Sharing Maps

The Maps app enables you to use the Bing Maps service to explore maps, search for places and addresses, and find directions. You can view road maps with minimal clutter as well as aerial maps that provide a satellite view of an area. In many cases, you can also view an angled aerial view that provides a 3-dimensional perspective of the map.
