The product managers for Live Maps in the UK have taken a slightly more proactive approach than last time to change the way that you get to Live Maps or Multimap. The changes will come into affect on the 9th May. The idea is to have the minimum impact to business and developers who have used the Live Maps platform in their own applications, whilst allowing Multimap (which according to Autoexpress is the #1 site for directions) to receive traffic from our other web properties.
Here are the golden rules you need to remember:
- If you visit the URL http://maps.live.com you will get to Live Maps UK.
- If you go to maps via http://www.live.com then you will get to Multimap.
- If you go to maps via http://www.msn.co.uk then you will get to Multimap.
