Map with Directions code example demonstrates how to show route with Map Control and get direction informations with text and text to speech in Windows Phone 8. Start and destination addresses can be added with TextBlocks. Both addresses are calculated to geo coordinates and locations are showed in the Map with map layers (blue and red dots). RouteQuery class is used with these two geo locations and route path is displayed with new map layer. User can simulate route by pressing Prev or Next Point Buttons in the screen. Text instructions are showed in TextBlock and Text-to-speech is used when a new turning point is reached.
This application is useful when you want to simulate your route beforehand.
