When will Bing Maps SDK for Windows Store app support China? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My customer includes the Bing Map into the Windows Store app. However, if the Home Location is set to China, the map does not show up. If the Home Location changes US, the map shows correctly. I know this behavior happens because Bing Map does not support China currently. 

    I am wondering whether Bing Maps SDK will support China in the future. If yes, when will it start to support?

  • This is something that is being worked on. I can't communicate any time lines on the forums. One thing you can do get your apps to work in China is to check the HomeRegion property to see if it is one of the listed countries and if it is then change the HomeRegion to US. This will then make the map use the US map control. you can then change the language of the map using the culture property.
