This section provides visual guidelines and recommendations to implement the Live Search brand into a Live Search application user interface (UI), and how to design a UI for Live Search functionality. These guidelines help you create a unified brand experience on a Windows Embedded NavReady powered device.

The LS4D functionality connects the search experience found at Windows Live at this Microsoft Web site together with the navigation experience provided by GPS systems. A customer can search for phone-book listings, and their portable navigation device (PND) can complete the experience by making these destinations discoverable with turn-by-turn directions.
