added. The Microsoft Streets & Trips mapping experience was great where one could actually click and drag on part of the route to reroute the route interactively. Would be great if that could be present in a Win8 app. An interface like Waze has would be great, too, where at least several alternative routes with the distances and current times based on social networking traffic data are presented either as a list or diagrams on a map (you can alternate between display modes with one touch on an icon). Feedback such as Waze users can provide with a quickie menu of icons to touch to provide feedback would be great if Maps is to be a real-time, real-life mapping help, and not an old fossil of a mapping tool.
