I know that there is a Bing Maps SDK for iPhone, but currently the SDK is quite limited from its functionality.
But for iOS there is excellent open source map library called Route-Me.
Can I somehow legally get the Bing Maps to work with Route-Me library?
The implementation of this is peace of cake, but the Legal part is a problem. So can I do it if I just add the Attributions about Bing Maps to my program?
MotionX has a licence use Bing Maps in native application, can you somehow apply for similar agreement?

You can incorporate Bing Maps into other applications (subject to some constraints), so long as you access those Bing Maps resources through supported APIs.
There have been situations in which Bing Maps tiles have been legally incorporated into other Open Source applications - the Open Street Maps Potlatch editor uses Bing Maps aerial imagery for example, but if you're not sure it's probably best to be negotiated on an individual basis - try contacting email@example.com

After digging around the net I found out that the original Route-Me had already support for using virtual earth maps, so with couple of changes I got the map working also with latest codes.
I will ask from the firstname.lastname@example.org can I use the map in my application.
