    • Traffic in Bing Maps is Very BAD - Comparison with Google Maps

      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.

        • Save contact data to your People hub

          When you search for a place on Bing Maps (eg. a restaurant or a garage) the results appear as a 'Place' card on the left hand side of the screen. 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. Also, there are a few minor perks that Google gives for being a Local Guide.

              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…

              • Retain "Old Style" Bing Maps

                By retaining those old style, easier to use, "Bing Maps" (which you will only retain until the end of 2016) you also retain a greater clientele satisfied with your product! As soon as you "switched me" to your new "better" version I could never do what I wanted - but it was even MORE difficult to move back to the Bing maps I was originally introduced to!!

                WHATEVER you choose to do for goodness sake keep the simplicity!

                However, unless you retain what I know and love I'm off and won't bother with Bing again - whatever you try and…

                • Obstructions

                  I was in the middle of taking screenshots of a road I used to be on from Street View on Bing Maps to put together as a quick drive through style video with the old version and it was great. Now it's as bad as Google with the annoying obstructions like the arrows staying in the middle of the screen the whole time without fading away and ruining my shot. If the old version wasn't broken, why "fix" it? How about fixing how Bing Map's Street View is displayed and bring back more options we used to have.

                  • I have an idea regarding maps experience and autonomous car development. Contact me at andrei.borbel@yahoo.com for more details.

                    It may be, or not, a trully new idea and could easily and effortless get the development of maping experience and making driving much more safe. I m thinking of starting myself but i lack the abilities to code and the money.

                        Bing maps browser not support Internet Explorer 9. My company does not allow new IE since it breaks all the apps that we have. Only IE 9 is support and cannot install Firefox or Chrome. Please bring back maps for IE9.

                          Map Location Markers should be correctly placed at street address. The marker for my address is a quarter mile off. / The bird's eye photo of my Lagoon Point Log Home property shows an open construction site. That photo is at lease 9 years old.

                            • Provide Streetside view of ski slopes in major ski resorts (or all ski resorts) - we have a great idea how to do this!

                              Provide streetside view (I guess like googles street view) of all or major ski resorts. This could been done relatively quickly. It would allow skiers and holiday makers to plan their next holiday - see what the ski runs are actually like. Perhaps allow for advertising opportunities for Resorts, hotels, chalets, resort businesses and also businesses that are actually on the ski slopes.

                                Printing a quarter of a map was not a great idea.
                                Perhaps you next great leap forward will be better.

                                • Relocate existing map favorites

                                  I have had the need to relocate existing favorites in my Bing Maps, with the only option I could find being to delete and re-create the favorite. This is more important now, as Bing has arbitrarily moved several of my favorites from their exact lat/long coordinates to the street address on file, or to the nearest city center, if no street address exists.

                                  • BING sent me in the wrong direction. From Doubletree Inn in Leominster to Cushing Academy, bing put us on 2 E instead of 2 W

                                    Maps needs to be correct. This is second time in a few months. First time, Bing sent us past our destination

                                    • Add Bing Places in Poland and add edit tool in the World

                                      Bing,
                                      You should know, that in Poland there is a very high problem with no roads, places e.t.c. I have a liquid for it :) You should add 2 new function (1 total new, 1 old, but not in PL): Bing Places and Edit tool. With Bing Places It'll be no problem with no places :-) With Edit tool we can edit our maps: add new roads, places (in this option: parking, airport, train etc.) Let's do it! :) I <3 Bing.

                                      • Public Transportation map

                                        Public Transportation map

                                        Hi,

                                        I got a great idea to improve Bing Maps and that Google doesn't have.
                                        What about an option to show public transportations?

                                        What I mean is an option like the "display traffic", but where it will show lines and différents informations about public transportations.

                                        So it's all starting by you clicking on the button (maybe a small tramway icon?) and all the map (not the satellite one) is going down in term of opacity, so it's easier to see transport lines.

                                        For the colors, I thought about something like :

                                        Bus --> light blue
                                        Train -->…
