More detail when zoomed out
We are finding that when zoomed out to display a long route on the map, there is no detail on the map other than the route and markers. We feel it needs some reference points to show major roads and suburbs to give some perspective on the route.
The map view in most cases for us consists of just grey background with the route line and marker when showing an overview of the Route across Australia, which is not helpful.
A lot of improvements have been added to the map style incrementally in several releases over the past several months. Please have a look and see if this helps address your concerns. Additional styling improvements are also planned.

Thanks, I've just had a look and at zoom level 6 and less, it still doesn't show the major roads in Australia. I have attached a side by side comparison to illustrate.
On the left shows the Azure map with little road or location details.
On the right, shows mapping solution by another service at the same zoom level, which gives more appropriate detail

My customers sometimes need to print a map pointing out where their Service Order is so they can guide themselves to there, and for that I use Google Static Image API. However, while trying out Azure Maps, I noticed that it's impossible to guide yourself using it, since the streets names only appear if you zoom in really, really close.
