  • Can you provide more information or maybe a code sample?  I am using Bing Maps in my Grid app and I am not having any problems.

    In this case i build the application on javaScript windows 8 Grid app.. in my project, i use application bar.. one of the application bar button.. navigate to bing Maps page. which is i made before..
    Bing Maps doesn't appears when
    i was navigate to bing Maps page(Page Control) not HTML Page.. my code running well.. i guarantee that..
    but, when i try build the maps in Blank App.. its running well and work..
    I don't know exactly about that..

     <div id="mapdiv"></div>

    on bingMaps.js

    app.onactivated = function (args) {
        if (args.detail.kind === activation.ActivationKind.launch) {
            if (args.detail.previousExecutionState !== activation.ApplicationExecutionState.terminated) {
            } else {
            args.setPromise(WinJS.UI.processAll().then(function () {
                Microsoft.Maps.loadModule('Microsoft.Maps.Map', { callback: initMap });

    function initMap() {
        try {
            var mapOptions =
                credentials: "my key",
     center: new Microsoft.Maps.Location(50, 50),
                mapTypeId: Microsoft.Maps.MapTypeId.road,
