    You are building bbox as an array. You need to build a string with comma delimited values to build the url. There are many ways to do things, but you could something like this to fill in the blanks in the URL:

    $minLon = Read-Host "Pleas enter minLon"
    $minLat = Read-Host "Pleas enter minLat"
    $maxLon = Read-Host "Pleas enter maxLon"
    $maxLat = Read-Host "Pleas enter maxLat"
    $url = 'http://www.overpass-api.de/api/xapi?map?bbox={0},{1},{2},{3}' -f $minLon,$minLat,$maxLon,$maxLat
    
    Start-Process $url
