The Nokia Maps are the backbone of the service and Bing also uses information through the maps which may be placed on the official websites of various malls. You can read more about the service on the official website of the Bing Venue Maps.

A small touch which has further been added to Bing Search alongside it is that when people with Windows Phone search for local destinations, it will automatically provide them with the directions for the destination and there’s an option for voice guided navigation too. Google has launched indoor maps for 22 cities in India too so how could Microsoft stay behind?
