  1. 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.

        • Bingmaps browser not support Internet Explorer 9

          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.

          • Correct location markers / Update bird's eye photos

            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 -->…

                            • GPS in Search Results

                              It would be nice if you could just search stuff like "GPS" or From ESB to Times Square NY" and then it would pull up a map and offer options like:

                              Transit
                              Plane
                              Walking
                              Bus
                              Car
                              Bike

                              Compass
                              Longitude and Laditude
                              Traffic Alerts

                              _________________________________

                              Bing Maps already has some of these but, people usually just search for what they want and want quick, fast, and reliable results. SO if you guys could add that, it would be fantastic!

                              • Ongoing support for "User contribution" to view KML files in Bing Maps.

                                In the previous version of Bing Maps, users can overlay a KML file by including a link in the URL. Example: http://www.bing.com/maps/default.aspx?mapurl=http://66.208.114.165/sample.kml
                                Can this capability be included in the new version?

                                • Correct position of Trinidad and Tobago cities

                                  If you use Power BI to map cities in Trinidad and Tobago, to which you append ", Trinidad and Tobago", several appear in the US and other places. One good way to display this is to get the "c" towns/cities from Wikipedia in Power BI, append ", Trinidad and Tobago" and then show on the map visualization. You'll note "California, Trinidad and Tobago" (yes, that's a town) is plotted in the US' California.

                                  • Provide ability to add Notes to My Places in Bing Maps

                                    Add an editable Note field to let Bing Maps users add their own unique info to My Places; such as, a reminder to try a recommended dish at a restaurant, a club name (example: astronomy, book club, support group) & meeting times, when regularly scheduled sales start at a favorite store, etc.

                                    • Need options to hide items in the drawing tools toolbar

                                      We need an option/functionality to hide items in the drawing tools toolbar, We have no use for the "Add pushin" and "draw a new line/path" items, and want it hidden from the users of our application.

                                      • You detect my location in Europe. So couldn't you set kilometers as the default?

                                        Every time I go to Bing Maps and search for directions, the default always gets sets to "Miles".

                                        Naturally, we all know that "Miles" is the default in the entire universe. However, there are tiny little places across the world - known as not-USA - that use those pesky little things called "Keelooometers".

                                        As a nice way to be user friendly to those people, when you detect their location as "NOT-USA", maybe you could set the default measurement units as KM as well? ;)

                                        • Just tell us a date certain when you will finally update your map data!

                                          Your underlying data source, Here.com Maps, has had many qualified/confirmed updates over the past two years. BingMaps has NOT been updated since 2014. PLEASE just tell us a Date Certain when you will finally get around to the single-most important part of any mapping program: When will you update your map data???? PLEASE don't tell us soon... we're working on it... etc. Just come clean. Will you EVER update it?
