Live Search for WM6 w/GPS receiver: pls add gps position etc. RRS feed

  • *Feature Request for WM Live Search mobile application w/ GPS receiver*



    I have a smartphone w/ WM6 and use the Live Search mobile application with a Pharos GPS receiver but unfortunately it doesn't show me the *longitude/latitude/altitude of my position*. I think this is a feature I'd like to have and hopefully others as well.


    Let me make two more feature requests:

    - it would be great if I can use a lat/lon coordinates pair for the start/destination input field since some destinations in the real world actually provide their GPS coordinates already.

    - it would be great if I could save lat/lon pairs of a certain position in a kind of 'favorite list' or something. Some may call it route markers or so. However, it's not necessary that it's a full blown route marker feature... it would already help if I could remember certain positions together with may be a comment field. 


    Any comments on that?

    Best regards

  • This is a good feature to ask for Frank.  I have forwarded this request to my contact at Microsoft.

  • Virtual Earth Mobile will allow to to both see your current lat/lon, and jump to a given lat/lon.  Once there, you can use it as your start or destination.  (There's no "favorites list" though.)

    Dear Frank,

    Live Search is a great application.  I use in conjunction with a Pharos GPS to map my trips.  Any possibility that future versions might include a "trace"  feature so that the application would permit one to see the route already traveled (so that one could easily retrace one's route?
