  1. Windows 10 Maps App Not Displaying Directions Properly


    When using Windows 10's Map App, everything works except for getting directions. When the route preview comes up, the blue line glitches out and sometimes covers the entire screen. It never even comes close to being properly sized, much less over a roadway. Happens at all levels of zoom, with or without the maps being downloaded for offline use, and on both roadway and aerial view. I do, however, see blue dots at intersections where you need to turn, but they are not connected.

    I am currently using a Panasonic CF-19 Toughbook Mk5.

  3. Dynamically updating directions when using the Maps app

    When using the Directions feature of the Maps app to generate directions from "My Location", some steps in the directions include distances to the next step. This is great, but this distance is not updated while driving, which means that it might say 20
    mi when the directions are generated, and still say 20 mi when you are only 0.5 mi when you are almost to the next step. This can sometimes make the directions confusing, or even cause you to miss the turn or exit or whatever, because you don't realize you
    are almost there. Your location on the map (the blue dot in a diamond) automatically moves to display your current location, so I don't see why the directions can't also get automatically updated so that distances stay correct (and, also, if you go off course,
    regenerated, so you don't need to specifically ask to have them regenerated).

    Several other additions to the Maps' Directions feature that I would like to see, although not quite as important, are:

    1. Arrows on the blue line showing which direction you will be heading at each point.

    2. The ability to control whether you see the just the map, just the directions, or both.

    3. Slightly more compact or distinct steps in the list of directions. I would rather see two steps that say "X Ave" with a turn left icon and "Y Ave" with a turn left icon than one step that says "X Ave and immediately turn left onto Y Ave" with a double
    left turn icon. I think that having only one street name per step (at least in the main heading of the step, I don't care if other street names are used or mentioned in the subtext/details of the step) makes it clearer what you need to do at each step.
