Hotmail users can embedd Bing Maps into emails for showing locations and linking to directions in the main Bing Maps Website.
When users create a new email message the option ‘From Bing’ is displayed and contains
Maps & Places
Using the Maps & Places creates a side bar (see image above)
You can add new locations (and save them for later)
Then just use the insert to add the embedded map to your email.
Internet connection is required for displaying the map.
You can now add MapQuest maps to your blog or website.
How to do this:
Enter the location into New.MapQuest.com
Click the “Send To” button, then the “Your Website” tab
Copy and paste the code to your site.
“The MapQuest specific HTML code is written for you and all you need to do is add that text to your HTML source on your web page. This is useful for businesses, bloggers, or even hobbyists building your own website. Imagine making it easier for your customers to see where you are, and with a click or two, they can get directions directly to your location. This allows you to add maps instead of just links! This works for single locations, as well as routes. More advanced features for Embedded maps will be coming soon as we continue our fast, iterative feature releases.”
Also includes the ability to pick your language, search and re-arrange saved locations within your ‘My Maps’ collections and more in-line help. We have also updated the ‘Send to’ feature to now support Garmin GPS devices and added the Embedded Maps option.
