    You will have to turn on locations services in order to get directions. It would be same for any app which provides directions from point a to point b.

    I did not have to on this on my iPhone 4, running iOS prior to 5.
    I only had to do it when getting directions from my current location, but not if I am just picking 2 locations.

    If location service is off on maps there's no way it could find your location.

    Yeah, I see that now, you have to enter your location manually thou, that's about it.

    If you want to get directions from location to another (not necessarily current location) then go into directions and manually enter both. This can be done if location services is turned on.

    If you are not using your current location, then it is not faster one way or another. Either get addresses from contacts or manually enter (or drop pin, as you said).

    I must be doing something wrong then, this does not work for me with location services off.
    I usually look up a location that I want to go to, then enter my home from "contacts", but the phone gets stuck on "loading" directions.
