Windows live search with VOICE RECOGNITION

has anyone gotten and tried the new live search with voice recognition? I bought the INSTINCT and the live search/navigation is seamless. I want to go back to my mogul but that is the only drawback, the VR and navi is sooo awsome I want to keep it. unless I know that with the new software that the mogul is just as seamless, I don't know if I'll give SPRINT the instinct back even though the bluetooth capabilities aren't as good on the instinct, no actual ringers in our ear or navigation directions over bluetooth. you can download it at wls.live.com straight from your moguls browser. somebody try it and let me know please.

Re: Windows live search with VOICE RECOGNITION

Actually I already had the latest version, which shows how much I use it. Anyway, the voice recognition worked fine for me, including via my BT. Dump that Instinct crap and come back to the Mogul!

Re: Windows live search with VOICE RECOGNITION

so you already had it where all you have to do is talk, it finds it for you based on your current GPS location? You didn't have to go through the "use my current location" thing and open up SPRINT navi? id did all that automatically one you selected "directions to here"? or did it require you to do things and prompt it?

Yes it has because I added it to my kitchen a couple of weeks ago when I flashed and just now fired it up for the first time.

Re: Windows live search with VOICE RECOGNITION

but what I'm asking is, is it as seamless and easy to use on the MOGUL as it is on the Instinct?

Since I do not, nor will I ever, own an Instinct, I cannot compare the "seamlessness" of it. I know that it worked just fine, very smoothly, on my Titan. I used GPS lock, found a Burger King with voice recognition, and then had it plot directions to the Burger King for me, again with voice recognition.

"Seamless" enough for you?

And ditto on not owning an instinct. (I refrained from using the crass nickname we have for it around the office that sounds a lot like "Instinct")


Thanks though Rainfreak, i'm gonna download that to my mogul asap.. didn't know live search would do all that for me.. i actually have never used it..

Yeah, I never used it either, though I did add it to my kitchen to check it out, then forgot to do so. Now that I have tried it out, I like it a lot. IMHO, I think it is actually quite a bit nicer than Google Maps on several aspects.

As for my sarcasm, it is one of those days for me
