Windows Maps (Redux) Thank You Microsoft and Tom Tom
For those of you that have been on here for a while you've seen my rants about Microsoft not updating Microsoft Maps, and when they teamed up with Tom Tom nothing seemed to change either. Well, I'm pleased to say that that has changed. I ran a store update this morning, and I noticed that there was an update for Windows Maps. Sure as you know what, there it was, the update to the South Mountain Freeway Extension was finally there. It's still sad though that Google maps showed it within a few days, yes, Days, of it opening, which was almost a year ago. Anyway Thank You Microsoft and Tom Tom for updating a severely out of date map.
Microsoft Maps Location
Anyone know if Maps or Microsoft's location services were changed recently? I moved from one side of the country to the other and built a new computer. It showed my location as my previous address much to my dismay. I turned off all location services and set my time and weather manually as well as clearing any incorrect locations from my account. We then went back to visit for a month, and after returning, I tried turning location back on and it correctly showed my new address. Starting at the beginning of this week, my location had drifted by a couple houses, and today it went back to my old address on the other side of the country, thus making my weather and time settings wrong as well. I'm hoping this isn't going to require me to take another trip just to get it to work correctly again.
Windows Maps - Now with Tom-Tom? - How's that working out ?
I've ranted about the problems with Microsoft Maps, till I'm just about blue in the face. Yes, I still use it on my laptop, and Yes I've sent the notations to Microsoft on numerous occasions. I swear that unless I can come back after the switch to Tom-Tom, and praise them for a job well done, this will be my last Maps post. Yesterday 6/1 in a post on MS Power Users they noted that Microsoft was switching map data providers, from HERE, to Tom-Tom. I gave up using HERE on my Android phone, for several reasons, but the biggest was that the maps here in the desert S.W. were out of date. Google had the Loop 202 and the Ed Pastor Freeway, that has been open since December of 201 updated within a week of its completion. As of this morning it still isn't updated on either the HERE WE GO website, or Microsoft maps. https://mspoweruser.com/microsoft-bing-maps-switching-tomtom/ I really can't believe that Microsoft is going to use this on Azure? Thanks for letting rant! Stay Safe out there!
