i am not sure if this is a bug in 8X or Windows Phone 8 or a limitation.
If I pin a location on my front screen or click on an address from calendar I get a screen which says About and "directions - from my location" option. But when i click on 'direction from my location' I get 'Search app in store?'.
Now when I do a search it does not find any app.
Earlier 'Direction from my location would just launch the Maps app.
Anyone experience same issue?

It's a WP8 thing. It allows 3rd party apps to plug in, like Nokia Drive or Navigon. Unfortunately they did it in such a way as to prevent the built in maps from working correctly. You have to search the address to get the directions to work or something. There are a lot of weird changes and decisions made with WP8.

Why not do it the way Android does? Pop up a window with a list of apps that you can use to open the address, with the option to set a default. That would be the sane way to handle it.
