    I was just wondering if anyone could help with me something. Since the bing update a few weeks ago, there is no longer the 'Local' screen when doing a search. I used this all the time to search for stores and it would bring up the closest locations and I could get directions straight from there.

    With the new changes, using the 'Web' menu, no locations or addresses show up. Is there any way to get this sort of functionality any more?

    I did some more searching this weekend and still cannot find any other way to do a local location search. Was anyone else using the bing local search to find places/directions? Maybe I was in a minority there.

    I searched for McDonald's and it shows up on the web screen. Even added some buttons to call them or drive to the the place.
