    Hi Laura,

    I already used all my feedback points, so if you can pass this suggestion, that would be great.

    Local Scout is cool, but, I want to see Gas Stations!!!. It is one of the most critical thing I need. Aside from that, maybe hospital and etc, but, I really want to scout Gas Stations. I can use Bing Map and search "Gas Station", but, the result is not that great, it misses a lot of gas stations in the area, which ended up telling me to do a long drive when there is one 2 blocks away. I am living in LA county: California.

    Would be great if you can pass the suggestions for me. Thank you.

    Local scout is a very nice feature. Important note is that you can also "scout" information on any area by going to the mango maps app.

    I'd happily use it if you made it available in Switzerland.

    Was disapointed that it wasn't on my phone and when I went to the Marketplace to get it, it wasn't free.

    @illuminati:

    You may not hear me, but, how do you do that? Thank you.

    MS - attention to detail is important. A minute is 60 sec, not 63, although a Minute of Mango can be any length MS defines I surpose. This attitude seems to pervade the MS software design and delivery.
    Given that Australia is a country where mango is sold, I presume it will work here. I am having trouble downloading it just now - so I can't confirm or deny. Feature looks good though.
