    "here maps" seems to work way better so far, I already installed it but forgot I had it... but Gmaps is so badly done in IE on WP... it's TOTALY unusable. also I gotta say that web designers have no future view of what's going on in terms of tablets and smartphones where they don't design websites with tablets/phablets/smartphone users in mind...a lot of websites work like sh!t (ex drop down menu's that only work with mouse instead of touch devices) I mean cmon people, do you not use tablets/smartphones in your own lives?

    Interesting, I never tried to use ie to view maps on the 1520. I just always used the apps, Nokia Here is great.
    I just tried to open bing maps in the phone IE and it just redirected and opened the default app.

    I agree, web sites need to do much better for detecting touch interfaces (mouse overs & popouts don't work without a mouse).

    Though Here maps performance is good, its not up-to-date compared to Gmaps. Its really a constraint who switched over from Android.
