    Sometimes the WP8.1 map app doesn't give directions for certain places when I click on it. Is anyone getting same issues?

    No. Never. Are you having inclement weather in your area? Lots of cloud cover, etc?

    Nope. Some POIs in default map just don't work with directions, they work if I pin them to home screen and go to them from homescreen.

    Yes! I get this a lot! I'm using a 1520 on ATT. Here is an example.

    I press the SEARCH button to bring the "What can I help you do now?" screen.
    Enter Dave and Busters
    The Web results will find the local Dave and Busters locations.
    If I tap the Directions for any one of them (next to the phone number) The screen will blank as it wants to load the MAPS screen but it only goes right back to displaying the search results again. In other words the screen blanks for a second but then stays exactly how it is.
    This seems to be a problem with the WP8.1 software.

    Here is a work around.

    Instead of tapping directions, tap the picture of the map. That will bring up the map and you can choose directions at the bottom.
    This works 100% of the time where as the above issue is hit or miss. Some times tapping directions works sometimes it is as described above.
