Microsoft Maps


Microsoft Maps, Windows Live Local (Beta), puts India on its radar faster than Google Maps.

See road maps of Indian cities on Windows Live Local (Beta).

Feedback for Microsoft:

- Some areas of Pune are misspelled on Microsoft Maps. For example: Sindhi Colony is Sindh Colony, Gang Peth is Ganj Peth, and so on.

Let me know if you need help with the correct and locally used spellings of areas in Pune.

- Find driving directions and traffic didn't work for the example, of Pune, that I tried.

Note for Google:

Isn't it time for Google to map India with a separate http://local.google.co.in/ interface? They've already mapped Australia and New Zealand.
