    • Turn ordanance survey OS maps back on, on Bin

      Turn Ordnance Survey Maps back on, on Bing Maps UK. Earlier today, I was creating Wikipedia Bay and Loch articles in Scotland, and I was using Bing maps for the map ref. But I went back tonight and the ordnance maps are no longer there. The OS Maps are important for determining an accurate location and defintion of features like settlements, village, mountain, bays, lochs etc. I only used Bing Maps as it had the Ordnance Survey Maps feature available. I really don't want to use Google Maps. They are hopeless.

      • Bing Maps - I would like to be able to save routes that I create. Please & Thank You.

        It would be great if I could save routes that I create. Right now I copy the link from the sharing option, which tells me that the data is likely stored somewhere after I created the map initially.
        Please & Thank You.

        • Make bingmaps in Mobile browser consistent with that of Web browser

          I'm trying to launch Bing Map in external browser of the mobile phone for showing a specified location by specifying it's lat and long in the URL. I'm using the below URL for the same :
          http://bing.com/maps/default. where lat and long will be replaced by the actual values.
          When I hit the URL in a mobile browser, the URL automatically gets converted to "www.bing.com/search?q=47.". And the result contains a map with a pointer at an address specified by lat and long in the URL. (i.e. a bing search page is being displayed with a map pointing to…

          • Community based Traffic updates

            Very similar to Waze. Let us tell Cortana there is a police officer, accident, or any hazard so she can update the next person who has Bing Maps in front of them. If the app is open, let it see how fast we are going and redirect others accordingly. If it sees we are driving slow on the highway, reroute accordingly.

                • Bing Aerials outdated.

                  Since Bing aerials have been added to AutoCAD 2016 the imagery has not been updated for a very long time. I'm seeing areas that i do work in as old as 3 to 4 years past. What is the update schedule for USA mapping ? Should Autodesk get a contract with Google for more frequently updated aerial imagery?

                  • Polyline support for Bing Maps Custom URL

                    It used to be possible to create a custom URL to Bing Maps displaying a polyline. I literally copy-and-pasted the example from their documentation, just modifying it slightly to center the map on the shape, but the polyline isn't showing up :

                    https://www.bing.com/maps?sp=polyline.47.68_-122.12_48.68_-123.12_49.68_-122.12_LINE_some%20notes_http://bing.com__%23ff0000__10px_Single_Solid&cp=47.68~-122.12&style=h

                    • 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

                      Quote
                      "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,…

                        • Search in Bing Maps is BAD - Comparison with Google Maps

                          I am in chennai and when I type "Satya" Bing maps does not suggest me Sathyabama University although it can access my location. Bing maps is making an exact pattern match and not showing places which are famous and if I have a typo in the search query, where as google maps give an accurate auto complete by taking in considerations like famous nearby places, typo in my search text, etc.. As you can see in the below screenshots. Bing was able to show me Sathyabama University only if I type it exactly. Please improve the search results.

                          • Ignored error correction

                            A follow up to my post here at https://binglistens.uservoice.com/forums/283355-ideas/suggestions/13762467-a-comment-on-my-case-please

                            I’ve come the supposition that Bing Maps’ refusal to correct the misnaming of my Pennsylvania village on your map must be personal for some reason because the references I supplied over the last 31 months are both conclusive and undeniable, and I have seen you correct other obvious map mistakes, although in many cases it has taken years. This has gone as far as one of your senior responding Developers to dubiously deny knowing what it was I was reporting even after reading all my posts on the Bing Maps forum.…

                            • Do something about Your Birds Eye View. New Maps are distorted and blurry.

                              The NEW Bing Maps has replaced their great Birds Eye View with their 'NEW' distorted and blurry Birds Eye View. Either give us a link to the old Bing Maps or fix the terrible map that you have now. You used to be the best map on the internet, but have now ruined it with your NEW map. I don't even care if the images are a little older, at least I can actually see what I am looking for. Please see attached images to show the difference. Is this what you call BETTER AND NEW?

                                  Today(23/01/2017) there is a huge clamour and riot in the Chennai city. And most of the roads are blocked and there is a terrible traffic across the City. But below you can see the traffic map provided by Bing and Google. And lets just say it was not good, you can see the huge difference between them.

                                  • Integrate Contacts and Maps

                                    It would be great if bing maps would open have some provision to open the contacts app and save the current location as a person's address. This would make Outlook.com contacts much more personal and great to use.

On this card relevant information is displayed for the place; such info includes the address, phone number and website.

                                      It would be good if there was an option to save this to your People hub so that a new contact was automatically added with the relevant name and the address, phone number and website automatically filled in

                                      In addition to saving it as a new contact maybe also offer the…

                                      • Bring back the old version of maps. I might as well switch back to Google Maps now.

                                        Bring back the old version of maps. The new one is terrible.

                                        • Allow Users to become Bing Local Guides on Bing Maps

                                          Literally the same idea that Google implements on Google Maps. I am a Local Guide on Google Maps currently, simply because it puts me up front and makes me opinions matter in the town that I reside.

                                          I actually typically do not partake in Google or Facebook programs. I don't really want to become part of these companies and their goals and objectives but I do want to further myself with Microsoft in all regards, whenever possible, for that is where I lay my comfort…
