Following the "Drive To" and "Drive From" links takes me to the same old MSN Maps & Directions, cluttered with ads and loads of extraneous information, and lacking all of the cool new VE features!
Bugs after playing around for 2.5 minutes:
Many of my searches seem to be timing out... the location window just says "Loading..." indefinitely, with no status updates if a timeout occurs.
VE seems to be having some issues finding locations that Google Maps finds without any problems, like "magnolia & tujunga, north hollywood ca".
Search for "4th & pike, seattle wa", text in the scratch pad replaces '&' with '& a m p ;'
Anyhow, cool app, and congrats on the launch! I'm sure you'll work out all the kinks with time.
