Hilarious bug in Microsoft MapPoint sends users on a road trip across Europe

A bug has been found in Microsoft’s MapPoint online mapping and directions service which may send Norwegian users on a roundtrip through several countries and also including a couple of ferry crossings across the North Sea.

If the user picks driving directions between two Norwegian cities, which can’t be more than a couple of hundred miles apart, the driving directions send the user off on a road trip for 47 hours and 1685 miles later, having travelled though Sweden, Germany and the UK.
