Its ok for Mumbai users, because the coverage is good with more details. Look at Pune, Bangalore or Hyderabad - Many main roads are missing/not named .. Hyderabad and Bangalore has just 7-8 roads marked on the map!!

Now you can get Live search installed on a Windows Mobile phone by going to Live Search for mobile

Though it is meant for use in UK/US, you can search for Indian cities. You can get driving directions as well displayed on your mobile !!
