  5. 5
    In this example, the map is focused on London, which is good, as this function works better in more populated areas
    .
    There will be a lot of options to choose from when looking for a place to eat. If a smaller or a lesser-known place is selected, then there will be fewer options.

  6. 6
    Tap the scout icon in the bottom-left corner of the screen to search the area for the places
    .
    The icon is a white circle with white buildings inside. Tapping on this will bring up the list of places in close vicinity.

  7. 7
    The first option is "eat+drink", and this is what is needed
    .
    The list of places where it is possible to eat are sorted by distance. In this example, number one is Luxe Restaurants, 0.08 miles away, which is very close. Number two is West Lothian Restaurant, 0.13 miles away, which is also very close. To further narrow the search, filters must be applied.

  11. 11
    Tap the box under "Sort by" to change the ranking system
    .
    The possible selections are "distance" and "rating."
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Tap "distance" to select the distance ranking
    .
    This will give time preference over quality (time spent getting to the location is more important than the rating of the place).
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Tap the back arrow located at the bottom of the phone to accept the filters
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    In the example, Spanish food restaurants are filtered and numbered according to their proximity
    .
    Some locations will be listed along with several stars, which are ratings. Iberica Farringdon and Camino Blackfriars have four out of five stars each, and that indicates good quality. Iberica Farringdon is only 0.23 miles away, which is very close, and it has a four-star rating.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Tap the name of the selected location
    .
    In the example, Iberica Farringdon is selected. The "about" screen will be opened that will show the information about the location. The screen is very informative and has the address, the phone, the neighbourhood, the website, the menu, the opening hours and the current status of the location, and "general info" that has the appropriate dress code mentioned. If the restaurant were open, the directions on how to get there would be needed.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Tap "directions" to bring up the map with the route
    .
    If the address is tapped instead, only the real address will be shown on the map. However, directions will show the route to the place from the current location, inasmuch as "from my location" is selected when tapping "directions". The WiFi connection is required for this to work.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Follow the directions to get to the restaurant
    .
    In this example, the directions take a while to load, as the current location is not London; therefore, the phone may take a while to correlate the current location with the London restaurant location. It is going to work nevertheless, even though the distance is several thousand kilometers. It is going to work the same way as if the phone were in London, where it could be a short walk to the restaurant with simple instructions on how to get there. As it can be seen, the current location of the phone has been detected, the location to eat at has been found, and the directions to the restaurant have been given. This concludes the tutorial on how to find a place to eat at when using the Microsoft Maps application on the Microsoft Lumia 535.
