You must be confusing Live with some other app. There has never been an option to enter an address in Live.

We are not going reinvent the wheel and spend millions doing so when you can just run your favorite nav app in the foreground.

This seems to suggest otherwise in the "Plan Your Journey" section:

Hope this helps.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm thinking it pretty much just meant to let you find your way back to your car and is not meant to be a substitute for a Garmin or Google Maps directions. It is not a feature that I've played with.

I hope that a lot of "features" don't get added to Live as I'm not fond of bloatware. As always YMMV.

It would be nice if it would integrate with Google Maps.
Hold down on the map where you want to get directions to.

Note that it does not currently offer turn-by-turn voice directions.
The map only shows your current location. Is there a mechanism of putting in your final destination that may be in another location? Am I missing something?
You can move the map anywhere you like.
