    Hi,

    I dont know what you mean by turn by turn. Do you mean the directions ?

    For example, when you double click a line in the directions, the map changes to a view of the junction you need to turn at - that's what I mean by a turn map. I want to show these separately from the main map so I was wondering how I could do this. It's easy enough with the web service, each Direction has a Map associated with it, but the offline API doesn't seem to have this.

    Any ideas?

    I haven't done much with the control, but have with the application "in the background"...

    You can get turn by turn maps through the print functionality, if you want them on paper.

    You can also get at them by moving to the Location object that is stored with the direction. The Location isn't necessarily on the root, but is set (position and altitude) to give an optimum view of the turn.
