    Trying to stop a route in progress is pretty difficult when driving - the "..." button is way too small. Also, there's no dark theme anymore?

    I'd still like to be able to change the navigation voice from the system locale. I'm using the US English locale but still want the navigation voice in another languge. I hope they'll implement it someday.

    Yes these are some nice point which Microsoft has to do work.

    Having the data at the bottom of the screen is much better, but the current speed font above the speed limit is still too small on my 950. The tabs are also nice addition and so is having offline storage of favourites.

    You can also cancel the navigation by just pressing the back button instead of the '...'. I'm not fazed about having a hamburger menu or not. But they are taking up too much space at the top of the screen with the directions.

    There is STILL no drive mode like Here Maps. I want to be able to just drive without putting in a destination and have the current speed and speed limit shown.

    Would be nice if we could import speed camera locations as MS does not provide them for my country.

    I see there is an option to transfer your favourites from Here, something I requested on the feedback page. However, I have already transferred all my favourites using another method found on these forums.

    MS Maps has taken a leap forward with this update. Still not on par with Here Maps, but at least it is now useable.

    With this update, Maps now Imports HERE Collections to Maps Favorites.

    If you previously used this method to Import Collections to Favorites: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...favorites.html Don't bother with the built in Import. It does not get you folders, it just doubles everything you already have done.

    The hamburger menu needs to remain on the menu of fast food joints not used a cheap UX hack / draw to shove items away. Granted a similar element is needed for apps like outlook as swiping is used for other functionality.
