Bing Now Does Voice-guided SatNav On WinMo Phones For Free

By 10:06 Sun, 08 Aug 2021 Comments

Bing Maps is getting into the navigation business in a bid to further deprive dedicated SatNav unit manufacturers. It now supports voice-guided navigation on Windows Mobile 6.x phones on a number of devices.

Following in the footsteps of its rival in the mapping world, Google Maps, Bing has added turn-by-turn navigation capabilities with voice prompts to its mobile application.

To utilize the feature, all you have to do is update the Bing application and tap the "Navigate" button when getting directions. Its routing algorithm is customizable so you can choose the fastest or the shortest route, avoid traffic and tolls and other things you'd expect from a SatNav application.

The updated Bing application does voice guided navigation

The updated Bing application works on Windows Mobile 6.x, but we're guessing there will be a Windows Phone 7 version when the recent Operating System (OS) arrives. Go to on your WinMo phone to acquire the update.

However, voice-guided goodness is available only in the US for AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint subscribers and not all WinMo phones. Hit the source link to see the list of compatible phones.
