    I don't know if anybody has ever noticed this before, but I recently noticed that if you live in a country without full Bing maps Integration, you can still get directions in NoDo (Don't know about beta Mango) by setting your "Browser & Search language" to "English (United States)". All you have to do is enter the adress with the name of the city in English if it exists in English and Bing Maps will find it. Maybe it's only in some unsupported countries but I know it works perfectly in Switzerland and France. Has anybody else tried or noticed this?

    Yep, precisely. I've let it set as US since first boot: Marketplace, everything else works :) Only thing is that Ovi Maps is the only navigation app of any platform that works here
