Nokia Maps - City and Country Maps - Driving Directions - Satellite Views - Routes
If your looking for a free alternative to google maps on the playbook (last i checked it still has trouble working on the playbook) or the bing maps app (requires wifi or tethering), check out Nokia's web version of their robust maps app. It detects your GPS, facebook+twitter sharing, and also works with a bridge connection.

Interesting - it changed to the mobile site.
But it's directions could be in need of help.
For an address it gets me to the freeway and then....
enter the motorway: follow the road for 13.5 miles
Keep right and take the exit to: follow for 0.4 miles
Problem is it does not tell me which exit so I'd have to watch the odometer!

The Map loaded once for me (in Berlin or something though, im in US) and the GPS never locked on. Ever since, the map hasn't even loaded. I even ran Magellan in the background to lock the GPS and the Map (when it did work) never found me. Too bad. I am on beta OS 2 though.HTC Titan - WP Mango

Pretty Good BUT:
Always starts on Berlin.
Always have to set the measurements to miles.
GPS has worked, but is shotty.
Clean layout / maps.
Does a good job looking up businesses for me.
Gave me good directions.
Hard to say if it's better than or equal to Bing Maps. So I just have them both on my home screen along with poynt; pretty good setup if I'm traveling.
