Check this out. The Live Search maps feature which was available for NA, Europe and a few other countries has now been expanded to be available in select major Indian cities. This is pretty cool for say to get driving directions in cities like Hyderabad or Chennai etc.,. I believe as of this blog posting’s date, this feature is not available from other providers. Enjoy!
With this expanded version of Live Search Maps, users can now also search for directions based on common points of interest and landmarks and access detailed street maps for top 17 cities and highway road network covering 48,000 cities and towns, Microsoft said in a statement.
The cities added are Nasik, Indore, Sholapur, Surat, Nagpur, Pimpri/Chinchwad, Chandigarh/Mohall/Panchkula, Panaji/Marmagao….

For example I did a Directions from Besant Nagar, Chennai to Nanganallur, Chennai and it came out pretty good. See below.
As always driving directions have their own points and better to plan well in advance and check your routes before actually making the journey.
