Bring back the first party Bing Maps app to your Nokia Lumia!  This is a launcher for Windows Phone stock Maps app.  Why do we need this?  That's because Nokia removes the Bing Maps launcher from all Lumia phones and replaces it with the HERE Maps app. This app will get us back the Microsoft designed Maps app with the stock Maps icon.

NOTE:  This is just a launcher app which kills itself as soon as the native Bing Maps interface is launched. Nothing more.  Also, Bing Maps still uses Nokia Map data. The sole purpose of this app is just to give you an experience as close as possible to the Map app experience from WP7.

    The actual program runs and functions as advertised. That said, be aware that you are DOWNGRADING from a previously superb product. What is ACTUALLY installed is still HERE maps garbage Nokia code that is grafted to the superb Bing map engine. I have had this app repeatedly issue bad instructions that cost time in trying to find the actual target. I thought I was 'imagining' the difference until we observed my wife's WP7 phone was bringing down different instructions from Bing than my Nokia 1520 phone was. I am not sure whether the queries are flawed or it is just sloppy coding. Whatever the problem is, I can verify it is serious and irritating. I know, through side by side comparison, the WP7 maps version was FAR superior to this bloatware. I don't need a GPS to get bad instructions and go around in circles. Microsoft, I am begging you to bring back the original WP7 app and make my phone useful for mapping once again... Frustrated in San Diego.

    Navigation is a little glitchy on windows phone. Otherwise works fine.

    I would love to c this n an update. Say that when you click on any area of a map or maybe double click, it is brought up in local scout and you can find information about the area like history, population, crime rate, etc.

    Works great. Shows traffic, and has downloadable maps so I don't have to use data when I travel abroad

    The app itself is fine and works well...the only gripe I have was the obnoxious link that came up every time I used it. Hopefully by posting this will make that go away...

    Great map software, fairly fast and has good overlays. Would like a 3d view.
