    Hello

    I just wanted to enquire is there a way to share a map location, other than my current location using Windows Phone 8 Maps app, or does this functionality require a third party app. Could someone please describe to me how to do this if it is possible. For example if I have located a restaurant on the map app how do I message my friends the location of the restaurant.

    Thanks for any assistance

    When you search for a "restaurant", click on it, and click "share".

    Its the middle button between the "pin" and "add to favorites".

    Thanks for the feedback. Just to clarify in the maps app if I search for the restaurant it displays on the map the location. If I then click on the search result flag on the map displays a screen like this see attached / inserted from here I can share these results:

    When sent to someone else comes up like a bing search result as opposed to just the location. Have I missed something

    There should be two parts to your "shared location message". There's a Bing.com part, so they can see other types of information.

    The other part of the message just have the address. When you click on the address it takes you directly into the maps apps.



    Edit: this is a pic to show what I mean when you share your location.

    Aaaaahhh. Ok. Thank you very much for that info. For some reason my address or the second url which should open directly in maps is just text not a hyperlink? Least I know it is possible. thanks for the information
