  1. Need option to add/edit places easliy like Google Mapemaker

    As I've said in the title we need this feature badly i.e. to add/edit places/roads etc in Bing Maps easily as Google Map offers. Bing maps in developing countries is unimaginable because you can't find important places, even locals roads are not listed in Bing maps. These lackings are leading to bad experience. Windows phone users are suffering most, because routes or interesting places suggestions are scarce.

    If Microsoft avail this feature I promise I'll volunteer to improve Bing maps in free time. I'll also do a great marketing for Bing maps among my colleagues and known ones to use…

    • PLEASE bring the My Places Map Tools over to the New Bing Maps!

      I use the My Places map tools all_the_time! They are extremely useful and SO much easier to use than the **** Google peddles! And it appears from the Map Preview UI that they could easily slip right into New Bing. Please continue to support these features.

      • Cycling included in Maps

        The only reason I go back to Google is to use their "cycling" option in maps. You can see all the trails in your city, and find a great route by just clicking the starting and endpoint on the map, no need for addresses. There are multiple routes to choose from, all showing elevation changes as well, which is very useful.

        • Dear Publisher: Any reputable map of Venezuela, South America, should clearly depict the internationally recognized borders between Guyana

          Dear Publisher:

          Any reputable map of Venezuela, South America, should clearly depict the internationally recognized borders between Guyana and Venezuela. By publishing a map displaying ambiguous border lines, you are creating doubt in the eyes of the masses about the facts.

          I implore you to desist in perpetuating this myth about the ownership of parts of Venezuela by Guyana. By continuing to publish this map you are likely to cause unknowing facts sometime in the future. Many people use the internet for their research and as we know, it only takes one publication of an error to cast doubts about…

          • Let me add markings to a map

            When I'm sending directions to a friend, I like to use Bing Maps to help me get the driving directions or share a map.

            It would be cool if I could circle things on the map before I send it, or make notes to help them through the tricky turns ("don't miss this stop sign!") or to give advice ("This is the best place to park"), right on the map itself.

              • Support Laos

                It's been a long time we don't have any option but Google Maps and I would like to use another due to the lack support from Google to Windows platform. If you could some support in Vientiane for the start.

                Plus both Bing maps and Here maps are not support Laos.

                • Have real time traffic alerts like Accidents or police activity

                  Having realtime traffic alerts like Accidents or police activity is very productive.

                  You should use:
                  WAZE -Traffic App
                  Here- Traffic Map
                  TotalTraffic- traffic
                  etc.

                  Google now has WAZE traffic alerts and i think that wouldbe very productive!

                  You should also use Twitter or facebook to scan posts and tweets fot traffic alerts. Thanks!

                    • Maps + Weather

                      In Bing Maps, have an option to add a Weather radar layer for the area you are looking at. Perhaps it could just pull the same data as what's available in the Windows Maps app?

                        • Fastest route for multiple destinations

                          I want to be able to add multiple destinations to the map and have it find the fastest route to go to all of them. Like I have 4 errands to run, but order doesn't matter. I believe Streets and Trips had this feature, certainly MapPoint did.

                          • Add a CenterManuallyChanged event to MapControl

                            It would be really helpful if the new XAML MapControl provided an event that fired when the user has finished manually moving the map position. This would allow developers to take an action when the user has re-positioned the map. Right now, the only event available for this is CenterChanged, which fires continuously as the user is moving the map. Hooking into this event is not performant and there's no easy way to determine when the user has finished the move.

                                There is missing a lot info in maps in comparison with Google maps. We need more detailed maps, especially outside US, e.g. when I am zoom High Tatras (Slovakia), there are displayed only tree hills and even they are placed incorrectly on the map!

                                • Roadtrip or Multi-Stop Route Planning

                                  More road trip-friendly options like multi-stop route planning and cost estimating based on gas on tolls - maybe work with Gas Buddy for this.. Borrow from your old friends at Streets & Trips. They had great software.

                                  • Bing Maps add-on does not work in the Russian version of Excel

                                    Unfortunately, the Bing Maps add-on for Office 365 only works in the English version at the moment. (This applies to Office Excel 2013 and 2016). When will this issue be fixed in the Russian version of Office 365?

                                    • В русской локализации Excel, не работают Карты Bing

                                      Карты Bing, к сожалению пока работают в Английской локализации Office 365 (версии 2013 и 2016), прошу сообщить, когда будет решена эта проблема в Русской локализации Office 365.

                                      Bing maps, unfortunately are still working in the English localization of Office 365 (version 2013 and 2016), please indicate when this problem will be solved in Russian localization Office 365.

                                      • Ability to use "My Places" under Directions

                                        I just started using the preview and I'm impressed with all the changes. However, I would love to be able to use "My Places" under Directions "To" or "From" location.

                                        For example: I would like to type "Home" under "From" and "Work" under the "To" section.

                                        • Add truck routes to the directions API

                                          Would like truck routing like PC Miler.
                                          The current Bing Maps does not tell you if a truck can travel on specific roads.

                                          Refer to the Google "denied" request.
                                          https://code.google.com/p/gmaps-api-issues/issues/detail?id=3284

                                          "For example, we would call the google API with two zip codes:

                                          LOS ANGELES 90040 LOS ANGELES 90031

                                          Rand McNally says this is 4 miles. PC Miler says it is 7.6 miles and would take 10 minutes. Google says it is 9.4 miles and would take 35 minutes.

                                          Our customers have a high respect for google data and would prefer we use this to tell them their ETA. However,…
