Microsoft switches UK Mapping to Multimap.com

Oh dear. What have they done? Microsoft have put a redirect in for UK users from their usual mapping site maps.live.com to MultiMap.

MultiMap is a new acquisition of Microsoft, and for those unfamiliar it’s an awfully ad-laden website with nowhere near the features of maps.live.com. Users are truely peed off that they’ve been relegated to this lower quality website.

While MultiMap brings across Bird’s Eye view from its Live.com brother, it doesn’t seem to fare very well. I tried the Bird’s Eye view (as linked from their homepage), went slightly South (‘up’) and got a really corrupted screen

  1. Thankfully they’ve changed it back now. Mind you, that corrupted Bird’s Eye is exactly the same on maps.live.com!
