  • I'm still not clear what you're actually trying to do, but you've got a lot of separate issues here....

    Firstly there are potential legal issues - see Earthware's post about if you're trying to use both Bing Maps and Google Maps as part of the same solution (which I'm still not sure is actually what you want). Also note that it's illegal to use Google Maps on a local server anyway...

    Secondly, it sounds like you my have a bug in your code, but seeing as you can't/won't post the code or a link to your page, it's going to be impossible to help you.

    Thirdly, seeing as it's Google Maps that is breaking, I suggest that you ask for support from the Google Maps forum rather than here. However, I can tell you now that you will almost certainly receive the same response there (i.e. you can't use both products together, and if you want technical help you need to supply a URL link to your page).

    To go back to my first post, if you want an online mapping provider that provides birdseye view, use Bing Maps.

  • Quite simply, you can't. You can't simply export one feature of a given program and expect it to work in another program. If you want to use Bird's eye then you need to use Bing Maps.

  • quite simply, combining bing maps and google maps in the same mapping solution breaks the license agreement of both platforms which state they cannot be used with other competitor products

  • Right.... so you want to use both Bing Maps and Google Maps on the same webpage?

    Can you paste the URL of your page? What part of Google Maps stops working (does the map not appear, does it not display correct data, do you get an error?)

    If Google Maps stops working but Bing Maps is working ok, perhaps you should post a request on the relevant Google Maps support forum rather than here?

  • When I use a bing map, my google map stops to work completely.

    I don't get any error but It just hangs my application. But bing map works properly.

    Sorry, I can't give url as it is on my local server...
