Bing Offers Free Turn by Turn Navigation
In direct competition with the newly released Google Navigation for Android, Microsoft has updated the pre-existing Bing searching application with an exciting new feature.
The new version 5.1 will allow you to rely on Microsoft’s app for voice guided turn-by-turn satellite navigation, without having to pay anything.

A list of suitable phones has been compiled by Microsoft and it can be found here.
