Nice one but :
1. can't add events on tap on mapicons... Why ???
2. Map icon are not always visible... that is so crazy... and to me and a lot of people why ?
3. When you try to create pushpin with shapes like ellispes and so on... you can the add event on it but... when you move your map with your finger or zoom the map move faster than your pushpins and it make crazy poor effects...

is there a work around to bypass all those... how to say bugs ? i dont know...

I'm struggling to use this SDK with a Win 8.1 XAML application. It continues to tell me it can't find the SDK and I've changed my configuration to x86. I did have the previous 8.0 version installed, but I uninstalled that.

Great SDK but why no NuGet?

Unable to use this SDK with SDK for Windows 8.0 alongside :(

Great Map API - easy to use, great functionality.

by Ricky_Brundritt | October 31 2013

I've used this SDK in about 15 different sample applications so far and haven't had any issues with it.

I downloaded the SDK & ran my app, run great. Got rid of annoying touch bug as well!

  • Dashed MapPolyline's

    • Is there anyway to make a MapPolyline dashed, if not could this be added in a future update because this would be a very nice and useful feature.
    • It's best to ask these types of questions in the Bing Maps forums. This question has been addressed here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/7f54034f-4e16-47fa-ad88-b94f2dbba269/dashed-line-for-polygons?forum=bingmapswindows8
  • Can't use the Bing Maps Win8.1 SDK for VS2013 with Bing Maps Win8 SDK for VS2012 alongside
    1 Posts | Last post December 31, 2013
    • We have to develop both Windows 8.0 and 8.1 apps, but if I install the Bing Maps Win8.1 SDK for Visual Studio 2013 (Version 1.313.825.0), I can't use anymore the Bing Maps Win8.0 SDK for Visual Studio 2012 (Version 1.113.601.2) on the same machine. This is a very annoying issue. Please fix it! 
      Thanks
