Windows 10, new Microsoft Maps

 

Microsoft, the developer of Mappoint (a good application) has produced Maps, a lousy application. There appears to be no way to import, create, edit, or delete custom POI's for this "application" and I use the word "application" lightly. You can import maps and use the application off line but without POI's (other than the limited ones by MS) it is a rather trivial application.

If anyone knows how to import, create, edit, and delete POI's for the Maps program (Desktop version) you are genius and please respond.

Secondly if anyone can figure out where the Maps application and/or its data resides in Win 10 desktop, you too are at the top of your class.

MS allegedly used Open Street Maps to some extent but these cannot be located either.

Maybe by Version 10, Maps will be useful.

If you click on the notifications panel on bottom of screen by the time and date. Then click all settings,system ,off line maps then you can download the maps .

Posting this once is enough. Why duplicate it?

Windows 10, new Microsoft Maps

In Windows 10, all application reside in the users profile:
c:\User\%username%\AppData\Local\Packages

The new Maps app is called: Microsoft.WindowsMaps_8wekyb3d8bbwe

I made 1 favorite and found it in the subfolder: LocalState\Graph\Anonymous\Me\00000001.ttl

It seems that you can only make something a favorite if it is already there sad
