XDA member Aaron McCarthy let us know about this GPS tool for your Windows Phone 7 device. A-to-B, as
it´s name indicates, is a Turn-by-Turn application built to demonstrate some of the capabilities of the ArcGIS API. You won´t be able to do much with it as it´s on “demo” state by now but you may see some upcoming development along the same line. The application features 3D view, zoom in/out” buttons, 2D Map for browsing, supporting pinching, panning etc, and pick new destination by touch’n’hold on the map. You can get it for free on the market.

A-to-B (GPS turn by turn Navigation – FREE!!!)[MOD EDIT: READ MY POST!]

Just found this on the marketplace and I have to say… pretty awesome. This is what WP7 was missing. Although its clearly in the beta stage it is pretty good for a V 1.0.

A-to-B is a Turn-by-Turn application built to demonstrate some of the capabilities of the ArcGIS API for Windows Phone. Warning: The application is meant for demonstration purposes only! Do not rely solely on the suggested routes or instructions given by this application. Features: – Turn-by-turn routing. Sound notification when a turn is coming up. – Add often used destinations as favorites. – List of recent destinations. – “3D view” when in navigation mode with easy accessible “zoom in/out” buttons. – 2D Map for browsing the map supporting pinching, panning etc, and pick new destination by touch’n’hold on the map. – Easy accessible “Recalculate” button if you go off the route and need a new route from your current location (because of service restrictions, the app is not allowed to do this automatically). – Routes all over US (support for Europe coming in a future version). – Worldwide map (detail may vary).
