Found a bug. When map is rendered, I mouse over under the Road menu item and after that I pressed back button in current page (this is under the Metro style application built on JS/HTML) and error raises. It tries to hide popup by timeout but at that time the current window content is already changed and there are no corresponding element on the page.
Well, Sometimes updates come. No idea what's being fixed, because there is no way to get any details on release notes. Threads on msdn forums are just viewed and no reply from any team member received. Okay, I'll give 2 stars instead of one. But please make transparent release notes, voting for features (uservoice, for example) and do answer at support forums. We're writing apps for your Store, so please be polite.
Older release reviewed:
No bindings. Designer support too awesome to be working. Often map doesn't show changes until you move it or do some other magic.
Solid SDK with new features regularly released. Note that most of the negative reviews are based on older versions that had less features and were buggy. This SDK is updated regularly so if you do have an issue report it to MSFT and they will likely try and correct it in one of these updates.
I too experienced the same issues as some previous fellow reviewers cited. Horrible... It's sad to realize that this last Bing Map SDK version doesn't even nearly meet the basic WinRT criteria and is obviously far from being ready for common use.. Sorry to say folks, but this BM version sure needs a lot of refactoring...
This release is fine but still some problems i downloaded the SDK and install the .vsix file and added the reference of the new DLL in my project everything is fine but once i upload the whole solution on SVN and try to run the same project in another system in which i didn't install the SDK but i have the refernece of new dll , the BETA watermark is still there , to fix this problem i install the SDK after that watermark is gone forever , is this some issue with this release ?
I downloaded the new version of Bing map from this page. On this page the version of the bing map is 1.1.20120927.0 When I reference the downloaded Bing Map in my project, it is still showing the version number of 18.104.22.168 When I try to run "Windwos App Certification Kit" on my app, it is complaining about the BING MAPS. The certification tool fails with following error messages:

Well I was getting the same Red Stop sign issue some people have reported. This happens if your Computer's Location is set to unsupported country. Dunno what the white list is, but India is not supported.
Go to Control-Panel->Clock,Language and Region->Change Location. Set Home Location to United States and test. Thing should work. What a mess!!!
BTW myMap.HomeRegion="US" suggested by Tore85 didn't work. Maybe I am doing it wrong so if he can supply a working sample it will help!
You guys seem to be kicking out updates every few weeks. Which I am guessing is good. It would be really nice to know what's changed / fixed / improved. This way if we have some sort of fix or limitation we can re-evaluate that hack or omission with each release. Also it would be almost essential to notify us of any API changes, additions or deprecations. Thank you.
No idea what's going on but I get an error "Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component." on geolocator GetGeopositionAsync.
Try everything nothing work, any idea?
so far restarted, reinstall Bing Maps SDK (latest version). No luck so far, really need help
I have problems binding a double value to the latitude and longitude values of the location in my xaml.
Binding the same values to the latitude and longitude of a pushpin works though.
As a result my map's location is somehere next to Africa (must be 0,0). The pushpin gets displayed on its correct position.
The display and performance of bing map is not good
And after i downloaded 1.1.20120927.1 version (Last updated 10/30/2012)
It still doesn't work well
And even more, test failed of bing map in arm windows surface rt platform
Is the 10/30/2012 version is as same as 1.0 version?
I've got the Bing Maps SDK working nicely - and packaged using Visual Studio - and took onto another Windows8 PC. BUT - the Bing Maps extension wasn't included (I don't think)...
And the app crashes as soon as it starts - do I need to register the DLL's for Bing.Maps.Xaml ?? HOW ??
Do you need to install VS2012 and this extension on each app that uses the Maps? Our app works on our dev machines, but the tablet always crashes when trying to load the maps (which doesn't have VS2012 installed)
I have an app that uses Bing maps as a crucial part. And I cannot submit it to the store due to the delay. I need to meet a deadline.
So please tell us when the final release will be available.
Otherwise we have to find an alternative solution (without maps).
