  1. Unlimited size support for embed in a webpage

    Currently, the maximum size for embedding Bing Maps on a website is 800px by 800px. It would be nice if this limitation would disappear.

    • Metro Line Copenhagen - underground lines overlay

      Show/plot on map underground line.
      I can see that the line is visible if it is over ground, but as soon as it gets underground, it disappears

      • 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.

        • Topography with Longitude and Latitude

          It would be useful for outdoor enthusiasts to have the option to print a topographical map with longitude and latitude for orienteering and hiking. Along with this, a layer that shows where public lands are (e.g. BLM and state lands) would be useful.

              • Better and more detailed maps

                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!

                • Updated + Detailed + More Functional Maps

                  A lot of the maps are outdated, especially for the rest of the world. Even major cities outside of the US like Toronto, etc. are completely outdated.

                  • Improve address resolution

                    1. When someone searches for "leigh tce" also include "leigh terrace"

                    2. When someone searches for "mayoral drive" also include "mayoral dr" in the results.

                    3. When someone searches for an address, base it on the current map location (eg, a search for "mayoral dr" in Auckland, NZ if this is where the map is centred. Don't show me "Mayoral Gallery, Barcelona, Spain"

                    • Create/edit places and routes in Bing Maps

                      Provider greater detail at a lower level (think or use OpenStreetMap).

                      The current Bing maps allows the importing of GPS/KML files which is great but it would be nice to be able to use something like OpenStreetMap and routing capabilities to create map routes for walking/running/cycling and even kayaking (check out Komoot.de).

                      Allow places and routes to be private/public or shared between groups of people.

                      Ensure settings are based upon the users locale by default (eg, metric for NZ rather than the current default to imperial.

                                • Have BING mobile provide you fun information based upon where you are

                                  For example, say your on a road trip. You could have BING prompt you with trivia based upon your geographic location, provide you fun facts(historical or other) about towns your traveling to/through. Maybe have an option to provide almost like a tour guide experience, depending on the area traveling through

                                    • correct routes in boston

                                      Bing can't get the right times for the 93 on/off ramp in Boston... I've noticed this consistently for 4 years now... With millions of travelers daily, that's a whole lot of people Bing is sending the wrong directions to. Bing time estimate: 3 minutes, actual 25 minutes. Some lanes of traffic require 2 people to travel quickly, and other people just break the laws and travel on the breakdown lane. so aggregating all these s just plain wrong.

                                      It you correct the time estimates, my confidence in Bing will increase threefold. Just frustrating to be sent on the wrong road…

                                      • bing maps should be accurate in India

                                        bing maps should be equal to google maps in India. even Here maps are not upto google maps.

                                        • Allow users to search for an address and then save it to either one note or send it to their windows phone

                                          It would be nice to be able to access my previous search results on other devices. An example would be looking up a restaurant address on my tablet or desktop and then accessing the results on my windows phone to drive there later.
