For users of MSN Direct-Enabled GPS devices, like those made by Garmin and Alpine Electronics Inc., sending directions from your PC to your car is possible with the latest release of the MSN Direct
API. This new functionality has now been integrated into Live Maps
, too. Many people still use a PC to find directions on the internet when they’re planning a trip, but would then have to re-enter those directions into their car’s GPS or make a printout to take with them. But now, using Windows Live Maps, you can find your route and save it as a Collection. Then, from the “Actions” menu, just choose “Send To GPS” to have the map sent to your GPS device in your vehicle.
