Windows Maps now lets Insiders set multiple stops when getting directions
Windows Insiders on the Slow ring are getting early access to a small, but nifty feature in the latest update to the stock Windows Maps app on Windows 10 PC and Mobile. Now you can set multiple stops when getting directions, making it easier to plan out a trip in full.

To get started with multiple stops, you simply press the "+" button to add a stop or right-click the map and click "Add Destination." You should then see all of your planned stops on the map, which are also available to check out in segments or print out. Not too shabby.
Other prominent mapping apps support this feature already, and it's been pretty highly requested from Windows Maps users, so it's good to see it hit the app. If you want to try it out for yourself, you'll want to make sure you're in the Slow ring and on app version number 5.1703.707.0. And if you're not an Insider, this should make its way to production before too long.

Test this guys.
This Windows Map application must have a Drive mode where you just click/touch and it would get you into drive mode where you would be shown the usual speed, direction etc, without first having to chose destination.
I believe we have some android/iOS users here, have they changed since Nokia sold them?
