  1. add address to maps

    Can you help me add a new street with 6 new home addresses to the Map? The USPS delivers mail to these addresses, but UPS, FEDEX, and others cannot find these addresses because they use google maps or bing maps, which do not have these addresses. Please help. The addresses are 921, 917, 913, 909, 908, and 912 Santo Way, Cardiff by the Sea, CA 92007.

    • Definitions of symbols

      There is little point in putting symbols on maps if these are not defined. Please provide a glossary of symbols, as you would find on any paper map.

      • Mistake on Map

        Incorrect name for site on Accuweather map. The site in Miami, FL bounded by SW 152 Street, SW 117 Avenue is not the Toronto Zoo. It is Zoo Miami, formerly Miami Metro Zoo.

          • Bing map problem

            AccuWeather says it uses Bing Maps to locate cities for its Android weather system. While Bing Maps can find Tannersville Pennsylvania, the AccuWeather interface only finds the New York location. They said to report it to you.

            • Adding Photography on the maps

              Hi,

              Like Google and other open source maps, it could be nice to allow users to import photos and 360° photography to the maps location it was taken. Since Street Side is not updated anymore, it could be a great alternative.

              Thank you

              • Limited polygon to static map.

                So it will be possible to have "images" to maps instead of n instances of the client.

                • Streetside history

                  Dear Community,
                  People who use Google Street View can take a look at the history of the captures, e.g there were pictures taken in Dec 2009 and Nov 2016. Is it possible to view such a history on Bing Maps?
                  Thank you very much for your help.

                  • Share map collections and collaborate on map collections

                    No idea why this isn't already a feature. This would be a huge help to getting people to use bing maps.

                    If I have a collection, I should be able to make my collection public and share it with others. I should be able to give others access to updating that collection or even have the ability to make it public. I should have the ability to moderate new entries on the collection as the owner.

                    Scenario 1: Planning a trip with friends to Paris
                    Create a collection, share it with your friends so you can all tag places you…

                      Thank you for your passion Bing Maps. We like this suggestion and will be evaluating options.

                      In the meantime, a Collection can be shared to Social Media and via email. Go to My Places, select share, and then select the Collections you wish to share.

                      • In reference to the weather map on Accuweather the siderds are not visible only names

                        It used to be fine. Something has changed. It is not as nice as it once was. Could the lines to made a little lighter for visibility sake.

                        • Allow users to scroll past embedded maps on touch devices (like Google Maps "cooperative" mode)

                          Historically, scrolling on pages with embedded maps on touch devices has caused UX issues when the users gets "stuck" on the maps since all touch swipe events are captured by the map (for panning).

                          Google Maps have added a "cooperative" touch mode that mitigates this by separating page interactions (one finger) from map interactions (two fingers).
                          https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/javascript/interaction

                          We have a project now for a multinational client that is leaning towards switching from Bing Maps to Google Maps for this very reason.

                          Does Bing Maps address this issue somehow as well?
                          Is there a plan to address it in the future?

                              It will be convenient to have the possibility to manually arrange them.

                              • Fix bug where removed/deleted favorite locations keep re-adding themselves

                                I have submitted feedback on this several times and there is no progress. I have 3 devices on which I use Microsoft maps (all running versions of Windows 10 (Lumia Icon, Surface Pro 4, and Dell Desktop). No matter how many times I delete favorites, and no matter from which device I delete favorites, they always end up re-adding themselves to my favorite locations list.

                                Fix it, please.

                                • How about a PAUSE button for a trip ?

                                  Too often a trip starts and something unplanned happens. Someone needs medication or bathroom break or you find you don't really have enough gas for the trip. Yet the trip voice keeps yammering on as if no pause is needed. It then tries to remap the trip as the driver tries to locate a gas station, drug store, etc. using up device battery and unnecessary processing of trip data. A simple PAUSE program would be helpful here. A 'Mute' button would also be helpful while people in a vehicle are trying to sort out the interruption of the drive.

                                  • Don't treat well-defined areas as points

                                    When searching for e.g. "Texas, United States", the result is a point roughly in the middle of the state of Texas.

                                    The same search on google maps highlights the state area (and shows some information in a sidebar).

                                    It would be great if know states/provinces/countries etc. could be treated as areas rather than simple points. This also means that geocode/autosuggest should return different search results for areas and places. This should only apply when there are well defined borders such as countries, states, counties, provinces etc. but not cities.

                                    As a bonus, it would be great if a…

                                    • India Map

                                      When we see the India map on the web browser its perfect, where has when we look at the India map on Power BI (which uses your API) the map is different. Request you to urgently look into the same. I have almost run into trouble because of it

                                      • Map Collections have disappeared!

                                        All map collections of the past two years are gone! However, if I click a link I previously emailed to someone, that Collection is displayed. It appears the data still resides somewhere. URGENT

                                        • Possibility to click on public transport icon

                                          Hi,

                                          It could be nice to click on bus/train/subway icon to get the itinerary and hours of arrival/departure + link to website/ticket reservation.

                                          For the moment there is some bus icons, but you can't get info from there.

                                          Same for the maps app on Windows 10.
