    Ok. This is something I found on the mobile msn homepage today. This is the first time I ever went on the msn homepage, so I don't know if it new or not. The maps are 10x better than google maps imo, and it has voice search, gps location weather/local search and more!!! (You don't need a msn account) Download it here: http://m.live.com/download/download.aspx?A=download&DLT=wls&PA=1&MID=1001

    I used it for a while about a month ago, then with OS updates and other things, never put it back on. Very nice app. Lots of options, great maps, and always finds the closest business to me.

    the issue i've had with Live Search is that when you enter an address, residential that is, it wont come back with any results. This was a little frustrating, and Google maps did a near accurate job of showing residential addresses with little backtalk of "cannot find address" or whatever error it used to regurgitate at me.

    Has it changed? I haven't used it since.....

    So, I love this app, but after I posted earlier I tried getting on the maps part and I can't get it to find my position. I'm in options > GPS Configuration and I chose Blackberry GPS. The status just remains on waiting for position. Anyone else have this problem? Is it my settings?
