Get Directions to Any Business Using Microsoft Lumia 535
Edited by Thor, Alexander Avdeev
Welcome to VisiHow! In this tutorial, we are going to show you how to get directions to a specific business when using the Microsoft Maps application on the Microsoft Lumia 535.
Turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on the right-hand side of the phone.
Once the phone is activated, the lock screen will become visible.
Swipe the lock screen up to get to the home screen.
Find the Maps tile on the home screen.
In this tutorial, it is pinned to the home screen. The tile has a blue background with a white map inside. If the Maps tile is not pinned to the home screen, swipe left to find it in the application menu.
Tap on the Maps tile once it is located to enter the application.
There are two ways to get directions to a specific business when using the application.
The first way is to tap the leftmost button at the bottom of the screen.
The button has a white circle with a white building inside. This is the scout button, and it will scout the area and provide information about businesses. A list of businesses in the "eat+drink" section will be given.
Tap any numbered option to get more information about the business.
For this example, Kazbegi, a restaurant, is tapped. On the information screen for Kazbegi, there is the second option that says "directions" and "from my location". It will detect the current location of the phone, so GPS has to be enabled for this application.
The application will find directions to the selected location from the current location of the phone.
Tap the back arrow button at the bottom of the phone to go back to the map.
The other way to find directions is to tap the icon with the three dots in a line to bring up the menu.
This works only if a place that has been marked as favorite is going to be selected as the destination.
Tap "favorite places".
In this example, Kazbegi has already been marked as favorite. Making a place favorite usually means that the place is frequented and enjoyed.
Tap a favorite location.
For the video, Kazbegi is tapped. This will bring up the "about" screen with the option to get directions.
As the same locations have been selected and detected, the same directions will appear. As it can be seen, this feature is very useful and helps to find and take directions to a specific location or business, even if the feature is used from different places around the city.
This concludes the tutorial on how to get directions to a specific business when using the Microsoft Maps application on the Microsoft Lumia 535.
