Live Search for Windows Mobile

Sign in to queue


A must-have for Windows Mobile users is the Live Search app for mobile devices. If you need to search for a place, get directions, or find what else is in the area, Live Search for Windows Mobile can really be a lifesaver. After installation, to use Live Search, you just click on the Live Search icon from the device's Start Menu, and the application launches. From the main screen, you can easily navigate to select the city of your choice by drilling down by geographic region and alphabetical listings. To find a business or category, you enter in the information you need to find in the search box and your results will display on a map. You can use the routing feature to get directions from point A to point B, and, in major cities, you can even see what traffic is like on your selected route. Roadblocks and delays get highlighted in red, letting you know if you need to plan an earlier departure to reach your destination in time.

Using a compatible Bluetooth GPS receiver, you can view your location on the map in real-time. If you're in a particular area and are looking for things to do, you can use the Live Search tool to find nearby restaurants, shopping & services, transportation, nightlife, and more. After choosing a particular selection from this menu, you can zoom in, get directions, save to your contacts, or SMS the location to a friend. To get the application, download Live Search from using your device's browser.
